Jeremy Cox, a schoolteacher from Florida, founded Study Smarts™ in 1997 in an effort to help his own students become independent learners. While researching study skills, Jeremy learned that close to 80% of colleges require a study skills or developmental course for in-coming freshmen. This fact alone revealed a truth that the study skills gap must be bridged earlier in a student’s education.
Unlike traditional study skills solutions that typically only reach a few teachers, rarely any parents, and only certain grade levels, he wanted something that would enhance the educational environment of everyone involved. Jeremy found what he was looking for in a curriculum developed by Dr. Cindy Evans.
