Jeremy Cox - Founder, Study Smarts™
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.
Dr. Evans is a professor of study skills who reached national recognition through the University of South Carolina for the curriculum she developed at the college level. She used her knowledge and expertise to develop a curriculum suited to meet the needs of students in grades 5-12. Equipped with an award-winning curriculum and his own creativity, Jeremy began the journey to conduct his first on-site field trip to the “University of Study Smarts.”
After almost 20 years of study skills training, Study Smarts™ has been in almost every state, trained over 40,000 students and several thousand teachers and parents in a live workshop setting.
Study Smarts™ also has a DVD/Workbook solution that has been used for nearly 10 years and has been responsible for training thousands of participants.
Moving forward, we are looking forward seeing what kind of impact our membership option will bring to students, teachers and parents on a world-wide scale.
The mission of Study Smarts™ is to partner with schools, churches, organizations and families to inspire students to think positively about themselves, create a desire in them to stay motivated to do their best and encourage them to apply study skills concepts that will allow them to achieve their maximum potential in school and life.
We look forward to working with your school, church, organization and/or family!
