Do you feel like you've never been taught HOW to study? Do you want to know the secret to achieving higher grades?
Then it's time to let me teach you how to learn.
It's time to discover the smart, simple, tried-and-tested study strategies you need to boost your confidence and achieve better results in less time and with a lot less stress.
The doors close on Saturday 18th September 2021...
Do any of these sound familiar?
So here's the problem...and it isn't your fault
We're not born with study skills - they need to be taught or developed over time.
The problem is – school and then university don't focus on teaching you these skills. They focus on teaching you the material instead.
While your university teaches you WHAT to study, it doesn't actually teach you HOW to study.
That means YOU have to take responsibility for developing the study skills you need to achieve the grades you want.
But, you don't have to go it alone...
The Get the Grades Bootcamp
The Get the Grades Bootcamp is a concentrated study skills experience designed to teach you the exact study strategies you need to seriously improve your studies FAST.
In this weekend, virtual, group intensive, I'll teach you the study techniques you need to achieve higher university grades. You'll walk away with new habits and routines, a bucket load of confidence and a toolkit of study strategies you can use in all future studying to secure the grades you've always wanted.
Limited spots! Enrol now before the doors close
Enrol in the Get The Grades Bootcamp and you'll:
Save time, find studying easier AND achieve better results
Unless you’ve specifically been taught how to study, I can guarantee you’ll be wasting time each week using ineffective study techniques. And that’s not including time spent procrastinating, multitasking, feeling frozen in overwhelm, or getting distracted.
In the Bootcamp, you’ll learn simple, smart study techniques in all skills areas: motivation, mindset, productivity, organisation, time management, note taking, essay writing, critical thinking, exam prep...and more. And you’ll build new habits and routines to help you save time each week and have an easier studying life.
And by understanding how to study, you’ll discover the best techniques for your situation and course which will save you time and boost your grades.
Feel like you’re on your studying journey with students just like you
You’ll join a supportive, encouraging community of students in similar positions to you. I specialise in working with non-traditional students who are studying alongside a busy life with work and family. I was a mature student, distance learner and I worked full-time so I understand the stressors you face.
We’ll encourage you when you’re feeling down or unmotivated and and we’ll celebrate your studying wins to boost your confidence and motivation. You don’t have to feel so alone in your studying.
Get your studying done when you say you will
You’ll learn my tried-and-tested simple methods to create realistic study plans that bring you closer towards your study goals...and then actually achieve them. I'll teach you how to maintain your motivation and increase your attention span so you can get yourself out of a studying funk and make consistent progress.
And if you’re feeling stuck or unmotivated at any time during the Bootcamp and in the support afterwards, I’ll be on hand to help unstick you so you can make progress.
Get the support and tools you need to stay positive and overcome challenges
Your tutors or lecturers are there to help you if you’re struggling with a concept, or need some assessment guidance. But they likely take a few days (if not longer) to respond, their answers aren’t very detailed, and they’re not able to help you with wider problems such as issues with motivation, mindset, confidence or time management.
The support package of the Bootcamp is designed to give you the support you need when you need it. Perhaps you have questions you feel embarrassed to ask your tutor or supervisor – bring them to me instead as no questions too big, small, sensible or silly.
And during the training weekend, group coaching and your bonus one-on-one call, I’ll give you personalised guidance on the best study techniques for you and your situation. You’ll learn my core principles of successful studying so you can develop your own problem-solving muscles, become a more confident learner and actually start enjoying studying (madness!!)
Here’s what some of the previous Bootcampers have to say
International Studies graduate, UK
"Before receiving help from Chloe I was struggling to meet the scores I needed to gain the results necessary for my course and at the end of my second year of university I was failing. I struggled with motivation, mindset, confidence and the critical thinking skills I so badly needed.
When I first signed up for Chloe’s bootcamp I was nervous. I shouldn’t have been. Chloe presents and breaks down each step very well and it is such an enjoyable experience working with her. By the end of Bootcamp I was extremely motivated and felt I had gained skills that would help me improve in almost all areas of my work. I was able to use the tools Chloe gave me to think differently about assignment questions and my results improved from 60% to 80%.
The help Chloe has given me throughout my third year was invaluable and the only regret I have is not getting involved with her sooner."
Commerce and Law student, Australia
“Chloe’s Bootcamp was amazing! Before I was really struggling to find a way to study effectively. She gave me different techniques for studying - particularly essays where I didn’t know how to start and break it down. Now I do!
I was also really struggling with motivation, it was good to know that there are others that struggle not just me and then to know how to overcome that and keep going.
I can’t thank Chloe enough for giving me a new outlook on my study. I was able to pass all my units and achieve high marks in my exams (in the 80s) after battling with lots of failed subjects and having to take a year and a half off because of it.”
Education and Psychology student, UK
"I think I have thanked Chloe way too much over the last few days…your Bootcamp has been incredible and I already feel much more confident, especially after hearing your strategies for procrastination. I’ve literally put the Bootcamp down in my gratitude journal today as it’s been so amazing.
Before joining the Bootcamp my confidence and studying mindset was low and I struggled massively with managing my time, organising my study schedule, managing procrastination and my entire assignment writing process. My grades increased almost instantly from the 70s to now achieving 90-95%. The Bootcamp taught me so much, the best things being that my studying is now much less stressful now AND I actually look forward to studying!”
Here's what's included in the Get The Grades Bootcamp
Live, virtual study skills training programme
On the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd October, we’ll meet in Zoom for multiple training sessions. During these interactive workshops, I’ll share my expert advice and guidance on the core study skills areas: motivation, mindset, productivity, organisation, note taking, essay writing, and exam preparation. There will be simple exercises to help you embed your learning and you’ll have the opportunity to ask me as many questions as you’d like.
There will also be an introductory session on the 23rd September where we’ll get to know each other, review your current study skills, and walk through my learning fundamentals...all to set you up for an epic Bootcamp.
During the live training sessions, you'll learn strategies for:
GOAL SETTING > review your current study skills and identify improvement areas; understand the grades you need; set new study goals, create new study habits...and more.
MOTIVATION & MINDSET > get and stay motivated; develop a strong mindset; deal with negative thinking and low motivation; become more positive...and more.
PRODUCTIVITY & ORGANISATION > organise your time, notes and files; create a study plan that fits around your busy life; how to be more productive; anti-procrastination techniques...and more.

EXAM REVISION > create a revision plan; science-backed revision techniques for different exam types; how to remember what you learn; in-exam techniques...and more.
We'll start at 10:30 UK time and wrap-up by 18:00 and there will be two 1-hour breaks throughout. If you can't join for the whole day don't worry – you can drop in and out as you wish and then catch up later with the recordings.
Post-Bootcamp accountability support
You'll get 5 weeks of support in total, with 3 of them being after the training weekend, so you’ll have full access to me as you begin to implement all your awesome new study strategies.
I’ll help you build some awesome new study habits and support you as you tweak them to find the best for your own unique situation. I’ll help you create a personal action plan to improve your study skills moving forward, and I’ll help you tailor the Bootcamp strategies to your subject and course format. I’ll be there to cheer you on when you succeed and pick you back up again when you stumble.
Private, supportive community
You’ll be able to connect with all the other awesome, like-minded Bootcampers who are going through the same challenges as you. You’ll feel buoyed up and inspired by each other’s experiences and finally have a safe space to share what’s really going on for you on your studying journey – the highs and the lows.
Lifetime access to the trainings and resources
Each video training will be recorded and uploaded into a portal with lifetime access. So don’t worry if you can’t attend all the sessions live. You can catch up and then ask me any and all your questions in the 3 weeks after the Bootcamp weekend.
And you’ll be able to dive back in throughout all your future studying to refresh and uplevel your skills – once a Bootcamper, always a Bootcamper. Anddd you’ll get access to the crap-ton of resources, printables and worksheets you can use to achieve better results, faster.
2 additional group coaching calls
In the 3 weeks following the Bootcamp weekend I’ll hold 2 additional group coaching calls where you can ask me anything. For example, bring along an essay question for me to help you breakdown, bring along some essay feedback you want me to decipher, get my help in creating a note taking strategy or exam revision schedule – whatever you want. Pre-submit a question if you can’t make it as these calls will be recorded and uploaded to the portal too.
**BONUS JUST FOR THIS ROUND** One-on-one call
Sometimes you just need some 1-on-1 support. Included in this round of the Bootcamp is a 30-minute call that you can use anytime within 3 months of the Bootcamp. Bring along any and all your studying questions, get my coaching to help you resolve a mindset issue, or simply give me an update on your studies and we’ll see where I can offer some advice.
So why should you learn from me?
Hey, I’m Chloe.
I’m a study skills expert on a mission to teach university students how to study effectively...because your school didn't teach you and your university doesn't think it's their responsibility.
I’m no Hermione Granger, or Rory Gilmore. I don’t have a perfect academic record and I failed a crap-ton of exams at school. I even left school at 18 with low grades and zero desire to go to university...so I ran away to live in Barbados for a few years instead.
I returned to study in my 20s and completed a Business degree while working full-time (and trying to have a social life). This was a big investment and time and money for me so I was determined to achieve a First.
To achieve this I knew I had to ditch my old study habits and learn how to study effectively...FAST!
After cursing my schooling for not teaching me this stuff, I put on my big girl pants and started teaching myself how to study. I spent time researching HOW to learn effectively. I tested and tweaked heaps of strategies and created my own until I discovered what worked.
My stress dropped, my confidence grew, AND my grades started to climb until I was achieving distinctions in every module. And after four years I graduated with a First-Class degree, despite working full-time and being an academic failure at school.
Since then I’ve set up my own business and have worked with thousands of students from all over the world studying a bazillion different subjects. I’ve become an Ambassador for The Open University and delivered study skills workshops for them and other universities.
I’ve become certified in Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a powerful mindset approach I use to help my clients develop strong, confident growth mindsets. I’ve published The Return to Study Handbook, specifically for non-traditional learners, and I’m the host of the 5-star rated Chloe Made Me Study podcast. I'm also half-way through a qualification to become a Specialised Study Tutor for students with Specific Learning Differences.
I live and breatheeeeee this stuff.
My mission is to support any student who’s brave enough to return to study to get the grades they need for the career and life they want.
I don’t want you to struggle like I did. Studying is challenging, but I can help make your journey a lot easier, and dare I say it...even enjoyable!
Here’s more reviews of the Get the Grades Bootcamp
Arts and Humanities student, UK
“Chloe - you are amazing! Thank you so much! I dithered about enrolling in the Bootcamp for a few days because I hadn’t really understood what you could do for me. My thoughts now? What you can do is MAGIC! I followed your Instagram for a while and was picking up useful hints and tips so I decided to enrol in the Bootcamp because I wanted a quick way to improve my skills and grades drastically. Before the Bootcamp, my grades were very mixed. Some high scores and some around 55-65. My study skills were poor and my scores dropped a lot when I moved from level 1 to level 2.
I loved being able to attend the Bootcamp from home, and to know that other learners were in the same boat as me. It was great that I could ask questions and get your answers during the trainings. I would say all of my study skills have improved since the Bootcamp. My time management and planning skills got the biggest kick up the you-know-what they’ve ever had - and well overdue too! I’ve learned so much about mindset, motivation, productivity - I feel like a completely different student! I’m happier and more confident, I’ve learned how to work with my feedback (rather than being scared of it!) and I’m no longer terrified of picking modules that have exams because I’ve learned how to revise effectively.
I’ve learned so much and I love that I can go back in and recap before each new module. If I manage to improve from a 2:1 to a First (which I feel could definitely happen now), I’ll raise a glass to you on my celebration day! To anyone thinking of enrolling - do it! You’d be mad not to. If you want friendly, supportive help with tried-and-tested techniques, talk to Chloe. It is the best decision of the year I’ve made so far!”
Applied Linguistics (MA) student, UK
"My grades weren't as good as I'd like them to be and my study skills were inconsistent, I couldn't stick with anything and felt I wasn't good enough. Chloe taught me how to think flexibly and so much fell into place during the essay training. Chloe had a suggestion for an approach or solution no matter what study problem we came up with. Her explanations were always really clear and backed up with understandable examples. Everyone in the group was really friendly and positive – it was great to know I’m not alone!
My mindset has completely changed, I'm so much more positive. I'm studying even when tired which was a real problem for me, my planning is much better and I'm no longer beating myself up when things don't go according to plan. It's still hard work but I'm actually looking forward to my next module instead of dreading it. I'm even looking forward to my next essay so that I can give the essay planning strategies a go!
This Bootcamp was worth every penny, I’m so glad I took the time and effort to invest in myself. I’m so much more relaxed about my studies and my family have noticed the difference too!”
Education and International Development (MA) student, UK
“I was in a very bad place with my essay writing right before the Bootcamp and was tying myself in knots about it. I kept procrastinating and putting it off and then stressing so much about it. I enrolled in the Bootcamp specifically to improve my essay writing skills and it worked - long live your Table Method! I loved all the Bootcamp trainings. I really liked your presentation style, Chloe. It was engaging, bite-sized, fun and each module built on the previous one. It was a lot of content and your curriculum design made it manageable.
The biggest change I’ve noticed in myself since the Bootcamp has been my mindset. This term I’ve been procrastinating a lot less, my approach is more focused and my mindset is more confident and positive. I would definitely recommend the Bootcamp to other students, even if you are a postgraduate student like me. You might not have been taught these skills in your professional life or previous academic journey. It’s important to build a solid foundation and fill in any missing gaps. Go for it!”
Here's why you need to join today
How much time are you wasting faffing about, getting distracted, feeling frozen in overwhelm or putting off starting essays or revision for fear of failure? How much time are you wasting creating study plans and to-do lists you can’t stick to?
I know you’re a busy student and struggle to find time to study. So I want you to make the most out of the time you DO have, and squeeze every last drop of grade-boosting value out of your study time.
And how much energy are you using up stressing about your studies? Doubting yourself and your abilities? Beating yourself up for not studying when you said you would...again?
When you get home from work or when you’ve finally put the kids to bed and it’s time to study...it’s hard to find the energy to hit the books. Well imagine how much easier it would be and how much more motivated you’d feel if you...wait for it...started enjoying your studies more? If you gained your confidence back and felt empowered to tackle any challenges your education throws at you?
Imagine how much easier your whole darn life would be if we took care of the studying part – made it smoother, less of a struggle, a lot more fun.
I've been learning about study skills for the past NINE years. I've spent thousands of hours and thousands of £££ learning HOW to study in the most effective way, HOW to develop a strong mindset that's going to make studying more enjoyable and less stressful.
But I don't want you to have to spend NINE years and multiple thousands of £££ to learn how to study effectively.
Because I can teach you in just 1 weekend for just £350.
A typical 3-year degree in the UK costs £27,750 in fees alone.
For less than 1.3% of that you can take action to ensure you come out of that degree with the grades you need for the career and life you want.
Now, this round of the Bootcamp has just 25 spaces. And I won't be running another one until 2022.
Are you happy with where your grades are right now?
Are you happy with the time, energy and stress it's taking you to achieve these grades?
If your current grades continued would you come out with a degree you're really proud of?
If the answer to any of these is no...you're gonna want to join me in the upcoming Bootcamp.
One month from now, if you don’t enrol in the Bootcamp, what will your studying look like? More of the same? Overwhelm, stress, procrastination?
One month from now you'll be a month closer to your graduation. You could also be kicking back because you’ve finished all your study tasks and the only thing left on your to-do list is to relaaaaaaax.
I’m here to help. I know you can become a more successful student and actually enjoy the process. I’ve already helped 1000s do it. Now I want to help you.
All you’ve gotta do is say yes.

More happy Bootcampers
Psychology student, UK
"Before I joined the Bootcamp my study skills were pretty poor and I was barely passing my course. I loved everything about the Bootcamp and my biggest breakthrough was learning how to breakdown and understand an essay question - I’m even excited to start my next essay now! The only thing I’m disappointed with is that I did not find you sooner than I did! I’m so glad to have you to guide me through the last final pushes of my degree as, after this weekend, this is the most confident I have felt as a student! For anyone thinking of joining, 100% do it!"
Law student, UK
"My study skills used to be average, and my grades were in the 50s and 60s but, with Chloe's help, I'm now feeling a lot more positive and I'm so excited to smash my degree. Since the Bootcamp I've achieved two 85% grades in my essays! Every training session in the Bootcamp made me see something in a different light and I loved interacting with other students. I've noticed a big difference in my mindset already.
If you want to improve your study skills and learn how to get high grades…Chloe’s Bootcamp is the only way forward - excellent trainings, helpful guidance and a lovely person in general!"
Economics student, Germany
After the decision to start studying part time and with distance learning I quickly realised that it needs far more organisation and self-discipline than I thought. I’m not a full-time student and I don’t have any lectures where I can take notes or ask questions. I need to get through my material alone! But there was a light at the end of tunnel when I stumbled across a post by Chloe on Pinterest. And for the first time I felt understood and got tips for my unique study situation from someone who was in the same situation as me and shared her experiments.
If you really want to be a pro at all these skills, you should work with here in the Get the Grades Bootcamp. An intensive weekend where all the topics like organisation, mindset, note taking, revision etc is covered. It will give you a huge motivation boost as you realised, you’re not alone with the questions and uncertainties but you’ll also meet like minded people from all over the world you learn from.
Since the first Bootcamp I feel more at ease with my studying as my note taking, organisation and mindset improved. The most important thing I learned during my work with Chloe: studying does not have to be unpleasant but can also be fun!
Frequently Asked Questions

I start from the very beginning and then build up to more advanced strategies. This makes it great for beginners as well as more advanced students who want to fill the holes and gaps in their existing study skills #winwin
1. The price for the next round WILL be going up.
The price of the Bootcamp has stayed the same for the past 7 6 rounds so this will be the last round that the Bootcamp is just £350.
2. The spots are limited.
There are just 25 full spots and 10 alumni spaces for this round so that I can give everyone individual support and guidance.
3. The next round won't be until 2022.
...can your university results wait that long?
If you know you need higher grades for the degree classification, career and life you want, your time is now.
4. The results my Bootcampers have been getting are INSANE!
Before each Bootcamp I send my students a questionnaire to find out their current study skills levels and their struggles. After the latest Bootcamp, in the one-on-one calls, I read some of their answers back to them and they couldn't believe they actually wrote them.
Their confidence had increased so much. Problems had disappeared. Doubts they'd had for months or YEARS were gone.
5. Developing these foundational study skills will impact your all your future studying. Learn how to study now and you're primed for higher grades forever.
Nope. I don't need to be an expert in your subject-matter because I'm an expert in study skills.
I am not a tutor who will teach you the content of your course. I am a study skills coach who will teach you the strategies and mindset shifts you need to improve how you study, so you can get better grades forever. This means I can help a wider range of people studying a wider amount of courses. I studied Business but I've coached people who are studying Social Sciences and Psychology, Human Resources Management, Humanities, Law, Education, Psychology, Nursing.
If you want to talk to me directly to find out whether you're the right fit for this programme send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
You will have a login to access all the training recordings, slides and PDF goodies for life. If/when I remove the course you will be able to download everything first. So it's yours for keeps, forever.

I am SO excited to open up the doors to the EIGHTH round of the Bootcamp
Hands down the BEST part of my job is watching students transform in front of my eyes (or on a Zoom call!). When I first start working with a student, I can see and hear their tension, doubts and overwhelm.
But with my support, coaching and guidance they become completely different students. They gain so much confidence, they start to enjoy hitting the books, and studying suddenly feels easy for the first time ever.
But these transformations can sometimes feel out of reach. You may be reading this and reading the reviews from past Bootcampers and thinking, "But I can never do that."
And I get it, I was where you are once. But the thing is, we don't know what we don't know. If you've never been taught HOW to study (I wasn't), then you're not going to know that all the problems, challenges and doubts you experience are solvable with simple but powerful techniques.
I've made it my mission over the last 9 years to learn this stuff. But you don't have to. Come join us for 1 weekend and I'll give you everything you need to know to seriously transform your confidence, productivity, happiness and grades.
I know you are so much more capable than you think. But you don’t need to be confident in yourself before joining the Bootcamp. Let me believe in you and support you first and it will soon come.
