Are you ready to swap procrastination for productivity, and overwhelm for motivation, so that you can have an easier studying life AND achieve better results?

Then it's time to let me help you build new study habits and learn smart strategies to boost your confidence, focus and grades!

The doors close on November 1st 2020...


There are limited spots and when I reopen again the price will be higher!

Are you really bloody motivated to achieve your degree, but not always so motivated by the actual studying part?

A degree is made up of tens of thousands of micro-decisions – to study, or not to study. To push on through stress/overwhelm/distractions/fear of failure...or take the evening off. To scroll on your phone a little bit longer and watch another episode of Netflix...or drag your butt off the sofa to study.

And a degree feels a million times longer when you don’t feel particularly in control of these decisions.

When you make study plans, but can’t stick to them. When you tell yourself that you WILL start your assignments early, but then the same cycle repeats itself – fall behind, fail to catch up, rush to write something in just a few days or hours, submit something that’s not your best work. 

Every-damn-time you vow to change...but you can’t by yourself.

You try to give yourselves pep talks and keep yourself accountable, but it doesn’t seem to work. You pride yourself on being a supportive friend and love helping those you care about, but you struggle to encourage and build yourself up to overcome your studying stumbling blocks. 

Now, let’s add into this that the world we’re living in right now is incredibly isolating.

Whether you’re a distance learner already, or have become one due to the pandemic – you have to spend hours each week studying by yourself, with little interaction with other students. And depending on the current rules where you are, you can’t even top up your happiness meter by spending time with friends and family.

This can make it even harder to motivate yourself to study. You wake up more often feeling lethargic than energised which is impacting your productivity and mindset. 

Ultimately, your studying mindset is EVERYTHING.

If you’re feeling at all negative, whether that’s due to:
– disappointment over past grades;
– fear of failure;
– overwhelm at the amount of tasks you have to complete;
– or feeling stressed AF trying to fit studying in your crazy-busy life…

...then you’re going to find it difficult to feel motivated, start studying, be productive, stay focused, and get shit done.

And if you’re regularly unproductive and you struggle to make consistent progress, then you’ll have to spend more time studying than you need to, AND you’ll likely achieve lower grades than you’re capable of.

GAHHHH! It’s a vicious bloody cycle.

Yes, studying IS supposed to challenge you.

Your course is designed to introduce you to alien ideas and give you tasks that you’ve never done that you can pop out the other end with new skills, new knowledge and a fancy schmancy degree certificate.

But while studying is meant to be challenging and tough at times, it’s also supposed to be manageable and enjoyable.

I don’t want your studies to be something you drag yourself through. That you accept the next few years are going to be stressful with a ton of sacrifices made to your social life, happiness and rest.

Because it IS possible to feel in control of your studying. To regain your momentum and fire up that studying motivation you started your course with. To be more organised and build up your confidence so you can tackle any challenge your studies throws at you.

The ability to further our education is a privilege. 

It’s time to let me help you enjoy your studies again.

The Kickbutt Students Club

The Kickbutt Students Club is an online membership for students in higher education, either at university, college or studying for a professional qualification. This is the place to be for non-traditional students combining studying with a busy life. Whether you’re a mature student, distance learner or you're studying while’ll be part of a supportive community of likeminded students who understand what you’re going through.

You’ll have access to accountability, encouragement, mindset coaching, study skills training and expert guidance to help you have an easier, more enjoyable studying life. You’ll get my expert guidance and support as you learn exactly how to boost your productivity, confidence and grades.

Limited spots! Enrol now before the price goes up!

When you join The Kickbutt Students Club you’ll get access to a private, members-only Facebook community, expert guidance and coaching, a schedule of virtual study sessions and coaching calls, and a Club Portal of powerful resources and skills trainings.

You’re free to pick and choose the elements of the membership you get involved in and you’ll be able to reap the benefits in as little as 20-30 minutes a week.

Enrol in The Kickbutt Students Club 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 KSC, 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. If you’re having a bad day or week, if you’re struggling to make yourself study when your friends and family are having fun, you can post in the group and lean on the support of me and the other awesome students to put some pep back in your step.

Get your studying done when you say you will

You’ll learn my 3-step study Progress Method to help you create realistic study plans that bring you closer towards your study goals...and then actually achieve them. Each week, you’ll be prompted to check in with the group to keep you accountable. And if you’re feeling stuck or unmotivated, I’ll be on hand to help unstick you so you can make progress.

During the virtual study sessions I’ll guide you in training your brain and increasing your attention span so that you can stay focused and productive for longer, and therefore complete your to-do list faster.

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 Kickbutt Students Club is designed to give you the support you need when you need it. I’ll be on hand Monday to Friday to troubleshoot issues with you and answer any and all your studying questions.

And there will be opportunities for group coaching on Zoom where 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 people are saying about The Kickbutt Students Club

Sarah Johnson

Occupational Therapy student, UK

When I started studying as a mature student at 29 I somehow believed that I would be able to get decent grades without putting in masses of effort or being particularly organised. An exam failure in my first year and some disappointing grades proved I was wrong very wrong. I found Chloe through her book and wanted to work with her as I found her relatable, some of the issues I had she had experienced on her own journey and she understood how difficult being a student can be.

Since working with Chloe I’ve been able to improve my organisational skills and learned how to deal with the dreaded procrastination which has affected my grades in the past. I’ve always found the courses well run and organised and they are really engaging and great fun. My grades have improved since working with Chloe and I am so pleased! I’m more organised and feel more equipped to deal with problems I may come across whilst studying instead of feeling overwhelmed and choosing to ignore them!

I would absolutely recommend working with Chloe, she is understanding and really puts in the effort with the courses and materials she provides and also provides excellent support!

Christina Dömer

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. The biggest shock was the huge amount of material, and finding out how to tackle it, what's important and how should I remember everything for my exams?? So, the big internet search started and after reading a huge amount of study tips (hello Pinterest) I realised they have one thing in common: full-time students.

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 Pinterest post by Chloe. 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.

I knew a routine was important to get studying done but I didn’t realise how important it was before joining The Kickbutt Students Club. Chloe's built a program where you can create a routine of studying that works for you. The routines I created felt so natural for me after a few weeks that I kept them going during the summer break. Chloe is always there in the group and if you need help with whatever you can ask her or the other members of the Club. Chloe's printables are always on my desk as I use them for work as well. You’ll learn for life and not just for your studying. The most important thing I've learned working with Chloe: studying does not have to be unpleasant but can actually be fun!

Juliette Dupuy

Psychology Student, Ireland

Before I joined The Kickbutt Students Club, I was really struggling with discipline – really just showing up and studying. And my grades were just above average. What attracted me to working with Chloe was that she just seemed to get where I was at! There was no judgment or shame, she just seemed to really want to help, and was actually great at it! I learned lots of useful tips and methods and I gained an understanding of why routines are important. The Pomodoro method was also a huge takeaway for me.

It was great to have a study support group while things were all very chaotic during lockdown! It was very relaxed yet also very focused. Judgment free and lots of encouragement and support which was very appreciated! My study skills and mindset have definitely improved. I feel more confident and also just more relaxed about studying and not so focused on results/grades but more on what I’m gaining while studying such as skills and mindset – which actually makes better grades more attainable!

The Kickbutt Students Club is definitely worth the investment to work with Chloe. It makes studying more enjoyable and achievable!

Here's what's included in The Kickbutt Students Club


Private, members-only community

You’ll get access to a supportive, encouraging, private Facebook group where you’ll be able to get to know and network with other awesome non-traditional students. Here’s where you can ask me any and all your studying questions and ask for recommendations or tips from the rest of the group.

If you’re feeling stressed or unmotivated, post in the group and you’ll get encouragement from the others and advice and a friendly kick up the butt from me to get you moving again. This is a safe space for you to share your struggles but also to share your wins with other students who get what you’re going through.


Weekly accountability and motivation

I’ll post in the group three times each week prompting you to:
– create a study plan and share it with me for feedback
– check your progress and reach out if you’re feeling stuck, stressed or overwhelmed
– wrap up the week, celebrate your wins and reflect on small changes you could make for even more success.

These posts will keep you accountable and feeling motivated. They’ll allow you to build awesome studying habits and routines that will help you ditch procrastination so you can study proactively, make consistent progress and complete your to-do list in less time.


Virtual study sessions

Once a week I’ll run a two-hour virtual study session on Zoom where you can study alongside me and the rest of your kickbutt student pals. These coach-led sessions will boost your motivation and productivity and help you train your brain so you can reduce procrastination and stay focused for longer in all your study sessions.

During each session there will be time for questions, uninterrupted study intervals, and short breaks to keep you feeling fresh. You’ll be whizzing through your to-do list! The sessions will change time each week and will typically be arranged for evenings or weekends (UK time). I’ll even record a few of them so you can use them during your solo study sessions to help you stay focused and on track.


Members-only 24/7 virtual study room

You’ll have access to a dedicated Zoom room to host your own virtual study sessions with other Club members. Simply post in the Facebook group anytime to see if other students are around to hop in and study with you.

You can use this awesome membership element to keep procrastination at bay, maintain your motivation and focus throughout the week, and feel less alone as you study at home. If I’m around and available I will also try to arrange some additional ad-hoc study sessions.


Monthly group coaching call

As well as being able to ask questions as and when in the Facebook group, each month I’ll host a Q&A coaching call on Zoom which you can join to get my personalised, expert advice on your studying problems. Need a pep talk? Struggling to stay focused? Got a mindset issue that’s making you miserable? Stuck on an upcoming essay question? I can help. And if you can’t make it live you’ll be able to submit your questions and catch up on the recording.


Club portal with study skills trainings and resources

You’ll get a login to the Club Portal where you’ll find the recordings from the coaching calls and virtual study sessions AND the study skills trainings and resources. When you first join the membership, you’ll get immediate access to the three-step Progress Method training, printables and planners. You’ll learn the simple 20-minute weekly planning and review process that will seriously skyrocket your productivity and results.

Then, each month, you’ll be asked to submit your ideas for mini-trainings, or areas that you’re struggling with e.g. motivation, mindset, productivity, organisation, time management, note taking, essay writing, critical thinking, exam prep. I’ll take the most popular ideas and create video and audio trainings and printables, planners and worksheets to help you improve your study skills and boost your progress.

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.

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, zero desire to go to 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.

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 what people are saying about working with me

Kate Anantasila

Master of Laws, Germany

I came to Chloe at the end of the second year of my law degree. I knew I needed to improve my marks otherwise it would be game over for becoming a Barrister. I'd already tried really hard to achieve higher grades but I couldn’t. I felt stuck with no idea how to improve. Chloe doesn’t read law but she helped me achieve higher grades by teaching me fundamental study skills. She brought the best out of me, identified my weak spots and helped me improve these areas. Chloe is a very calm coach. She was always there for me and always used her full potential to help me.

My second year results pre-Chloe were 53, 54, 62 and 59. My third year results after working with Chloe jumped to 76, 74 and 76. With Chloe’s help I achieved the final grade I needed to meet the requirement for the Bar course. I am completely overwhelmed with happiness and gratitude and the dream I thought was shattered has been rebuilt. Trust me. It is a rare opportunity to find guidance like this. If you want to turn your dream into a reality and achieve the degree you want, decide to improve your study skills and call on Chloe.

Sarah Menzies

Business Management student, UK

As a previous student, Chloe understands the pressures we're going through and can offer tailored support when you need it, and in creative ways. Her study skills strategies are great and helped me change how I work so instead of repeating the same mistakes, I changed my way of thinking.

With Chloe's help I went from achieving essay grades between 55-65% to essay grades of 75-85%. Her friendly, open approach is what embeds her system. I would recommend Chloe to anyone with a desire to achieve the very best they can.

Lauren Callan

Dentistry student, USA

I’ve ALWAYS struggled with my confidence. I’d find myself procrastinating for days or weeks when I had an essay to write because I felt so overwhelmed and unconfident. And even though I have a clear dream for what I want to do with my degree, I really struggled with motivating myself day-to-day, especially when I got home from work and was tired.

But your advice for motivation was so useful! I honestly feel like a completely different person - not just as a student but at work and at home too. I’m much more positive, I’m ticking loads off my to-do list, and for the first time I actually believe I’m capable and good enough to be here. Thank you so much, Chloe!

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’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.

Now, working with me one-on-one for any length of time costs £100s.

But I’m not asking you to invest that much for The Kickbutt Students Club.

For the price of a takeaway, you can get my expert guidance and encouraging support on your studying journey.

But you’ve gotta be quick.

I’m limiting the spaces for this first round and enrolment’s only open until November 1st 2020 (unless the spaces go by then).

And the price WILL be going up once those doors close so this is the best deal you’re gonna get to work with me this year.

And the great thing? Once you’re in, your founding members’ rate is locked in. No matter how much the public price increases, once enrolled, your cost will remain the same during your subscription.

One month from now, if you don’t join The Kickbutt Students Club, what will your studying look like? More of the same? Overwhelm, stress, procrastination?

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.

One month from now, you’re going to 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 relaxxxxxxx.

All you’ve gotta do is say yes.

Claire Pickering

Law student, Australia

Chloe has been there and done it so she knows how hard it is to study and work and do everything else. Within just a few days of working with her I noticed the difference in my studying. I used to struggle to stay focused for more than 10 minutes but now I get into the flow and I can study for hours happily. I was motivated when I first started studying but at half way through my degree my motivation was waning. Not anymore!

Chloe taught me how to keep my motivation up and I'm so grateful! Also, I love, love, love all her worksheets. I've printed and completed them all and refer to them every day. Chloe - I can't thank you enough for helping me get through my degree.

Tina Lewis

Psychology student, UK

Chloe, I can’t believe how different my studying is! Before I worked with you I found myself putting off starting my essays and I could never find the time or energy to study after a long day at work. I was starting to doubt whether I should even be studying because it should be easy to study as an adult, right? Well, it is now I’ve learned from you!

Your advice and resources are simple to follow they work – wow! I’ve been using them every day and they’re really helping me stay on top of things. I was even able to take the weekend off last week because I’d finished all my studying for the week, that’s never happened before! Thank you so much Chloe for showing me a different way. I feel so much more positive and motivated now.

Lisa Humphries

Student, UK

Chloe, I need to let you know that you are heaven sent! I am quite serious when I say that discovering you on Pinterest was the best thing that has ever happened to my study. I am a mature aged student, studying towards a career change (yes, it's never too late) and even though life experiences have probably prepared me in some way to overcome the anxiety, frustration and 'oh god, what do I do now? feelings, your advice keep me going. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to have Facebook to join the membership?

The Facebook group is where a lot will be happening: the accountability posts; the opportunity to ask me questions; the support from the community. And it will be where you can post to see if anyone's around to study with you in the Zoom room.

Without joining the Facebook group you would still have access to everything else – the virtual study session, monthly coaching, and the study skills trainings.

But I would definitely recommend having Facebook to get the most out of the awesome community experience and because the membership does NOT come with email support from me.

In the past I've had students join Facebook and create a profile just to use with the group. They don't add any friends, like any pages or join anything else which means they can login and just enjoy what's happening in the KSC group.

How much is the membership?

The cost of the membership is £30 per month. There is also the option to enrol for 8 months, taking you to 30th June 2021, for £200 (saving you £40).

The price WILL be going up to £35 per month when the Club reopens at the end of November so today’s enrolment fee of £30 per month is the lowest the membership will ever cost.

 Once enrolled your membership cost will remain the same, no matter how much the public price increased. However, if you leave the Club and re-enrol at a later date, you will have to join at the new rate.

What support do I get from you?

I will be available to answer questions in the private Facebook group and will respond to posts/comments within 24 hours Monday-Friday. If you participate in the weekly accountability posts you will also get my feedback on your study plans, my expert study advice and mindset coaching to help you progress. Support also includes the weekly virtual study session and the monthly group coaching call. The membership does NOT include one-on-one calls or email support.

How much time will the membership take up?

My aim is NOT to give you a million videos to watch or posts to read – you’ve got enough of that in your studies, right? Instead, I’ve designed the Club to offer various elements of support, coaching and training and you’re free to pick and choose which parts you get involved in. You’ll be able to reap the benefits of the accountability and motivation aspects in as little as 20-30 minutes a week – time you will get back 10X over in productivity and progress.

Then there’s the weekly virtual study session of 1.5-2 hours where you’ll get a shiz load of studying done in a focused environment. Then you have the option to join the monthly coaching call to get my expert eyes on your studying problems.

Who is the membership for?

Adult learners aged 18 or over studying in higher education – either at university, college or for a professional qualification. I specialise in working with non-traditional learners, those who’ve returned to study after a break, who study online/at a distance, or who are studying while working and/or raising a family. While traditional adult learners are welcome in the Club too, I’ve designed the membership specifically to support non-traditional students on their often-chaotic studying journey as I understand their unique challenges.

Does it matter what subject I'm studying?

Nope. I don't need to be an expert in your subject-matter because I'm an expert in study skills. I'll teach you smart study strategies that work and then help you tailor them to your studying – whatever the subject. I've worked with people studying: psychology, law, nursing, education, accounting, business, biology, economics, sociology, veterinary medicine, criminology, dentistry, civil engineering, humanities, biostatistics...and more!

Do you offer refunds?

I do not offer refunds so please read the membership description carefully and email me at with any questions you have before enrolling so you can ensure you’re making the right decision.

If you sign up for the monthly membership your subscription will roll over monthly. If you do decide to leave the Club simply email me 48 hours before your renewal date and I’ll cancel your membership.

If you sign up for a longer-term membership, again simply email me 48 hours before your renewal date and I’ll cancel your membership.

How long will I have access to the membership?

You will have access to the full experience – members-only group, weekly and monthly sessions, Club portal of trainings and resources – for the period of your membership.

I am SO excited to open up the doors to my membership.

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.

I hope you join us in The Kickbutt Students Club so I can support you on your studying journey too.

I know you are so much more capable than you think. But you don’t need to be confident in yourself before joining the Club. Let me believe in you and support you first and it will soon come.
