Join the Kickbutt Students Club
The next enrolment opportunity will be January 2024. Join the waitlist for early access AND an exclusive waitlist-only offer.
STRUGGLE TO FIND THE TIME TO STUDY?
The KSC is *not* going to take up your time, it’s going to give you the time back so you can achieve better results in *less* time each week.
You’ll study more strategically, focusing on the tasks that will help you achieve your study goals. You’ll study with more focus and productivity, either due to the structure of the organised study sessions or through the habits you pick up in them to implement in your solo studying.
You’ll spend less time feeling stuck because you’ll get speedy answers to any of your study questions AND you’ll have learned simple mindset tweaks and study strategies to reduce the amount of time you spend feeling stressed and overwhelmed.
You don’t have to get involved in every part of the KSC, simply pick the elements that are going to serve you at this point in your studies.
PROCRASTINATION AND LOW MOTIVATION ARE HOLDING YOU BACK
The KSC will help you build simple study habits that make your life easier and you’ll be held accountable to your study plans so you can make faster progress towards your study goals.
Within the private community, prompts are posted three times a week to encourage you to create study plans, course-correct if you’re getting off track, and then review your week to celebrate wins and identify tweaks to improve things.
At any time you can tag me if you’re feeling stuck and, using my coaching expertise, I adapt my approach to help *you* get unstuck. If you need a gentle approach, I’ve got you. If you need some tough love, I can do that too. If you need support taking the swirling mass of overwhelm out of your brain so you can move forward, I’ll be there.
STUDYING AS AN ADULT FEELS PRETTY LONELY
3 times a week in the KSC there are coach-led study sessions with other members – usually between 5-15 students in each session. We’ll study together and you’ll benefit from all the lovely benefits of co-regulation – more focus, less distractions, more positivity and more overall progress.
You don’t have to speak and you can keep your camera off the whole time if you want. The sessions change day/time each week and you don't have to stay for the whole thing.
Outside of these sessions, the Zoom room is open 24/7 so you can study informally alongside other members at most times of the day if you want some company and accountability.
YOU DON'T ALWAYS FEEL SUPPORTED BY YOUR TUTORS / LECTURERS
In the KSC, you’ll get fast, helpful answers to your questions and advice that suits you as a unique individual. Any day, any time, simply ask a question in the community and within 24 hours Monday to Friday you will get a response.
Not a response to simply go and re-read the module handbook or the guidance for your essay.
You’ll get in-depth, empathetic coaching and advice that is tailored to your specific situation, that takes into account your subject, learning style, academic goals and non-studying life.
The KSC is a virtual membership of support, accountability and community that will help you integrate studying into your busy life, feel more confident and motivated day-to-day, and ultimately graduate with your dream grades more easily.
Maybe you've returned to study after a few years (or decades) out of education. Maybe you're studying through distance learning. Maybe you're studying while working and/or raising a family.
The KSC is designed specifically for adult learners who need to figure out how to study alongside a busy life.
Enrolment closes for the year 14 Oct
3. STUDY PLANNING ACCOUNTABILITY
Within the private community you’ll have access to a simple system to help you set and achieve your study goals. Take just two minutes three times a week to complete the prompts and you’ll build quick, simple study habits that will allow you to finish up each week of your studies feeling happy and proud of your progress. No more getting stuck and staying stuck. No more spiralling or losing time to endless procrastination.
2. DAILY SUPPORT + COACHING
At any time, post in the community with any and all your studying questions and get an answer within 24 hours (Mon to Fri).
I’ve worked with 100s of students in the past 7 years on every single studying and mindset topic imaginable.
You’ve also got our Community Coordinator, Becky, on hand too who has over 10+ years of experience as a student advisor at two different universities.
1. MEMBERS-ONLY PRIVATE COMMUNITY
You’ll join a private community with the other KSC members. Students from all over the world studying all sorts of subjects but with a common goal – furthering your education as an adult with a busy life.
No social media distractions here, just an inspiring place to get to know other awesome students. You’ll be able to share your struggles and celebrate your wins with people who get it.
6. MONTHLY GROUP COACHING
This is your chance to not only get my personalised, expert study advice, but to also learn from the questions other students bring. Need a pep talk? Struggling to stay focused? Got a mindset issue that’s making you miserable? Panicking about an upcoming essay or exam? I’ll help you get unstuck and moving again.
Can’t make it live? Don’t worry. You can presubmit questions.
5. MEMBERS-ONLY, 24/7 STUDY ROOM
Outside of the coach-led sessions, you’ll be able to organise your own study sessions in the Zoom room at any time. Simply check in the private community to see if anyone’s around and wants to join you.
This may feel a bit scary at first but I PROMISE you these are amazing. Once you experience the productivity you’ll have in the coach-led sessions you’ll want to join more so you can feel less alone in your studies and get some serious shit done.
4. WEEKLY VIRTUAL STUDY SESSIONS
Three times a week, Becky and I will host virtual study sessions on Zoom where you’ll get to study alongside some of your kickbutt pals.
During each two-hour session we’ll study in focused intervals, with breaks in between to keep you feeling fresh. 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.
9. *BONUS* KICKBUTT STUDY CAMP 2.0 SEPTEMBER 24 (All Access Annual plans only)
Next September – a series of study skills workshops, resources and personalised, individual support to upskill you ready for your next academic year.
You can enrol knowing that not only are you going to make this academic year your best yet in the membership, you’ll have next year’s Camp booked in to guide you on the next stage to graduating with the grades you really want.
8. SUMMER STUDYING SUPPORT (July / August)
On top of all the usual support each month, you’ll have access to additional resources, guidance and accountability during the summer.
So whether your course continues into July and August, you’ve got resits to take, you want to use the time to catch up, get ahead, or even on work/personal projects – the KSC will continue to support you and help you stay accountable to your goals.
7. MINI-TRAININGS / RESOURCES
When you first join, you’ll get immediate access to the 3-step Progress Methods where you’ll learn my simple weekly planning and review process that will seriously skyrocket your productivity and results.
You’ll also access mini-trainings and resources to support you with essay writing, mindset and motivation.
10. *BONUS* WELCOME PACK OF GOODIES
That’s right, there’s KSC merch. When you enrol I’ll send a super awesome welcome pack of goodies to you in the post, wherever you are in the world!
I’m not a perfect student. I almost failed out of Sixth Form and I was told I wasn’t capable of studying at a university level. I’ve not had an easy breezy studying life but I *am* an epic learner and studying expert now because I worked hard and invested in learning how to learn.
I’ve been where you are. I studied as a mature student and distance learner, completing a degree while I worked full-time anddd tried to have a social life and hobbies.
I’ve worked with the largest university in the UK, the distance-learning specialist, The Open University. I’m a student ambassador and have taken part in their television and radio campaigns. I’ve delivered study skills workshops to their students and worked with their tutors to teach them how to better support their learners.
I’ve got over 7 years of experience supporting adult learners to study smarter to help them achieve *their* dream grades.
I’ve taught over 500 adults online so I know how to create engaging trainings that look nothing like your university’s dry virtual lectures.
A publisher contracted ME to write The Return to Study Handbook – the study skills bible for mature students, distance learners and those studying while working.
I’m a details gal. No vague advice here. In my trainings, I’ll literally tell you and show you, step-by-step, how to implement a study technique. I use examples and create epic resources so *all* learners can thrive.
I truly believe that anyone who is brave enough to return to education can graduate with their dream grades. I’ll support you to cultivate your confidence, habits and strategies so you can achieve higher marks with more ease in less study time.
I’m a really nice person. Working with me is not like working with a stern tutor who shames you for mistakes and makes you doubt yourself. I radiate warmth, positivity and optimism to all my students because learning is hard and I am not gonna make it harder.
I live and breathe this stuff. When I’m not supporting students or creating content about studying I’m reading about learning and thinking and talking about learning. I am a true life-long learner and I’m constantly pushing myself out of my comfort zone in all areas so I can pass my learnings and lessons onto you.

THREE times a week we run a two-hour virtual study session on Zoom where you can study alongside me and the rest of your kickbutt student pals.
The days and times change each week and the sessions are published two weeks in advance. There is 1-2 sessions on weekday evenings, 1 session weekday morning/afternoon and sometimes 1 on weekend mornings/afternoons. You'll also have 24/7 access to the Zoom room to study with the other members.
The 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. I’ll even record them so you can use them during your solo study sessions to help you stay focused and on track.
Here's what a typical session looks like:
19:00 > welcome, catch up, and we'll share our study tasks for the session
19:10 > focused study session 1 (microphones muted, cameras left on so we feel like we're studying together)
19:35 > break (stretch, take a bathroom break, grab a snack)
19:40 > study session 2
20:05 > break
20:10 > study session 3
20:35 > break
20:40 > study session4
21:05 > wrap-up, share wins + additional time for any study questions.
Nope. I don't need to be an expert in your subject-matter because I'm an expert in learning and study skills.
I am not a tutor who will teach you the content of your course. I am a study skills trainer 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 worked with students from every subject imaginable from undergraduate to postgraduate courses.
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.
Each week there are three 2-hour virtual study sessions you can join where you'll get SO MUCH MORE done than you would by yourself – so you'll actually save time.
You can ask questions in the private Circle community anytime and either Becky, our Community Coordinator, or I will respond 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 sessions and the monthly group coaching calls.
Please note that the membership does NOT include one-on-one calls or email support.
Enrolment for this intake closes 11:59pm Saturday 14th October. The next enrolment date is not yet set but this will be the last opportunity in 2023 to join.
While the Kickbutt Students Club is designed to support students studying any course or subject, I get that you may want to check whether it would work for your specific situation.
So if you have any questions or want to talk through your context, email me at email@example.com.
Alternatively, send me a DM over on Instagram @chloe.burroughs and we can chat there.
I truly believe that anyone who's brave enough to return to studying has all the resources they need to achieve their dream grades. The KSC is designed to empower you to truly believe this for yourself.
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.
They increase their grades by 10/20/30/40+%, they can take more evenings and weekends off, they start dreaming bigger in their career as their confidence soars...it's pretty incredible.
I hope you join us in The Kickbutt Students Club so you can experience this reality and I can support you on your studying journey too.
