School Skills provides inspiration, motivation and fun, easy to learn academic success methods for students in junior high, high school and college grade levels. Professionals returning to school for additional education often find the School Skills tools helpful as well to restart their learning ‘engines’ after years away from academics. School Skills provides exciting classroom seminars, consulting, speaking, coaching, web publications and print publications which encourage student growth and success with academics. They are based in Portland, Oregon but their materials are used in places as far away as Kazakhstan. Started in 2009 by Chris Tobias, School Skills has grown to reach students all over the world. “Our mission” says Mr. Tobias “Is to free students from the school stress and busy work so that they can have fun learning. I really believe that learning how to learn is the best gift any student will ever receive.”
