Making learning simple

Think Savvy provides a simple, science-based study approach to help students learn at their best and develop into resilient, long-term learners


Are you a parent searching for ways to support your teenager through high school? Or, are you a teacher who wants to help your students learn more effectively?

I’m Christine West, a published author, parent and qualified teacher, who has been in your shoes and understands the challenges you face. 

It can be difficult helping teenagers to get the most from school, especially if they lack confidence, are not engaged or do not know how to study effectively. 

That’s why I founded Think Savvy, as a way to provide the knowledge and tools that students, parents and teachers need to get the most from learning.

There is a better way...

Think Savvy

My experience as a teacher and parent suggests that our kids struggle more than they need to – simply because they don’t know how to study.

The good news is that although learning takes effort, it is not rocket science.  Research suggests that there are mindsets we can develop, strategies we can apply, and tools we can use to help us all learn at our best.

The secret to becoming a successful learner is to work with your brain, not against it.  This is the Think Savvy approach.

When we teach our kids how to work with their brain, they can take in more information and feel more in control.  They develop the skills to become resilient, long-term learners.
