The Memory Master workshop

Excellent memory isn’t actually inborn. It’s a learnable skill. This one-time foundational workshop empowers you to achieve higher performance in a wide range of disciplines, including STEM subjects. Just $50, our lowest price ever.

This one-time foundational workshop costs $100 $50.

The benefits of being a memory master will last a lifetime.

Why?

Achieve extreme fluency

Why is memorization important?

Geniuses instinctively drive to achieve complete comfort with the material they’re studyingMemorization is the core of such fluency.

Most students do it wrong.

Many students rely on ineffective and outdated memorization tools. As a result, they work inefficiently, ineffectively, and ultimately unsuccessfully.

What does memory mastery feel like?

You can memorize anything you need to quickly, easily, and permanently. Maybe even more important: you also know what to memorize in order to achieve your best performance.

Our core

Spaced repetition (SR) is a recently-developed memorization technique based on validated neuroscience research. It uses specially-prepared flashcards presented over carefully-controlled intervals of time. 

So, flashcards?

With spaced repetition, a student learns more, faster, with less effort, and remembers for much longer (even permanently). This is a 10x improvement over traditional flash cards. Our program uses your choice of an app called Anki, or physical cards and commonly-available support materials.

What?

Use proven best practices

How?

Get personal expert help

Built for you

At the workshop, you and our memory coach Rora Brodwin will select and set up your SR platform. You will please come prepared with either index cards or the Anki desktop app (either of which we will help you set up from scratch). 

Learn the technique and the habits

You will learn the secrets of creating SR-compliant flashcards and how to develop your Daily Practice of memorization. It takes minutes, not hours. You will also learn how to track your progress. Results speak for themselves.

Your own coach

You’ll check in with your memory coach at future workshops to keep you 100% on track until you are running with your own legs. These checkins are included in the price of the workshop.

Frequently asked questions

How is the program structured?

First, we’ll briefly survey common memorization techniques and their shortcomings. Then we’ll learn about Spaced Repetition, the overall best method available.

We’ll examine some common avoidable pitfalls among SR novices, and help you see how to avoid them. Then we’ll select and set up an SR system with you, whether through an app (Anki) or physical index cards and other commonly-available support materials.

We’ll help you establish habits that will lead to enjoyment, and thereby success, in adopting this system.

Finally, we’ll run through the whole thing a few times with you so that you’ll leave confident, comfortable, and well on your way to a successful and sustainable memory practice.

What's included (and not)?

What’s included:

  • Our expertise and hands-on help getting you set up with an SR system (i.e. a modified flash card system) that works, that’s easy, and that you can continue to improve and expand.
  • Our guidance and coaching so that you form the necessary habits of using the system twice a day for compounding long-term benefits

What’s not included:

  • What you want to memorize, whether that’s ten formulas for an upcoming test, 3,000 new vocabulary words, or anything in between.
  • The cards themselves; you’ll have to buy either index cards or third-party software. We’ve vetted these options and will recommend the best path for you.
