My name is Oskar Cymerman. I am a husband, a father, and an educator.
I started Focus 2 Achieve to provide tools that empower educators and help students.
There are 3 things I love doing as a professional:
- Teaching: If you're going to do something, you might as well love it. I teach students and help teachers reinvent themselves via my blog, books, and workshops.
- Writing/Creating: I reflect in writing and create infographics. I blog 2-3 times per week and constantly work on a new book or two. I also make learning infographics I give away for free. Check them out by clicking on the products tab above. Leave the credit card info blank. Also, take a peek at my Amazon Author page.
- Talking: I talk to students, teachers, and leaders. My main goal is to inspire them to change the education so it is more accessible, beneficial, and fun for students. I am also contemplating teaching others about self-publishing.
My first book "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom," helps middle and high school students learn effectively using proven brain based strategies.
My follow up book "Crush School 2: 10 Study Secrets Every High Schooler Should Know," is a 42 page book any student can put in their backpack or purse and use whenever he or she needs a study tip or a way to do school better.
I regularly blog and appear on educational podcasts sharing ideas on 21st century teaching and learning and flexible learning environments.
