Hello and welcome to The Study Well!

My name is Seán Lally and I created this site to help you learn how to learn so that you can study well!

Over the past 20 years it has become glaringly obvious to me that while there is no shortage of WHAT to learn, we are rarely taught HOW!

Learning is a combination of two very important elements – understanding and remembering. Most students, of any age, struggle to master these two aspects. It is my objective, through blog posts, videos and seminars (for both parents and students) to help people understand how they can be optimised.

Our understanding of the functioning of the brain has improved dramatically over the past century, but this is not reflected in how we study. It is our aim to address this vital gap in the education system.

By explaining how the brain works, how we optimise our understanding and recall of information, studying new material becomes less daunting and this is reflected by the hundreds of students who have worked with The Study Well and dramatically improved both their exam results and their relationship with studying.

Take care and study well!

What Our Students Say

“Great talk last night Seán. It’s obvious you are passionate about teaching students (of ALL ages) how to study. My son and daughter will be attending your seminar next weekend. I’ve no doubt this will be a game changer for them. Thankful parent, Greg “

“Thank you Seán, so so much. This is exactly what I was missing. I’ve never felt so calm about exams and I finally feel like things are sticking when I study! More people need to meet with and listen to you! Thank you again. Amy
