Nothing beats that smile on results day…

… seeing them achieve what they’re truly capable of.

Knowing they’re set to take on the world.

But the path to exam success can be tough, even for the brightest students.

Long hours. Lost sleep.

Motivation slipping. Stress levels creeping up.

Whether they’re at school, college or university, my job is to help your son or daughter find a happier path to success.

I can’t promise to make exams easy…

…but you can absolutely make the journey far, far easier

Man in graduation cap

There’s a new science of how to study smart:

  • Get more done in less time
  • Learn faster, remember for longer
  • Score higher marks on exam day

When your child knows the strategies, they can breathe calmer, knowing they’re going to ace those exams without working crazy-hard.

I can almost feel the weight lifting from those shoulders already – yours and theirs! 🙂

“It’s a truly unusual combination of skills which enables William to get the best out of young adults. Everyone seems amazed by how much he’s transformed. His teachers said he’s gone from a D grade to an A grade after working with you over the holidays. So really, thank you!”

Claire, parent

“Incredible. Absolutely brilliant, couldn’t recommend William enough. [My son] loved working with him. In hindsight we should have got him on board much sooner”

Barbara, parent

Meet your child’s new study mentor: William Wadsworth

I empower high-potential students to find an easier path to exam success, by translating brain-science into highly practical strategies (that really work), and guiding them to success with heart and understanding:

  • I know the science: I’m a Cambridge University trained psychologist, and active learning science researcher.
  • I know what it takes: I wasn’t always a top achiever, but once I figured out how to apply the science, I got top 0.01% UK exam results at high school (10A* at GCSE, 6 grade A at A-level), and graduated from Cambridge in the top 10% of my class, with a First Class degree.
  • I hear you: I know it can be tough. My approach has been refined and battle-tested for nearly 15 years, first on myself, then through helping generations of students ace their exams.

Between this blog and the Exam Study Expert podcast, I have the honour of guiding nearly half a million students to exam success, every year.
