“I wanted to thank you for the speed reading workshop. I believe this was one of our most successful programs and the students who attended were very grateful for the skills they received.”
-Hannah Baker, Director, Graduate & Professional Student Association
Florida Atlantic University

“It was a great learning session – I absorbed a lot of information within a very short period of time. My reading speed increased significantly while retaining the same comprehension. Very helpful as a 1st year MBA student because of the intensive amounts of reading required.”
-David T., MBA Student
Georgetown University MBA Program

“I took the Speed Reading and Memory workshop with Alex Nowak at Cal State University – Northridge in April 2019. This course was a life saver for me! I’m a graduate student and I work full time as a Cultural Resources Specialist – both demand a lot of reading and research from me. The Speed Reading course was incredibly helpful, every aspect of it! Before taking this course, I never thought of strategies for reading, never thought that reading fast requires training like everything else in life. At the beginning of the course we tested our reading speed and I scored below average. Just after 1 session I improved approximately 40%! My favorite exercise is the Speed Drill where you read at 400 wpm (words per minute) or faster. I use this everyday and have become a much more efficient researcher. I used to associate my slow reading to English being my second language, but now I know that all I needed was to have strategies and practice! The IRIS reading method has significantly contributed to my academic and professional success. Thank you!”
