Each newsletter features an exciting topic, an easy to understand research product book recommendations, and tips on how to shape an intellectual baby, toddler, and child.


As I gathered information and researched, I concluded that every child needs a diverse set of learning skills before attending school.

They need to see the world conceptually and draw meaning from every experience, whether it's a field trip, imaginary adventure through play, or unfamiliar words. In other words, children need a critical foundation to know how to "learn" and use this conceptual foundation to form background knowledge.

As my first lesson, I discovered that the capacity to learn comes well before teaching. Thus, I wanted to know more about how children learn and how I can help my children perceive this very complicated world.

I discovered that language development and my children's ability to organize and understand its elements was critical. I also recognized that learning occurs at every stage from birth to toddler to child.  Moreover, at each step, children develop a set of skills to organize, study, abstract, and communicate new learnings through language.  

This company is the outcome of my journey with three children at each learning stage. Since my oldest child was struggling to hear and in turn, could not read, I decided to homeschool all three of my children.

Through language development and a big-picture approach, we took on the world of books and knowledge acquisition. We also took a step back from traditional schooling and began to discover learning in a more significant systematic way at home.  We used the patterns within our language system to untangle complex lessons and devise big picture thinking.

To tackle complex tasks together, my children and I created learning solutions using the mega-learning skills, Organize, Study, Abstract, and Communicate or (OSAC skills). This method allowed us to to think critically, problem-solve, and develop new ideas.

Stay tuned for future publications based on our work. In the meantime, please navigate the site to find my Thought Papers, blogs, and newsletters for solutions you can use right away.  Most importantly, please visit The Intellectual Bookshop to continue our tradition of lifelong learning through books.

No matter the learning stage, mega-learning skills can deepen a student's capacity to comprehend.
