Testimonials

We were referred to Dr. Rogers by Dr. Roby Marcou for support for our IB student, who has executive function issues, i.e.. challenges in getting organised.  As IB progressed and our daughter felt increased stress and anxiety, Dr. Rogers became more than an executive functions coach.  Our daughter went through a period of refusing to go to school and wanting to transfer out of her IB program.

Dr. Rogers provided a calm, experienced voice working with our daughter to get back on track, finish up her requirements and graduate on time from her IB program.

Had Dr. Rogers not been there providing support to our daughter (but not doing the work for her!), I honestly do not believe that our daughter would have graduated.

Dr. Rogers was always available, providing advice both for our daughter and us, including book recommendations to help us, as parents, gain a better understanding of what our daughter was going through and how best we could help.

Dr. Rogers also provided suggestions for what to do on a gap year, where our daughter is currently and thriving.

We are happy to recommend Dr. Rogers to any student with studying challenges or who needs an academic coach.  We are, and always will be,  very grateful that Dr. Rogers was available to support our daughter.

Very Grateful

Dr. Rogers was introduced to us by Dr. Marcou to help support our teenage ADHD child's executive functioning skills. However we, as a family, and our child got so much more than this from Dr. Rogers. She helped navigate some very tricky and unpleasant school situations including a transition, with the benefit of her years of experience. She was always on hand with a listening ear and practical advice.  Above and beyond anything she does to help with organisation and the practical side of schooling and learning she is a very warm empathetic human - both to the student and to the family. This small paragraph can never do justice to all she has meant to us.

Much more than a coach...

My wife and I were lost in trying to figure out how to navigate our childrens' schools, teachers, administration, and learning process until we starting seeing Dr. Rogers. Dr. Rogers is helping us learn how to best communicate with schools (specifically, the language to use and not use!) so that our wishes are heard. She is also helping us understand the complicated (to us anyway!) pathways that our high school children are navigating so that we can support them in planning ahead and knowing what to expect in their learning journey (both my wife and I were educated in a different system than our children are in). Most significantly, however, she is coaching us, through a Strength-based coaching model, which is helping us make generative decisions about how to be our best selves and meet our goals. She played an instrumental role in helping our senior think through the complicated process of shotlisting universities that align with her strengths and are an optimal fit for her academic interest. My children connect, respect and really looking forward to seeing Dr. Rogers. As a former international school student and teacher, they felt like they had a lot more in common with her than with their parents--understandably! Dr. Rogers' ability to connect quickly and establish rapport is exceptional. It's not an over-exaggeration to say that we all feel a lot more functional and confident because of the coaching, consulting and wise counsel we are receiving from Dr. Rogers. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Dr. Rogers--Our Beacon

I entered Dr. Rogers' course thinking I would learn a few useful tips and tricks. While my original method of working late nights was sufficient enough to pull me through semester one, I felt I had room for improvement. Instead, what I took away from the session was a radically different view, not only based on speculation but proven through successful trials and analyses. Her lessons gave me insight into how we could use the brain to learn faster and easier, the ability to organize the little portions of time into an hour of solid work, and the skills I needed to prepare for any upcoming test. After coaching from Dr. Rogers and applying the new set of skills learnt, I was able to comfortably manage my time while playing sports at a high-intensity level (2-3 hours a day) and still maintain a GPA of above 3.85 for the next semester. Looking back, I cannot believe how much I have grown in such a short amount of time, and my deepest thanks go out to Dr. Rogers.

Once drowning in work, now swimming in style.

Our son started working with Dr. Rogers four months ago; back then we had a child who didn’t want to go to school, had erratic grades of 3’s, 4’s, 5’s and an occasional 6 (IB) and he could not organise himself or any of his school work. With reluctance and skepticism, he attended the Champion Study Skills Seminar. This was an evident turning point for him where he gained confidence and hope from the new skills he learned. Over the next few months, he started to mature more in his schooling by applying the skills and strategies that were continually reinforced and developed in his coaching sessions. As Dr. Rogers got to know and understand him more, we could clearly see bonds emerging, and in turn his trust and a huge respect for her developed. Her guidance and mentoring for our son at a really difficult time in his life was in no doubt the reason why he gained confidence, hope, skills and motivation to turn the school semester around and end the year with mostly 6’s and 7’s, achieve Honour Roll and be recognised with a “Rising Star Award” for significant academic improvement!

 

As a parent, the support, guidance and coaching I personally received was equally important. Having a child with some challenges can at times be a very lonely road, but with Vicki I knew I had back up. From navigating educational psychologist reports, to accommodation plans, to challenging teachers, to behavioural issues, to just needing a cry, Vicki was there for us and provided exceptional support. I honestly cannot say enough about how amazing she has been and how utterly grateful we are for the exceptional gift she has in relating to our kids. We want to take her with us when we leave Singapore!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you Vicki!!!!

Utterly grateful.

My daughter has always been a “good student”, but I could see her stress and anxiety increasing as she started high school. I wanted to help but didn’t know where to start. I had never been taught study skills in school! I have noticed a big difference in my daughter’s study habits since she took Dr. Rogers’, “Crack Your Learning Code: Death of the All Nighter” seminar and started seeing her regularly!  She really looks up her and I can totally see why!!

Recognizing the importance of study skills.

We have our family back. We have repaired our relationship with our children and with each other through having established some very important (and long overdue) boundaries, schedules and expectations. Dr. Rogers is an excellent parent coach and teacher. Her strength-based approach has given us our confidence back and helped us see what we each contribute to our family unit. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Dr. Rogers!

-The Baring Family

Back and better than ever.

We arrived in the Champion studio in trouble. My wife and I knew that we needed support in finding a co-parenting platform to guide our children (we have 5!). Through our weekly sessions with Dr. Rogers, we have gained a newfound appreciation for our parenting journey and learned how we can both contribute in generative and collaborative ways. Dr. Rogers gives us tasks and “parenting homework” to complete between many of our sessions, which help us to focus on developing specific parenting skills. Our kids see the difference, but more importantly, we are a happier and more cohesive family than ever. Dr. Rogers, thank you ever so much!

-Team Tanner

Finally on the same page...

My grades have never been better since I started to see Dr. Rogers. She has taught me how to manage my time and prioritize my days in ways that MAKE SENSE TO ME. Also, the study and test taking skills she has taught me are more useful than I could ever imagine. I just got my final grades back for the first semester and psyched because I made the scholars' list, which means I have a GPA higher than 3.7! I couldn't have done it without Dr. Rogers’ support…for sure!

Transformed

Vicki is definitely one of the best coaches with the most marvellous personalities I've ever met. The IB results of my son would not be the same without the tremendous effort and outstanding support from Vicki. From the first meeting (and the many that followed), Vicki was fully committed and able to establish an outstanding relationship with my son on many different emotional levels. Impressively, she managed to do this within an extremely short period of time! Vicki provided the perfect balance of guidance, coaching, academic support, and “kick in the pants” right when my son needed it the most. Her close communication loop with us as the parents helped us all work together as a team in support of my son and his exam preparation. What is really remarkable was her seemingly endless 24/7 availability, and her non-stop effort and energy in helping my son overcome some crisis situations during his “coaching journey”. We really feel privileged that Vicki took our son under her wings. We are truly thankful for her in our lives.

Kick in the pants!

Spending a Saturday in a study skills seminar was not my idea of fun or relaxing. And then I met Dr. Rogers. SHE IS FUN! I spent 6 hours listening to her tell stories that related directly to the science behind learning, and learning study tools that I needed to help me in school. I’ve been studying ALL WRONG! Best 6 hour investment of my academic career, and just in time for exams. And yes, I apologised to my parents for giving them so much grief for signing me up. ps: She baked cookies for us as one of our many snacks. Who does that?!

Eating my words...

Both my son and daughter attended Dr. Rogers’ “Crack Your Learning Code: Death of the All Nigher!” student seminar and came away with heaps of ideas and resources that they were able to put to use right away in all of their subjects at school. The best part for me as a parent was hearing them talk about WHY certain study techniques were more effective than others, and really start to understand the science behind their learning. They also now share a common learning language and check on each other to make sure they are using the right tools for the task and not falling back into hold habits. This seminar should be a mandatory perquisite for all middle schoolers and high schoolers. I can only image how much more I would have enjoyed my learning journey if I knew what my kids now know about learning!

Re-thinking my learning journey

My son is in the IB system and at a critical juncture in his schooling. We needed some study skills and time management ideas STAT to get him through his mocks. As a seasoned teacher, I thought I would be able to help him through this difficult time, but I wasn’t confident in my own ability to teach him effective study techniques. Truth be told, I wasn’t taught this in my teacher training and am not exposed to this in any of the professional training I have been involved in. Dr. Rogers was able to make sense of the science behind learning and teach my son how to study. He came out of her seminar with a great sense of relief having finally learned how to learn. I am definitely going to be using some of the things he learned with my students. The challenge will be to unlearn the many ineffective study habits that my son has taught himself over the years, and to use what he learned in seminar to guide his learning moving forward. I see him more motivated than I have in a long time!

More motivated than ever!

I’ve been working with Dr. Rogers via weekly Skype sessions. We meet and talk about the challenges I’m facing being away from home (my family still lives in Asia; I’m going to college in the States), and being a TCK. Because she went through the exact same experience, I feel like I can relate to her and trust her advice. Plus, she’s really easy to talk to. I tell her things I don’t tell other people. Dr. Rogers has also help guide my course selection and goal setting. We use a lot of strengths language in our conversations. I love it. My parents often say they wish they had an academic life coach when they were in college. I’m in the middle of applying for a summer internship position and will be working on interview strategies and techniques with Dr. Rogers. Thank you, Dr. Rogers for all of your academic and life advice!

Dr. Rogers is well-positioned as a partner of parents and teachers to find an approach that works best for students who may be struggling in school. Her education expertise is put to use as she navigates my son’s school to make sure we are using available resources effectively.  She has worked wonders with my son, earning his trust and providing much-needed structure, new habits, and skills.  They have honest and deep conversations, not all of which I am privy to. I appreciate this as I'd like my son to feel safe and comfortable talking about where he has issues.  I am starting to see his initiative, self-advocacy and self-esteem flourish.

R.A.

Concerned mother of Middle School student

I was making terrible academic choices and social choices for the first couple of years in high school. Before Dr. Rogers starting working with me, I was honestly really depressed and stressed about….everything. I sort of quit on school, on my family, and on myself. Dr. Rogers helped me uncover my strengths and refocus my attention on what I was good at. It was refreshing to hear that I didn’t suck at everything! But she also held me accountable to my learning and taught me important study skills that I knew nothing about. I’m now fighting to get my GPA up before I graduate so I can go to the college that I want to. I’m thankful I found (well, my parents found) Dr. Rogers when they did so I had time to see what I was doing to myself and my future, AND have time to turn it around!

Jennifer L.

Junior in High School

When I met Dr. Rogers, I was a mess. My lifestyle habits were horrible and my study skills were non-existent. Dr. Rogers taught me the skills that I wish I had learned from my teachers years ago. I feel like I have wasted so much time trying to figure out ways to learn better and get my grades up. Who knew study skills was actually a thing?! I’m not the same student this year as I was in 9th grade--thank GOD!

Ryan C.

Sophomore in High School

Dr. Rogers is my personal high school hacker!! She is teaching me very specific (and USEFUL) strategies on how to be more productive when I’m in class listening to class lectures, and when I’m studying. I have had to unlearn some really bad habits and that has been hard..really hard. I also had terrible time management and absolutely no sense of organization. My diet sucked and my sleep habits were non-existent. Dr. Rogers helped me understand the science behind diet, nutrition, sleep and brain function. Dr. Rogers is tough with me when I need it. She holds me to very high standards, much higher than I had for myself. I’m working on my self-esteem and confidence. My grades are getting better, I don’t need as much extra tutoring as I did in the past. I actually feel GOOD about school for the first time...maybe ever. The only thing I would change is the timing that I met Dr. Rogers. I wonder how much more confident I would be if I had her as my coach throughout high school.

Joseph A.

Senior in High School

I’ve known Dr. Rogers for several years. All 3 of our children had Dr. Rogers as a teacher and now a coach. We have seen first-hand her drive and passion for helping students succeed and live meaningful and purposeful lives! All 3 of my children are very, very different, and yet Dr. Rogers was able to personalize her coaching to each of their individual and unique areas of need. She not only knows her stuff but is living it through Champion. Best of all, I don’t have to be the “task manager” of my children anymore!

Lexi L.

Parent of 3 very opinionated and hormonal teenagers

Your study tips have given me so much insight into high school that I wouldn’t have known before. Thank you for your time and effort...and most of all, TIPS! They have changed my high school experience already and are going to set me up to succeed in college.

Justin O.

Freshman in High School

Dr. Rogers taught me different techniques to learn and remember information better. She helped me understand how my brain worked (not at all like I thought!) and how to choose appropriate study techniques for each subject that helped my brain remember what I was taught more easily.  I didn’t even know these “tricks” existed! Now studying feels so much more manageable (and a lot less boring!). I used to feel very discouraged about school but now I feel a lot more successful!

John M.

Middle School Student

With three children ages 9-16, and experience across private and public schools in the US, Dr. Rogers is one of the most impressive educators we have ever met. When our oldest son was struggling right before midterm exams, we engaged Dr. Rogers as his coach.  Within weeks she was able to help him improve his motivation and study habits, as well as his grades.


Dr. Rogers is direct and firm, but also a great listener and a kind human being who takes a personal interest in her students that extends well beyond academics. Her approach is holistic and she spends a lot of time getting to know your child as a person, understanding his/her motivations, social pressures, and how these affect the focus and academic success of a student.


As our middle child enters high school, we are also planning to hire Dr. Rogers as his coach.  We have found no one remotely like her in Singapore (or in the US for that matter) and strongly recommend Dr. Rogers to help your child realize his/her full personal and academic potential.

M.D

Parents of a few fun loving, fantastic, full-on teenage boys!

I was on academic probation when I met Dr. Rogers. The Dean made it clear that I needed to get my act together this semester or was going to be dismissed. I was scared and angry. I knew that I had some habits that were responsible for my grades, but I was also putting in more effort than people believed and that made me mad. Dr. Rogers helped me sort out my bad habits, learn better ones, and most importantly taught me how to learn. She also made it clear that she wasn't going to keep me on if I wasn't ready to commit to the changes she was coaching me through. Well, I committed, and I learned, and I'm no longer on academic probation! I'm actually starting to enjoy my major because things are starting to make sense and the learning doesn't seem so hard or boring anymore! Dr. Rogers is the most important Skype relationship I have!
