How do you control another person, like your student? How do you not only make them show up with increased mental focus and preparation, but also make them go home and study? What stinks, like your classroom after sweaty recess fun, is the fact that your livelihood relies on this improbable premise:
Controlling your students learning. It’s hard enough to change yourself let alone help another to change.
You see them around you. Young men and women, boys and girls, suffering from the effects of the uncertain world in a way that children were never exposed to before:
- Environmental stress from a difficult home situation.
- Feelings of insecurity from an unstable family life.
- Changes beyond their family and school pressuring them to deal with issues they’re not prepared to face.
Even in schools, where we try to focus on education and personal growth, we see:
- Test anxiety
- Issues regarding social acceptance
- Pressure toward drug use or sexual activity
- Safety within the school
As teachers, you do not have control of the outside factors, what happens in students’ homes or what happens in the hallway, but you can provide students with tools to help them cope with in your classroom and, once mastered, in other environments.
How would you like to get the monkey off your back by lowering your students stress and thus having a greater chance of them improving their test scores and possibly their lives?
My Tap into Potential (TIP) program employs a safe, efficacious, and easily learned self-help method that you can use with the students in the classroom to help Reduce anxiety. Self-regulate , Decrease test anxiety and increase mental focus, preparation and here’s the kicker this technique can Generalize to other contexts of life
You see anxiety scrambles the brain and you can’t think straight let alone learn. Calm your mind and you can then access your frontal cortex, your logical part of the brain. If it sounds too simple it is and that’s why I love it.
What I’m doing is based in research principles that teachers are already employing: Self regulating -finding ways to calm oneself, coordinating the sides of the brain, pairing verbal negatives and positives, meta-cognition. However, the secret sauce is that it the Tip incorporates novel ingredient of acupressure – gentle tapping on ones body.

I want to help you get the monkey off your back by lowering your students’ stress and raise their test scores. I have designed a quick and easy student system using a self-regulation technique that IS proven to lower stress and anxiety and is one of the few successful treatments for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). EFT is one of these treatments. EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)is an evidence-based self regulating method that relieves stress and a variety of conditions. It combines techniques drawn from conventional methods such as pairing verbal negatives and positives, metacognition with the novel ingredient of acupressure. EFT is a safe, efficacious, and easily learned self-help method.
How amazing would it be if you could lower your students’ stress right before introducing new material and especially before a big test?
I know this sounds like pie in the sky, but it’s not. It’s science that is being used in mental health settings, hospitals, and in the success coaching industry.
In fact special education teachers and school occupational therapist already use similar tools with the students.
