About The Author
I am Dennis Stemmle, college professor, bestselling author, parent of a college student, and founder of College Success Academy.
As a college professor, I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly, when it comes to student performance. I never knew how big our education problem was until my son became one of those dreaded statistics mentioned earlier. As a top-performing high school student, he got into all his desired colleges, and we just never were worried about him performing well.
However, his excitement from his college acceptances, the prospects of moving out of the house, and his embracing his independence, quickly led to frustration, stress, and surprise struggles. After his first semester, our straight-A high school student found himself on academic probation. That's when I knew I had to figure out why millions of top high school seniors struggle to succeed in college.
I spent months talking to students, looking for similarities, trends, and kernels of knowledge that could help me understand the challenges and issues faced by students transiting from high school to college. I evaluated all the challenges and struggles faced by these students and realized that time management was a common underpinning.
My son used this information in this book to go from academic probation to Dean's List the very next semester (3.9 GPA). I knew I was on to something and I needed to share this knowledge with as many incoming college freshmen as possible.
As a result, Time Management Secrets for College Students was born. Inside the pages of this book, are valuable insights for students to learn how to schedule their time efficiently, how to stop procrastinating, and how to manage their studies, work, and their personal life.
"As a student-athlete, this book is my new bible Super helpful to not just student-athletes but every college student. Great read " -Jessica Fyock, a student at West Chester University.
