I got the idea of creating Memorizing Made Easy after receiving emails from parents who purchased my first book, Comic Mnemonics for Spanish Verbs. They were looking for more parenting resources and loved how effective and easy mnemonics were. They were dying to find something to teach their kids how to use them in all classes.

Parental involvement in a child's education has always been important. Finding the right parenting resources to help is part of the process. Well, now parents may need to speed the process along.
The reason? It's possible that one or more of your child's teachers isn't qualified to be in the classroom.
This past Saturday, the Education Department decided to allow states to use unqualified teachers in core academic classes.
It seems like the right time to be talking about more parental involvement in education and that's just what Jim Sarris had in mind with his new program called Memorizing Made Easy (http://memorizing-made-easy.com).
Sarris, a high school Spanish teacher at Horace Greeley in Chappaqua, NY, has come out with a resource for parents that addresses one of the most important study skills children need: the ability to memorize quickly and easily.
It's called Memorizing Made Easy and is designed to help parents work side by side with their child to help them master important memory techniques.
"I got the idea of creating Memorizing Made Easy after receiving emails from parents who purchased my first book, Comic Mnemonics for Spanish Verbs. They were looking for more parenting resources and loved how effective and easy mnemonics were. They were dying to find something to teach their kids how to use them in all classes."
Sarris came up with a guidebook/DVD format (also available as a download) that walks parents and kids step-by-step through a series of mnemonics. With detailed explanations and examples, as well as action guides for parents and kids, Memorizing Made Easy makes it real simple for parents to spend quality time with their children while helping them master a skill that will last a lifetime.
"Unfortunately, schools don't have the time to teach memory training. Yet, it is one of the most important skills a child can master for success in school and beyond. And the sooner the better."
Thanks to the comments from parents, Sarris has made the program applicable to young learners as well as older ones. There are examples ranging from how to correct basic spelling to AP Biology.
"The key to any memory system is to learn how to use it so it can become a tool in a child's toolkit. Many kids use mnemonics from time to time but don't understand the difference between each technique and how to maximize its effectiveness."
With the concern over teacher quality growing, parental involvement in education matters now more than ever. Easy to use parenting resources make the task more enjoyable.
With Memorizing Made Easy, parents have a resource they can begin using today to give their child a skill that will affect their lives forever.
Sarris offers a free newsletter that offers tips and tricks to help your child memorize more easily. For more information, visit
