I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, EdTech, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of the Crush School Series of Books, which help students understand how their brains process information and learn. I also wrote The Power of Three: How to Simplify Your Life to Amplify Your Personal and Professional Success, but be warned that it's meant for adults who want to thrive and are comfortable with four letter words.

Hey! I'm Oskar. I create educational resources for teachers, parents, and teens.

I'm a teacher, writer, and learning and success coach.

I help students and adults learn how to learn smarter and faster, improve memory, and increase personal and professional success. I write and speak about brain-based learning methods and mindset not commonly taught in schools. 

What others say

Kelly, a CEO, writes on Amazon:

The author's style reminds me of Malcolm Gladwell in that he combines a little science, a little wit and lot of his own brilliant mind to create a book that turns the seemingly obvious, but surprisingly difficult into the totally understandable.

Jon Harper, a podcast host, says:

Much like Don Quixote, Oskar is a mad dreamer who sees things that the rest of us do not. Oskar has a way of making things that are complicated, seem simple. You will still have to do the work. It’s just that he has already done a lot of the thinking for you.

Christine D. Israel, a parent and teacher, writes in her review of Crush School:

Speaks right to teens. Thank you for saying everything I've been trying to tell my son in a language he understands! Easy to read and understand. Short and to the point. Great for the short attention span of teens/millennials.


There are 2 types of people - those who leave their kid's futures in the hands of schools and those who realize that to be successful their kids need to acquire skills that prepare them for anything the future throws at them.

I aim to write books that help people acquire transferable skills - learning new information and skills quickly and effectively, communication and presentation skills that help individuals stand out, critical thinking, creative problem solving, smart failure, innovation, entrepreneurship, focus, and productivity.

I use humor and write in a conversational, sometimes controversial style. I'm not sure if my books are for you but you can click here to see for yourself.

Speaking / Professional Development

If you appreciate real talk and learning by doing, I am your guy.

I specialize in teaching others how to learn effectively and efficiently.

I deliver professional workshop-style learning to educators and organizations that cover accelerated learning techniques and school success strategies that are common sense but uncommon in today's classrooms.

Just imagine people in your organization making more deliberate and thoughtful decisions on how to approach work, problem-solving, and professional growth.
