The Luminous Mind Podcast | A show about you becoming your best self through unconventional thinking
In our special 200th Episode we get the privilege to hear from Hunter Maats, co-author of "The Straight-A Conspiracy: Your Secret Guide to Ending the Stress of School...and Totally Ruling the World" as well as co-host of the popular Mixed Mental Arts podcast. With his humorous rapport, Hunter gives us insight to his research for the book and a great discussion on what parents can do to help their children better succeed in their education.
Hunter founded Overqualified Tutoring, an educational services company which applied the latest neuroscience and psychology to help students of all ages succeed. As the company expanded, he and another of the company’s co-founders realized the transformative force they had created by introducing the science of learning directly to students. Along with Katie O'Brien, he synthesized seven different fields in neuroscience and psychology and thousands of hours of tutoring experience into a single book that would inspire readers to take charge of their educations. The Straight-A Conspiracy: Your Secret Guide to Ending the Stress of School...and Totally Ruling the World has received rave reviews from students, educators and parents alike and led Hunter and Katie to appear on dozens of TV and radio shows, including being reviewed by Wired and profiled by Amazon as an innovative author. More importantly, the book has become a staple in several schools, community colleges, and even prison systems in the U.S. and globally.
