Some time ago business coach and busy mum Yasmin Voragee asked the question

“What do you actually do?”

I decided to post my answer here as it is a question I receive many times each week.
“I make it easy for you to achieve the success you want in your life, education, sport or business in a calm, relaxed and peaceful way that eliminates the challenges and difficulties that have blocked you up to this point”
This is immediately followed by another question
“ What can you do for me? “
I answer
“I find the root causes both visible and those buried underneath years of stress abs struggle and using the simplest way possible I help you to eliminate the root problems and then the symptoms disappear. “
The next question is often more personal like
“ what can you do for me? I’m stressed out all the time, never seem to have enough time in the day……. “
I answer
“ By calming your body, resetting your mind and refocusing your priorities we can get you functioning in a calm, relaxed and mindful peace-filled way in a session. With a few sessions you will be able to spot when you are going into overdrive and take the steps to relax before it becomes too late”
Or they may ask
“ my daughter or son is doing exams this year and hasn’t got down to study yet, can’t concentrate, has a poor memory or has such poor reading abs writing that we worry they will not do as well as they are capable of”
I reply
“ I work with students if all ages and abilities from top A students to those receiving resource or learning support to make Learning, Concentration, Memory, Reading, Maths, Spelling and Handwriting easier, clearer and more efficient. In this way I help students to overcome their limitations and achieve the success they are capable of and often far more than anyone expected of them! “

You will be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to achieve the goals that you set and the safe, comfortable and highly effective and efficient ways that I use to make you feel relaxed, confident, calm and competent.

What BIG Factors Affect Student Exam Results?

What BIG Factors Affect Student Exam Results?

Right or wriing, due to the current patterns followed by the global education system, examinations are considered to be the best way to determine students’ progress, growth, and academic performance.

The verbal, written, or electronic exams conducted throughout the educational system, and assessments through the year are thought of as a means of measuring a student’s actual performance and gauging their ability to achieve based on a variety of predetermined objectives.  While this may be true for some students,  for others it simply points to their inability to cope in exam situations and as a result they do not score well so the exam does not reflect their levels of skill, knowledge or understanding.

Not every student performs at in the same way in examinations. There are up’s and downs in the results that are manipulated and normed each year administrators and can lift or drop a student’s score by a few percentage points. This is a good reason to add a few extra hours of study to the preparation for exams and to practice taking exams so that all “gun shy” students are ready for the exam both educationally and psychologically.


There are certain factors that influence and affect each student’s performance and concentration in exams. These factors are divided into four basic categories. They fall into 4 categories

·         Intrinsic Factors

·         Extrinsic Factors

·         Miscellaneous Factors

·         Personal Factors

Intrinsic Factors

The intrinsic factors that affect a student’s ability to concentrate and perform well during their examinations are largely concerned with the examination itself and the way it is conducted. These also include strict and consistent marking by the teachers and instructors. Another factor can be the varying patterns and sequences of the exam papers which may significantly contribute to a lower score in  some examinations. The question style and material the questions are based on may also influence the students’ results.

Extrinsic Factors

The factors that pertain to the environment in which the examination is conducted are considered as Extrinsic Factors. These may include but are not limited to the noise distractions within and outside the examination hall, the distance or lack of between students in the exam hall, along with the light, temperature and ventilation of the examination hall. These can affect the students’ results in their exams. Moreover, the attitude and behavior of the fellow students as well as the invigilation staff may also influence how the students fare concentration-wise during the exam. Many distractions or interruptions can directly impact the students’ results.  

Miscellaneous Factors

A student’s concentration is also challenged by various completely unrelated factors that include studying the incorret or only part of the course material and their approach to pre-exam practice sessions. The delivery of the lectures pertaining to the exam itself also has the capacity to affect a student’s concentration during the preparatory phase of the exam. Sadly for some the possibility of a severe fear or phobia of appearing in the run up to exams also tends to affect the outcome and overall performance of a student.

Personal Factors

Some personal factors also have the ability to influence the levels of a student’s concentration during exam study. The factors such as emotional turmoil due to family or other relationship issues, lack of sleep, overall work and school stresses,  as well as any  personality disorders may  all affect the outcome of a student’s exam. Their personal attitude and behavior, presence or absence of confidence also affects their exam concentration and performance. Another factor that potentially influences a student’s ability to perform to their maximum potential during the exam season is the possible existence of a mild, moderate or even previously undiagnosed learning disability or disorder.

While some of the above mentioned factors can be tackled by school and student themselves some are completely out of their control. There are others still that need to be addressed through outside assistance.

For ways to help a student to concectrate more effectively, efficiently so that they can settle down, study, understand and remember what they are reading you might consider the one and two day courses on offer this March and April.

On Saturday, March 11th in Dublin the Concentration Boot Camp will help struggling student to switch on their concentration, learn and recall more easily and give them a much stronger chance to succeed in displaying their true potential in their exams.

During the Easter holidays, we have a two day course SMARTER CONCENTRATION MADE EASY that goes deeper into concentration and helps the student through a structured pattern of to take full control over their wandering attention and focus fully on what they wish to study.

My Struggle to Learn

I’m Padraig King and i have been helping students ace their exams for more years than you have been around. I was a struggling student once with un-diagnosed dyslexia, very slow reading speeds and atrocious spelling. My handwriting was so poor that when I did exams I usually scored well below the score i would have got if they could have read my writing. I struggled all the way through primary school, secondary school and even in 3rd level. .

My Biggest Problem

The biggest problem that I had in secondary school  was that i was always getting distracted. I could not stay focused and it cost me dearly in some early exams where i could see kids who were not as intelligent as i was scoring marks much higher than i was awarded. some of this was due to the fact that the teachers had such difficulty reading my scrawly handwriting but the biggest part was that i could not stay on task long enough to join up the information i was taking in . as a result it was a jumble of facts and i had not been able to fit them together to make thw jigsaw that gave other a clear picture of the subjects and allowed them to answer questions with that advantage. I was still struggling to place the pieces together while they were moving on to the next subject.


Around the age of 14 I made a breakthrough and cracked the code of concentration. I discovered that by doing specific activities I could significantly improve my concentration. These simple activities made a big improvement in my scores and so i began tyhe quest for better and stronger ways to deal with my distractability.  Every time I found a newer, betrer way to do the activities I found my concentration grew. \I knew then as i know now that the key to concentration lies in activating the “right” parts of  your brain to make concentration possible. Later |I studied to be teacher, and then a l\earning support teacher and to prove to myself and the rest of the world that I was really focused and able to concentrate deeply I studied for and obtained a Masters from the Open University in the field of Education.

Concentration Solutions for You

With a lifetime of knowing what it feels like to be distracted, anxious and appearing to others as under-performing. I understand concentration like few others as i have been studying it for so long as have helped thousands of people to take control over their distractions,. calm down their minds and focus their attention like never before.

With my own skills and breakthrough in understanding and self control along with training I received in seven areas of study I developed a program that delivers 90 minutes of pure focus when and where you need it.  Later I developed online courses and workshops and other courses that employ many of the strategies i use successfully every day with my clients. Due to distances involved many of my clients are only accessing my services online and  I use Facetime, Skype, Zoom,  and a wide range of messaging apps to teach them how to calm down, settle in and make concentration and study possible for them. We stay in contact  by Whatsapp and email in between calls and they enjoy my support for as long as they need it.

SMARTER Focus Delivers Smarter Results

SMARTER Focus Delivers Smarter Results

The SMARTER Focus course  is for you, your family, friends and colleagues. This course is brand new but built from tried and tested techniques and activities that have helped thousands to achieve success that was beyond their reach without my help.

For many years I was a school teacher and the biggest challenge that I helped my students to deal with was their lack of concentration. I noticed that many teachers were focused on their subjects and did not have ways or techniques to help students to learn to concentrate . They brought the horse to water, offered water and became very frustrated when the student could not apply themselves to drink in the information. When I transitioned to being a full time Educational Kinesiology and Brain Gym consultant I found that not only students needed help to master their concentration but people I’d all ages and from all walks of life.

With over 30 years experience as a professional in switching on concentration and a lifetime of personal experience in mastering my own wandering mind I have been privileged to help thousands of children, teens and adults to switch on and grow their concentration and achieve successes that were otherwise left beyond their reach.

Now I have been persuaded to teach some of this in a two day course that could help you to

  • Calm your body enough to be ready to concentrate deeply
  • Still your mind so that it can bring lasr sharp attention to the desired task
  • Grow your own natural ability for concentration from a few seconds to minutes during the course and much for longer thereafter with a little practice
  • Give you the tools to keep extending your concentration so that it serves you on education, sports, business and your day to day living.

In the course you will learn

  • Why distractions have stopped you from concentrating
  • How to overcome these distractions quickly and easily
  • How to prepare your body and mind for longer periods of concentration than ever before
  • How to check others and yourself for “readiness to concentrate”
  • How to “switch on” those areas of your brain and body that facilitate you to develop and sharpen your concentration
  • How to quickly, easily and happily concentrate for as long as you need to achieve the success that has previously been denied to you
  • How to set the kind of immediate goals that deliver success every time – SMARTER Goals

SMARTER Goals deliver SMARTER Concentration the easy way

When you want to focus all of your attention on a task then it really helps to set a specific short term goal that will get every cell of your brain and body working with you to achieve this. I have devised a simple way to do this . The goal must be


When you can convince your conscious and subconscious minds that a particular task is worth doing for a short sprint then you can engage the full energetic participation of every cell in your brain and body. Old fears, worries and negative thought patterns can be put aside temporarily as you sprint through the task with your eyes firmly fixed on the Reward ( what ever you choose that to be- a 5 minute walk or whatever)

The course is presents real and verifiable solutions to a number of basic difficulties or obstacles that have limited your concentration. As we eliminate the obstacles one by one your vision, hearing and other senses can be focused on the single task that is to be done rather than noticing every distraction and so we grow your ability to concentrate .

As a child I was prone to being easily distracted but somehow I learned the importance of concentration and have spent a lifetime learning to master my ability to concentrate. I investigated a wide variety of training and some were more useful than others. My own adaptation of these techniques this has helped me to pull together quick, effective physical approach that I am sharing with you in this two day course. The physical approach and effective techniques that I am showing you are drawn from kinesiology, educational kinesiology , Brain Gym(r), NLP, the Silva Method of Mind Control, the Power of Positive Thinking and so many others that I have studied which helped to shape me into the specialist in concentration and focus that I have become.

If you or a family member, a friend or colleague could do with better concentration then this course will give you and them a straight path to deeper concentration than ever before.

We offer a special rate for two attending together as I know from past experience that when two or more from and area it a family do a course they can support each other locally and practice and remind each other. We go further and offer a deeper discount for 3, 4, 5 and more booking as a group.

This course will be offered in 4 venues in Ireland this year – Dublin, Cork, Galway and Derry. After that it will be taken abroad to meet the needs of those who truly value concentration.

100% Guarantee

WE take all risk out by offering you a 100% money back guarantee. We invite you to take the course and if you do not improve your concentration then we will give you your money back !

If you know of someone who might benefit from hearing about this course then please pass this information to them and suggest that they check out for themselves .

Finally as this course is not being offered again in your area we suggest you book one or more of the limited places before Feb 1st when the Early Bird Booking Rates expire.

Looking forward to helping you and yours switch on and grow your concentration beyond your wildest dreams! Everyone over with a genuine desire to learn to concentrate is welcome to attend.
