Just a quick e-mail to say that you made a difference in my life today. I am going on four years in my role as coordinator of a learning support program at a community college. My path has been far from intentional and it is mostly serendipity that has brought me here. As I face moderate burn out and frustration with the politics and bureaucracy of higher education and also struggle with clarifying my career intentions from this point onward, I have to say that I came away from your website uplifted and inspired by the work you have done. I don’t mean the content per se, which I have posted to our website for our students’ benefit, but the behind-the-scenes material: information about your professional and personal work, your personal philosophy, your commitment to learning and community, your success in balancing and cross-pollinating your commitments to work and community, etc. I especially like the quote you posted by Nina Utne: "Basically, in my very flawed and human way, I want to be a force for love in the world. I want to let go of and grow beyond everything that constrains me from that intention" All of it came at a time when I am incubating and reflecting on next steps. So thank you for “putting yourself out there” and inspiring others along the way. 3/5

Love to receive email information on Reading Skills 3/23

I was researching SQ3R to give to a friend of mine. Your site popped up as #1 on Google.

I was stunned at the precision and utility of your site. I love the information you provide in one place. Amazed. ... I observe that you have a great life and really relish it. Love the Czech dolls and how to make them. Your philosophy about travel: you articulate well, how I have felt about it but haven't been able to put it into words. Anyway, you made my day. 3/28

thanks for your website, it's very interested and informative. I'll now have to actually use some of the techniques I've read about - especially to combat procrastination. 3/30

Also, I have fifteen years of experience in high school education, so if you need any help developing any guides, etc. (although I can't imagine what you haven't covered - the site is so comprehensive), please let me know. I will have time during the summer months to work on it. 4/3

I'm not really sure why I'm writing you....I'm lost. Your website, your quotes....your page seems so human... 4/3

Is there any way possible to get an entire copy of the study guide on the website. I was going to print it out but it would take decades to open each guide and each number listed in order to be able to use it as I study. 4/4

I have to say that I'm a bit excited after stumbling upon your website recently. The amount of value it contains is astronomical, I truly admire your work sir.

I am a graduate student at Vanderbilt University. We are conducting a research project with high school students to develop their study-skill/self determination skills. Would it be possible to use your online "daily planner/goal setting" tools? We would love to implement this as part of the lesson. If so could we receive a copy of the program since we do not always have web-access? 12/5
