Mike is generously donating 5% of profit on all sales of his new course ‘Help Your Child to Learn’. This means that every time a parent decides to invest in their ability to give their children the best support possible by purchasing Mike’s course, Rafiki Thabo will be able to pay for 35 school meals to the poorest students at our link school in Uganda, or 2 days at secondary school for a child in Kenya. With every 24 course purchases, we can pay for a child to go to secondary school for a whole year! 


‘Help Your Child to Learn’ with Mike Gershon is the ultimate course for parents, giving mums and dads of 5-11 year-olds everything they need to support their children, to help them to grow and to help them to flourish. Mike Gershon has been running a successful business supporting schools and teachers for many years. As a former teacher himself, and a bestselling author of over 40 books on teaching, learning and education, Mike wanted to distil all his knowledge and wisdom about learning into a single, ready-to-use course for parents who want to give their children the best support possible.

Through a combination of full HD, TV-standard videos, beautifully designed practical guides and thoughtfully structured support materials, Help Your Child to Learn with Mike Gershon gives parents the confidence, skills and knowledge they need to support their child’s learning throughout primary school. Mike’s friendly, straightforward style makes it easy for parents to grasp key insights about the nature of learning and to make sense of how these connect to their own child’s development.

Having talked and worked with thousands of parents over the years, Mike knows that time is always an issue. That’s why he’s divided the course into ten self-contained sections, each focussing on a different aspect of learning. This means parents can dip in and out of the course as they wish, fitting it around their busy schedules.

Practicality is another key feature all parents look for, and Mike has taken this into account when designing and structuring the course. Packed with over 60 practical strategies and activities parents can use to support their child, the course presents a complete toolkit of techniques parents can use to have fun with their child, while also helping them to learn. This is one of the reasons why the course is a must-have for any parent looking to engage, entertain and enthuse their children during the school holidays, as well as in term time.

Parents who have already signed up for the course praise its ease of use, its simple yet insightful style, the wide range of practical ideas, as well as Mike’s friendly and knowledgeable manner. The transformation the course brings to parents isn’t a short-term fix, but a lifelong development of knowledge and understanding about the best and most enjoyable ways to support your child’s learning.
