Focus 2 Achieve

Innovate Create Educate

I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom" which is a book that helps students understand how their brain processes information and learns. In the book, I explain why students can learn anything and give strategies on how to learn effectively.


Welcome! My name is Oskar Cymerman. I innovate. I create. I educate. I started Focus 2 Achieve to provide iclassroom tools that empower teachers and help students achieve more success. In my first life, I am a husband, a father, and a teacher. In my second life, I spend time discovering what "really works" in education, problem-solving, and creating products for teachers and students. 

I also provide consulting services. You can contact me at 651.757.6635 or

I recently wrote my first book "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom," which helps you teach middle and high school students how to learn effectively using metacognition and brain science. 

I regularly appear on education radio shows and podcasts to talk about my teaching journey, philosophy, and approach.
