Step 2:

Plan with the only study planner that compares your time and workload!

Shovel Study Planner helps you plan your studies by comparing your time and workload

Unlike other study planners, Shovel was not built on the foundation of calendars and to-do lists for soccer moms and businessmen. It was built for students, from the ground up.

As a student, your free time is not simply a gap in your schedule, it is the time you have available for studying. We compare it to the time you need to finish your tasks and let you know if you can get everything done on time, in real time.

We’re from two different generations, but we think that combining our different perspectives brings out better, more realistic solutions for you – the student.

So, why listen to us?

Hint: Because we want to help you!

Hi there! I’m Jim (handsome left) and Petr (the ugly one) is on my right. We’re the co-founders of How To Study In College and the Shovel Study Planner.

I’m a retired businessman and a few years ago I set out on a mission to help students do better in school. I’m a dad of 3 college graduates but I’ve seen far too many of their friends drop out, dumb down their majors, or move back into their parents’ basement after graduation. There’s no reason for that. It bothers me and I want to fix it.

I was a terrible student in high school but once I got into college, I devoured every ‘how to study’ book I could get my hands on. I graduated at the top of my class in both college and law school. Now I want to help you do the same because I know it’s possible. You can read more about me here.

Petr was a Czech hockey player and when he was a teenager, he received financial aid to attend a prestigious boarding school in the US (Hotchkiss). He was picked in the NHL draft by the Philadelphia Flyers at age 18 and ended up at Harvard where he totally bombed. Hahaha what an idiot! Now he’s stuck working with me. I’m just kidding, he graduated, but it wasn’t easy. Now he wants to help you avoid his mistakes. Read his story here.

Below are more teasers about the awesome study planner we built for you.
