Unique Moment In History at The American School Of Tegucigalpa (AST)

Last Saturday, January 23rd, 2015, we made history at The American School Of Tegucigalpa with the first ever seminar on this speed reading proven system taught in The White House. Over 75 AST students and staff were able to improve tremendously their reading & comprehension rates. Among them, we have these success stories within this 1-hour introductory seminar :

-Carlos Ruben Fiallos' reading rate went from 228 words per minute (wpm) to 664 wpm.
-Isabuela Bueso's reading rate went from 194 wpm to 621 wpm.
-Daniel George Massu's reading rate went from 342 wpm to 900 wpm.
-Rafael Ramirez's reading rate went from 180 wpm to 648 wpm.
-Daniel Zablah's reading rate went from 380 wpm to 622 wpm.
-Rodrigo Figueroa's reading rate went from 350 wpm to 659 wpm.
-Maria Fernanda Irias' reading rate went from 265 wpm to 650 wpm.
-Jorge Rafael Callejas Flefil's reading rate went from 301 wpm to 648 wpm.
-Gabriel Facusse's reading rate went from 300 wpm to 560 wpm.

Each and every one of the AST students did an incredible job. The majority score initially above the world's average which is an estimate range from 150 wpm to 250 wpm. Mostly score above the average and end up reading two to three times faster with high level of comprehension. We have a total of 75 students which 52 were from 10th grade (students who are to prepare for PSAT).

They learned the keys to score high on standardized tests including SAT. Now they are excited about the upcoming 3-Hour Intensive Seminar on this Saturday 1/30: http://www.tinyurl.com/astseminar
