Scholar Within was founded on the principle that there is a scholar within us all. We all have the ability to study, learn, and apply our knowledge to the world to do great things. We believe that learning can become easier for everyone by using visual, auditory, and tactile methods.
Systematic, short, and incremental lessons are at the core of our curriculum. By spending time in bite-sized chunks, you can more effectively and efficiently make great learning progress.
Our approach is fundamentally different from traditional education. We work on improving your visual, auditory, and tactile sensory systems to make your brain work more efficiently. We also give you practical, systematic tools to use in your other academics and in life.
Bonnie Terry, M.Ed., BCET
Bonnie Terry is a board-certified educational therapist with over 35 years of experience. She has helped tens of thousands of students across the world improve their reading and overall learning skills through materials she has custom designed.
Bonnie started a private learning center in the 1990s when she began designing and developing her own custom learning tools, books, and games. When teachers started asking her what she was doing with the kids who came to see her and where they could get some of her tools. That’s when she decided to make her materials available to all. Her tools are now used all over the world.
Now, Bonnie has teamed up with her son, design and technology expert Nick Terry, to develop her learning system into online courses that can reach the next generation of students.
Nick Terry is a design and technology expert who has been building websites for 20 years. He is an Eagle Scout, UC Davis graduate, former Yahoo! and Box.com employee, as well as a design and development consultant for Facebook, Credit Karma, and numerous Silicon Valley startups.
Nick is an avid nature lover, hiker, mountain biker, camper, snowboarder, and photographer. When he is not working on building tools for people to use on the web, you may catch him in the outdoors.
Over the past 5 years, Nick and Bonnie have teamed up to elevate Bonnie’s teaching methods. Nick has been able to take what he has learned from working with some of the world’s most influential technology companies and apply them to Bonnie’s strategies to make the programs more cohesive, powerful, and better designed than ever before.
