Meet Jordan Harry, the founder of StudyFast.
After a childhood speech impediment left me struggling to read throughout school, I learned strategies from world leading speed readers that dramatically enhanced my reading ability. I have now taught 3,000+ students and professionals from over 120 countries.
I now read at 1,500 words per minute (7 times faster than the average reader) and now I help others unlock their potential to learn anything faster. I had to come up with a way to empower not only myself but the lives of others.
You can read faster, and I will show you how.
Frequently asked questions
1. What's the average reading speed?
The average student reads at 250 words per minute (Love 2012).
2. Should you speed read everything?
No! When reading for enjoyment it is okay to slow down.
3. How fast can you read before comprehension suffers?
Studies have found that when people read over 1,500 words per minute comprehension ultimately suffers (Maloney 2009).
4. Can you read for hours on end?
Definitely not! When speed reading your eye muscles are working at a higher speed. So it is important you take breaks.
5. What qualifies you as a speed reader?
The baseline for a speed reader is a reading speed of 600 words per minute with a comprehension of 65% (Buzan 1971).

Why we’re different
There is no greater superpower than the ability to get through information quickly and to remember it. Therefore, we don’t just train you to read fast we also improve your memory and mindset.
There are lots of reading techniques out there such as skimming (not reading every word), avoiding sub-vocalisation (talking to yourself while reading), and enlarging the peripheral span (reading several words or even an entire page at a time by taking a mental snapshot). While these methods can be effective, finishing your book in a day and remembering that information the next day or a month later are two different things.
The StudyFast teachings expand beyond speed reading and focus on managing information overload by changing the way students and professionals manage information.
Our speed reading training is unique because we combine workshops, web applications and the online course to teach you how to manage information overload by becoming an effective and efficient reader.
