Dr. Jeannette J. Vos has lived in four countries: The Netherlands, Canada, USA and New Zealand. As a highly-skilled teacher and trainer, she has worked with people of diverse cultures and socio-economic levels from all walks of life and with all age groups—from early childhood through high school, university, the corporate world and senior citizens. She has also worked extensively with students having learning difficulties and those at-risk.
In 1993, she earned her doctorate from Northern Arizona University with a seven-year study researching high-performance learning methods based on the neurosciences and best practices from around the world. Shortly thereafter, she became co-founder* and Senior Professor of the National Institute for Teaching Excellence at Cambridge College, Boston, Massachusetts and the Ontario, California campus. There, as part of a MacArthur Foundation Grant, she trained master’s degree students as well as teachers who served at-risk students. Her courses included both the art and science of teaching and
learning—with special emphasis on how music and good nutrition help to break learning
As a learning consultant to many companies and schools, researcher and coauthor of the international best-seller book, The Learning Revolution, and its sequel, Unlimited, Dr. Vos trained thousands of people internationally on self-learning and coaching with high- performance methods. Her multi-media presentations have attracted huge audiences around the world. As a world leader in this area, she has spent more than 15 years on an almost nonstop series of presentations around the globe to corporations, educational organizations and schools. She also provides an in-depth four-day Self-Learning Revolution training (Levels One, Two and Three) for certification.
Her new series includes books, handbooks and apps related to self-learning. They are based on the latest technology, neurobiology, health (especially the science of living food nutrition and exercise such as Pilates and yoga), cognitive sciences, NLP, hypnotherapy, educational kinesiology, transpersonal psychology, communication skills, accelerated learning, the arts (particularly music) and quantum physics research. Dr. Vos integrates all these holistically into strategic tools to unleash one’s self-learning ability.
Growing up in very difficult times in Europe and Canada, as a child she was ridiculed and subject to bullying for being a “girl” and for not speaking English well. However, Jeannette understood at a young age that education was the key to rising above the cultural deprivation of her childhood, and she made a commitment to herself to become the best learner that she could be. The result: not only did Jeannette earn a doctoral degree in education, she also added a number of certifications to her repertoire of skills.
In addition to helping people awaken, accelerate and deepen their self-learning ability, Dr. Vos also feels strongly that powerful learning is linked to thinking ability (both critical and creative), as well as to health of brain/body/mind/spirit (all connected).
