About

Hi, my name’s Al Khan, nice to meet you!

This blog is all about making you a better learner. Specifically, I turn forgetful students into exam dominators — people who walk into their exam room feeling like they’re going to destroy everyone’s career…

Okay, maybe that’s a bit of a stretch.

But really, I help people shove what they learn into their long-term memory in a reliable fashion.

It’s as simple as it gets.

And to tell you a bit about how that started…

I’ve learned about Anki from Thomas Frank back in 2017, I think.

A little short of 2 years later, this would allow me to go from a failing college student who didn’t even care about school

…who forgets everything as he goes out the classroom door…

…who crams all night and feels like he’s ready for the exam (but not really)…

…to ranking #1 in our batch’s Mock Board Exams…

…to achieving 99th percentile (ranking #6 out of 2900+ takers) in the real deal — the national Electronics Engineering Board Exams…

…to helping me get a paid scholarship in one of the top Engineering universities in the Philippines. (My major is Control Systems Engineering)

On top of that, shortly after getting my title as an Engineer, I blogged over at a website called Improveism so I can share to others what has worked for me.

As the blog name implies, much of “what worked” were self-improvement concepts, but it was a holistic approach — not the usual wishy-washy stuff you see during cult meetings.

Compound effect…

Behavior science…

Cognitive psychology…

ALL that stuff — because I’ve read endless pop psychology books and have been applying what I’ve learned for YEARS.

That blogging continued for a year…until I noticed I was spreading myself out too thin.

So I realized I should just focus on helping students become better learners.

To help them go from a “forgetful crammer” to an “exam dominator” through my no-BS “lean” approach.

Since then, I’ve dedicated all my free time helping 15,000 students each month learn better through this blog, LeanAnki.com.

BUT just to be clear, it’s not through the usual type of “advice” you commonly see on YouTube — I teach evergreen principles and systems that will help you make progress day in, day out.

Long-term memory doesn’t have to be left to chance, you know.

So if you want to take the leap with me…
