We’re taking on the role of a detective and using a personal experience because every good author writes their best fiction work from actual real-life experience. If you are asked to do this in an exam, the quickest way to fail this exercise is to start making things up. The quickest way to succeed is to start by thinking about something that really happened and picture yourself in that place, like a detective. And so, in this course, we’re going to teach you how to gather your thoughts, organize them, put them in the timeline order, and then you’ve got a story that makes sense based on your own life.

Who is this Course for?

This course was designed with teens in mind. Exams can be stressful, especially for highly creative people with busy minds. This course is the first on a path to help you learn how to use the BulletMap System to destress dyslexia by organizing your thoughts visually.

Have you seen my description of the dyslexic brain as a Zero Gravity Workshop? If not, check out the video here. Sometimes people with dyslexia can confuse the order of your thoughts or facts and lose your audience when you retell a story. When you lose their attention, you can lose credibility and lose confidence.

If you have taken The Dyslexia Quiz in our app, you might have answered to yes to:

But with the BulletMap system, it will be fun and faster than the normal way you tell a story. The BulletMap you create will help you organize your thoughts and facts and retell your story with clarity. And you won’t need someone to reorganize your work!


Children with dyslexia naturally have strong imaginations and creativity but it sometimes gets in the way when explaining something or telling a story. Sometimes, their ideas come in random order and it’s hard for them to identify which one is more important than the other. This may hinder their productivity and make them confused.

The BulletMap method takes all the confusion and brings so much peace and focus with only a single piece of paper and some pens.

Why is learning how to write a story so important?

Writing a story is one of the most important things a person with dyslexia can learn because it’s the main way to explain things and persuade people to do things! When they become a teenager, they need to be able to summarise books and research in order to persuade teachers they know what they’re talking about.

If they become a teacher or parent someday, they need to tell stories that motivate students or help children to learn.

If they become a businessman, they need to share the stories of their product or business. Nearly everything in their head needs to be explained as a story. But a story floating in our head is not good enough. We need to know how to get it down on paper! This is what this tutoring program is all about.

Our team is passionate about helping children with dyslexia to learn the skill of explaining their ideas persuasively as a story. Because we know they have a lot of amazing stories to tell but without this skill, their ideas can get stuck their your head.

What are BulletMap Students and Parents Saying?


“I was so worried (when he gets to college level) how he is going to take notes, how he’s going to ever learn to write papers, but now with Bulletmapping I’m confident that he will be able to do all of that… BulletMap is an answered prayer.” – Megan, mum of Wyatt


“I wanted to give her the best possible way to prepare her for schoolwork, for going into big school, into a University, onto life. And I couldn’t find anything until I came across this (BulletMap Academy). It’s like a lifeline.” – Janine, mum of Evie


“I began using the BulletMap system with my high school and university students in 2019. I have found that it helps ALL students map what the questions are really asking so they don’t stop before they are finished. Their essays and presentations are organized, include relevant and sufficient details, and address the prompt directly. They are finishing faster, scoring higher marks, and more importantly actually having fun. They are visibly less stressed and confident that they understand what they have learned and can answer the question to show what they know.”

Frequentlly Asked Questions

What’s the right age to do this?

Ideally students should begin preparing for future exams around age 11. Older students and even adults can catch on quickly and achieve lasting results.

How long will it take?

It depends on their age and level of dyslexia. Bulletmapping produces rapid and exciting results within months, but it needs practice and careful encouragement so children can use it confidently in school. Our core mission is to get children stable, happy and successful at school. If you want to get to the “stable and happy” stage, it will take about 3 months. If you want to get to the “successful at school” stage it takes about a year.

How do I know if it will work for my child?

Bulletmapping transforms most dyslexic children’s experience of school, but not every child is ready. We don’t want you to waste time or money. So we ask students to give an introductory course a try. We can help you see if they are ready. If they aren’t, we will recommend you wait for 6 months and check again. BulletMap Academy is a more intensive approach with the dedicated support of an instructional coach. The coach will provide feedback, help boost your child’s confidence and become a trusted partner in your child’s education.

Can I delay the start?

This course is self-paced and can be completed in a day, a week, or longer. However, for lasting results, the child or teen should practice using the system on multiple assignments or consider a membership in BulletMap Academy.

Is canceling easy?

Yes. There are lots of ways to do it. You can do it yourself in your membership page, call us, or email us.

Do you give a money-back guarantee?

Yes. We know you want to be completely sure this is going to work for your child. We want you to have complete peace of mind, so we also give a 30-day 100% money-back guarantee. It’s written in our terms of service.

What format is the course delivered in?

Once you purchased the course, you’ll be given a login for the Academy where you can watch the training videos. You’ll
receive an email with your username and password you can use to log in. The videos can only be viewed on the website.
