This study is intended to examine the effect of optimizing the five academic skills, 1) Speed reading: reading speed and accuracy of understanding ; 2) Taking notes: organizational records, identification information, and the write speed; 3) Paraphrasing: choosing synonyms, and using alternate grammar; 4) Summarizing: condense ideas, identify the main points, and identifying main ideas; and 5) Synthesizing: identification themes and relation, select information from sources, and follow a plan, in English teaching learning process are improving students’ performance. This is a quantitative experimental study design; it means the five variables are treated optimally, then the effect on students’ achievement are observed. The problem in this research are: What percentage will the optimization of five academic skills be able to contribute the improvement of English skills and academic achievement? The hypothesis is that the optimization of five academic skills in teaching and learning English can improve by more than eighty percent (> 80%) students' academic achievement. Analysis of data using multiple linear regression were processed through the program Statistical Package Social Sciences. The findings in this study indicate that the hypothesis is accepted, because there has been increased academic achievement for ninety-two point six percent (92.6%) caused by the optimization of five academic skills in English teaching and learning process. It concludes that optimizing the five academic skills, in teaching and learning English process can improve the students’ academic achievements positive and significant, so it is believed that this finding is the key to success in academic performance.
