Did you know the way your child studies is just as important as what they are studying? Over the next couple of weeks, you’ll find some of our ideas which you can use to help ensure academic success for your child

1. Organize your time.

Have regular and shorter study times.

2. Plan when you’re going to study.

Schedule specific times throughout the week when you are going to study – and then stick with your schedule! Creating a weekly routine will help you develop habits to help you succeed in your education long term.

3. Study at the same time.

Planning and creating a consistent, daily study routine is important. When you study at the same time each day and each week, your studying will become a regular part of your life. If you have to change your schedule from time to time that’s okay, but get back on your routine as soon as possible.

4. Each study time should have a goal.

When you sit down to study, you need to know exactly what you are hoping to have accomplished by the end of your study time. For example – you hope to memorize 20 vocabulary words in order to ace the vocabulary section on an upcoming Biology test.

5. Never put off your planned study session.

It’s very easy to put off your study session because of lack of interest in the subject, you have other things you need to get done, or just because the assignment is hard. If you put off your study session, your studying will become much less effective and you may not get everything accomplished that you need to. This could also lead to rushing, and rushing is the number one cause of errors.

Stay tuned for further suggestions!
