Giving Your Child the Tools to Take Better Notes

If you find that your child has trouble preparing for tests, the problem could very well be their notes. In this post, The Tutoring Center in Hoover has some ideas for you to share with your child to give their note taking a helping hand.

How to Take Thorough Notes

If you find that your child's notes are a little light, encourage them to create or join a small note taking group where they can compare notes after each lecture. If each member is assigned specific pieces of information to focus on it can help ensure important points are not being missed.  For example, assign one member to focus on recording dates and times, whilst another student takes long form notes when there are examples of context.  Of course, this needs to be in addition to their general note taking during the session.

How to Keep Notes Easy to Access

Whilst the majority of your child's notes  will be written during their lectures or study groups, what about those 'moments of brilliance' where they have a sudden thought or realization during their day?Search the internet for online based note taking services which include linked phone apps and web based services. Providing your child with a method for them to take notes anywhere and anytime can ensure these moments are not missed.

These are just some of the ways that you can become directly involved in helping your child take better notes.
