Tutoring in Hoover, AL

12/02/2014
Finishing homework on time and preparing for a test in advance are great study habits that don’t happen overnight. Instilling these skills in your children requires a certain amount of time and effort but it brings huge rewards such as increased independence and confidence. 

If your children frequently postpone their study time and cram for a test the night before, they need to learn how to manage their time better. The Tutoring Center in Hoover would like to share a few useful ideas to help accomplish this goal. 

Create a Schedule

Teach your children the value of time and how to use it wisely. There are many tools that can be useful. Use a daily planner to schedule each day and focus on the tasks that are more difficult or demand more time. Try breaking large activities into smaller chunks; this will help your child recall information more easily and boost their confidence. 

Rewards

It’s important to reward the efforts of your children with breaks, which will allow them to rest, relax or energize. Breaks can also give your children time to review their work and look for mistakes. 

Distractions

Perhaps this is the biggest obstacle; everyone will put off important tasks for five more minutes of a more pleasant activity. Identify those things that get in the way of your children’s learning; for instance, block social networks, remove TV and tell them to switch off their cell phone until they’re finished.  

Ineffective studying can trigger anxiety and frustration in your children, and lack of confidence or perfectionism can often be some of the reasons behind it. Talk to your children frequently and find out what is bothering them. Don’t forget to read this post containing useful information to help your children organize.
