Improve Your Student's Study Sessions

In addition to your student's focus and time, the productivity of their study sessions depends on the quality of their study material. If they are studying from messy notes or a textbook which has been poorly written, then their study sessions aren’t going to be efficient. The Tutoring Center, Herndon VA has a post below on how a quick spring cleaning can improve the quality of your student’s notes and, in turn, their study sessions.

Time to Declutter

Start by decluttering their notebook of all the loose items. As you both make your way through each notebook, be sure to keep neat piles with pencil marks to help you match it back to its original page. Once you have a grand pile, let your youngster read through it all thoroughly and cut out only the important pieces from each loose item, such as a diagram or a single relevant paragraph.

Improve Notes

When it’s time to put it all back together, consider ways to improve the quality of your child's notes by reformatting them. For example, if you are looking at a page full of messy writing and some scribbles and you are considering stapling the diagram on the corner, get a fresh sheet of paper and rewrite the notes cleanly, using glue to stick the diagram on the relevant point in the notes. Not only does this remove any distractions from the page such as scribbles but it also provides your student with higher quality notes. With all the information well-written and a diagram in the correct position, your youngster can easily read the notes, darting their eyes around the page to pick up contextual references and reference the diagram itself.
