How Well Would You Rate Your Child’s Study Skills?
Have you ever wondered why some students seem to ‘just get it’, and others struggle through never seeming to quite keep up at school?
Throughout the course of school, and even university, virtually every student we meet reports to never having been taught adequate study skills. Research indicates that even university students often use study techniques that are proven to be the least effective. We appreciate children often don’t want to spend hours on end doing homework; we strive to help students maintain balance by giving them the skills and techniques to study and learn more effectively.
Last week we discussed how important it is to understand a student’s learning style. A student’s learning style similarly impact how they respond to different study techniques. Learn more about Learning Styles here.
