The new semester will be starting shortly, and it’s a great time to get serious about improving your child’s school work. Whether last semester was a struggle or you just suspect your child could be doing better, Academic Learning Labs has tutoring available specifically designed to help your child improve their study skills.
We often find that study skills are overlooked as an effective way to improve the grades of almost any child. We focus on a number of key areas that will equip your child to maximize their in-school experience and augment this with more effective study skills at home. It’s a remarkable skill to help your child develop since it will deliver results across all subjects in school. A child with strong study skills is much better equipped to face the challenges of any new subject they may face. Here are some of the key areas we’ll help your child improve:
Organization: We’ll help your child keep track of each assignment from each class. We’ll work with them to create an organized binder to better store and sort the work from each class. We’ll also work with them to create a work plan to make sure each subject gets the full attention required to excel in the class.
Time Management: This is one of the most important disciplines a child can learn. Our kids live in a world surrounded by distractions from texting, music, television, and outside activities. We’ll help your child understand the value of concentrated effort without interruption. Many students quickly learn to value that a short time concentrated on homework is far better than a long time spent on homework with frequent interruptions. The quality of the work is better as well.
Note Taking: It’s interesting that most students need to take notes to follow class work, but very little time is typically devoted to teaching a child exactly how to best take notes. We remedy that by helping equip your child to most effectively take notes in each of their classes. This is another tool that helps improve grades across all subjects.
Effective Studying: We’ll equip your child to best use the tools at hand for more effective research and subject-specific studying. We’ll help your child develop the discernment needed to wade through large amounts of information to determine what is most relevant, so they can take better advantage of their study time.
Test Taking Strategies: Test days are dreaded by virtually all students. We help your child calm their nerves and deliver their best performance on all types of tests and essays.
