Study Tips During The Holidays

Study Tips for Toddlers and Teens

Tutor Doctor of Mequon Offers Advice on How to Stay on Top of School during Holiday Season

 

Mequon, WI – Before kids can start celebrating the holiday season, they must first log in countless hours of studying and numerous homework sessions. Often this series of tests and quizzes can become stressful and lead children to become less focused and motivated during a time they need to keep their minds sharp.

 

“Typically we see that around this time, children become a bit distracted with the holidays and winter break coming up,” said Joyce Feaster of Tutor Doctor in Wisconsin. “Because of this, it is important to remind students about proper study techniques so they can stay on top of their studies during the testing season.”

 

Whether students are learning their ABC’s in kindergarten or cramming for finals in high school, it is important to have the right study habits in order to achieve the best results. Tutoring is a great option for parents, especially those who can’t quite remember the ins and outs of their child’s high school calculus curriculum, since the holidays get a bit busy.

 

Tutor Doctor offers these basic tips to help your child stay focused and on top of their academics during the hectic times we refer to as the holidays.

 

• Study in an environment similar to the one you learn and take tests in.

Your student may want to do their homework on their bed, but studies show it will be easier during a test to recall the information they studied if they study in an environment similar to the classroom.

 

• Designate a “study area.”

Whether it is the kitchen table, free from distractions, or a desk in the child’s room, there should be a designated area where the child does their homework. This way they will understand when they are in this spot, it’s time to learn.

 

• Figure out the best time to study.

Everybody learns differently, and different times work better for each individual. In order to maximize efficient learning, take on the more difficult lessons when your mind is sharpest.

 

• Spread out learning and study over a long period of time.

The brain needs time to process and absorb information. It is much more effective to learn small amounts over a long period. For example, studying for a half an hour a day over a week is better than studying for three hours in one day.

 

“It is understandable that kids are a little burnt out from school at this time of year,” said Feaster. “Hopefully these tips will help kids study and reduce the stress in their academic life.”
