Study skills are essential building blocks for learning, skills that students need to “wake up,” become engaged in learning, and build self-confidence. For students who have historically struggled in school, study skills help them get organized, study smarter, and take control of their own learning so they can achieve success in school and beyond. At Score at the Top, we know that how a student studies determines how much that student will retain. That’s why we weave study skills into the fabric of our academic coaching. As tutoring sessions build study skills, our students discover how much easier it can be to:
- Manage time
- Organize backpacks & notebooks
- Improve memory
- Complete homework
- Read textbooks
- Take notes
- Study for & take tests
- Communicate with teachers & parents
- Complete long-range assignments
- Set goals
With improved study skills, your child will be able to recall historical events and dates in a meaningful way, find the main idea in a passage, attack complex math problems with ease, assess essential information to prepare for tests, and manage deadlines by avoiding procrastination and cramming. Students enhance their sense of well-being when they utilize their own strengths to memorize and learn. Personal organizing is a style! We’ll do the tailoring that turns information into knowledge, and knowledge into skill. Good grades will follow!
Excelling at sports requires years of strengthening and maintaining basic skills necessary for success. No parent should expect a child to pick up a ball and become a starting-team star. Academics are no different. Without training and mentoring, many students with genuine ability fumble along without reaching their goals. Score At The Top tutors are committed to helping every child achieve maximum potential. Still falling short? We’ll give you the lift you need.
