Studying is an individualized process. Some people prefer the pressure of the pre-test cram, while others need small spurts of studying over the course of a month. AJ’s study skills class will improve your study skills by giving tools and approaches that work best for you. This course will furnish your student with systematic study strategies that will improve academic performance and that will be useful for the rest of his or her life. Our program focuses on note-taking from both textbooks and lectures, test preparation techniques, outlining, reading retention strategies, and stress management skills.
We will structure your student’s study skills instruction around a class he or she will take next year at school. Study skills will be taught in the context of that course, so your student will learn academic content while he is improving his study skills. For example, if your student will be taking US History next year, we would teach reading comprehension and note-taking skills from his history textbook and the tutor’s lectures, essay outlining and organization, and time-management and test-preparation techniques geared towards history exams.
Improving study skills is helpful for all age levels, but especially for students transitioning from middle school to high school or from high school to college.
