Does your child misplace their homework, forget to turn it in, not plan in advance for large projects, not know how to organize or take notes? Now more than ever study skills are crucial to your child or teen’s academic success. Often parents and teachers assume students learn study skills on their own, but this is often not the case. Study skills need to be taught explicitly and private tutors can not only teach these skills, but also help reinforce them by working with the student on a weekly basis to ensure practice and mastery. Many experts think that only students with ADHD or learning disabilities struggle with organization, time management, prioritization, test taking skills, use of active reading/listening strategies, notetaking, etc but a vast majority of students near learn these skills in their general education classes.
