Often, students are not taught HOW to study and what to study. As a long-time college professor I can share teacher techniques and how we choose what we choose related to tests and discussions. There are also basic principles of testing that must be learned. Take some time now during your break to learn how to study and what to study and even how to take tests, so in the Fall you will be ready to go with a fresh outlook and new knowledge toward academic success. These principles work for all students (even if you are in high school--especially if you are taking college courses in your last year)--I can also help you with your college course syllabus--a big deal document (guide) that your profs spend a lot of time producing...which many students ignore! I can help you "read between the lines" of any syllabus and get to know what your professors are really thinking, saying and wanting from you through their syllabus.

You are brilliant when it comes to some of your courses, but in other areas...you just don't get it. It may not be just you! Humans learn in different ways and professors tend to teach to the masses. As an experienced professor, I teach students in more of a visual, applicable fashion. When you and I finish with our tutoring sessions you will understand the material because you will make it your own through example and solid application to your life and experiences. Basic Psych courses (and Soc) are typically the most failed courses taken by students. Often because students get lost in the minutia--and there's a lot of it. The idea is to pay more attention to concepts and "be like a bird flying over the course"--picking up concepts, rather than a zillion details. Let's get going...send me an email now and let's discuss what is possible so you can begin getting better grades! You can do it! I am happy to help.
