Study Skills

The key to good study skills is to find the resonance and relevance between the subject and the student. In my own pursuit of education and in work with students as a NY state certified teacher it is clear that anyone can cram data into their head that may or may not stay as long as an upcoming test. My goal in helping to improve study skills (by improving focus, note-taking, and time management) is to help students recognize that what they gain from timely preparation and active participation in their education is of much greater value to them than all the things they fear and think they dislike about the action of learning outside the classroom.
