Top 5 study tips for your student


1. Track more than homework in your school planner. Include special events and doctors appointments! This will help you plan ahead.

2. Get into a routine. Routines change depending on each family member's schedule, but make sure homework makes the list every night!

3. Use class time wisely! This will allow for more free time in the afternoon.

4. Study a little every day. This will prevent you from having to cram for a test or rush through an assignment.

5. Create a distraction-free zone at home. No TV or electronics allowed!
