There are two main types of study, reversion for exams, and acquiring knowledge. Acquiring knowledge is normally done over a long period and your study plan will be for 2 or 3 sessions a week, of 20-40 minutes at a time. Revision study is much more intensive and is designed to ensure you have retained the prior knowledge acquired. 123 Tuition does both with structured study plans, and revision modules.
Here we will discuss revision:
Studying can be difficult, and unfortunately there isn’t one method of studying that works for everyone. Every person learns in different ways, which is why developing a personal study plan can be helpful. Developing a personal study plan can optimise learning both through online tuition and at school; by getting to know what works for your child, you can use that to your advantage to ensure your child gets the most out of their learning. Here are a few tips to consider when you are helping your child with their own individual study plan.
Consider Your Strengths and Weaknesses
Some subjects might come naturally , and others may be a bit more of a struggle. This should be reflected in the study plan. While you may enjoy English more, if you struggle with maths you should be dedicating more time to it, so you can learn and understand it to the same level as other subjects.
Keep it Balanced
Studying is obviously important, but so is having a break when you need it. Research shows that taking purposeful breaks (anywhere from 5–60 minutes) from studying to refresh your brain and body increases your energy, productivity, and ability to focus. Make sure you include plenty of breaks when you are making your study plan, and if you find your mind constantly wandering, take 10 minutes to go for a walk or stretch, so you can come back focused and ready to learn.
Establish Realistic Goals
Think about your long term and short-term goals. Maybe the goal is to pass your English exam. One way to do that is to break your study down into smaller and more manageable goals. As you get more confident, you can increase your short-term goals and get more done. Make a list of these goals, and dates that you want to complete them by. Tick them off as you go, and you’ll be able to track the progress that you make! Remember 123 can help do that for you.
Use the Resources You Have!
Don’t be afraid to ask your teachers to help you with anything you are unsure of. 123 Tuition offers a maths and English tuition programme that puts a virtual private tutor in your home seven days a week – and a live teacher 6 days a week, who will explain and re-explain the “How” and the “Why” of each step of the learning process in maths and English. They can help you to develop an individual study plan that works for your learning needs.
