Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a teacher push a stack of books toward you and say, “Here. Go study.” If that’s you, you are not alone!
This “go figure it out” approach to study stops many students dead in their tracks. It’s not that they aren’t willing to put in the effort, it’s simply that no one ever taught them how to study. Just like any other subject, study is a skill, and it CAN be taught. Here are five helpful tips to building an effective study plan.
- Know your habits, learning style, and schedule.
- Set SMART goals.
- Create an organized space that keeps you focused.
- Learn to welcome feedback and review.
- Ask for help! Hint: Attend a Live Coaching Session!
