Help Your Child Set Goals for the New Year

Although the school year is about halfway gone, the beginning of the new year is a great time to set goals and resolutions that will guide your child to academic success. To get some ideas for goals that can help your child close the school year successfully, continue reading.

Cut Down on Distractions

If your child often completes their homework or studying while being surrounded by distractions, it may not be very effective. For example, if your child is reading a textbook while also replying to messages on their phone, their homework is not getting their full attention. This means they may spend more time completing homework or they may complete it without really paying attention to what they're doing. Either of these cases is less than ideal. Help your child by figuring out what their main distractors are and eliminating them during homework and study time.

Make Time to Study

Most students only make time to study right before an important exam, but your child should actually be studying daily. They don't have to study for hours on end, but taking at least an hour to review notes, go over lessons, and read over important material each day can help them be much more prepared for future exams and quizzes. Studying over a longer period will ensure that they learn the material rather than just memorizing it the day before a test. Making studying a part of your child's day to day activities or a part of their daily routine will make them less likely to fight it. Get them in the habit of studying by scheduling study time every day at the same time. Whatever your child's academic goals are for the rest of the school year, The Tutoring Center, Torrance CA can help. Contact them at (310)530-5377 to learn more about their academic programs and tutoring approach.

Stop Procrastinating

Procrastination is a very common bad habit among many students. Although it may seem like your child is just being lazy and leaving assignments or studying to the last minute, there are actually many causes behind it. Some students put off doing work because they don't understand how to do it, while others may just be intimidated by the amount of work they have to do. To beat this habit, start by figuring out what is causing your child to put off doing their work. Once you have this figured out, it will be much easier to tackle the real issue. For example, if your child is having trouble understanding their work and refusing to do it, enrolling them in tutoring can help. A tutor can go over lessons your child had trouble with and help them learn those lessons using techniques geared towards their learning style.

Explore New Activities

Exploring new activities, classes, and clubs is a great idea for students of all ages. Participating in a sport, art class, or even learning a new language can be fun for your child while also helping them grow into a well-rounded student. If your child has always wanted to learn to play a new instrument or is interested in taking photos, encourage them to give these activities a try. They may find new friends with similar interests or discover a new passion which they hadn't given much thought to before. Remember that these activities are also great when it comes time to fill out college applications in the future.

Enjoy the School Year

School is about so much more than just good grades and exams, especially for older students. School should also be a fun place where your child is able to socialize, find their passions, and have fun every once in a while. It's important that your child looks up from their textbooks and makes time for important school events that form an important part of being a student. Ensure that your child has enough time to relax and hang out with friends, attend school events, and participate in fun extracurricular activities. This is especially important if your child is in their last year at their school. Help them make the most of the year by allowing them time for some healthy fun.
