Tutoring in Torrance, CA.

 There are many elements to being a good student and there are a whole host of ways in which you can help your child develop these skills, whether that means helping them with their time management skills or creating the perfect study space in your home, as The Tutoring Center in Torrance would like to talk you through today.

Pick the right area

Every child is unique and as such they each have their own best way to learn. This means that different study environments are beneficial for different students, contrary to the outdated belief that a silent, bare room is the best place for learning. Your child may well appreciate silence and total freedom from distraction, but equally they may well work best with a little background noise and bustle. That said, it’s important to remove real distractions from their study space; it should be free of TVs and cell phones, and your child should understand that they can only use their computer if it’s necessary for their studies.

Stick with it

Once you’ve picked a spot to designate as your child’s study space, make sure it stays there! Moving around the house and lacking routine and structure is a surefire way for your child to get distracted during study and they will undoubtedly struggle to form good study habits. If they have a regular place in which to study, it’ll quickly become a habit to head there at a certain time to get their work done.

Lay in supplies

You of course need to provide a desk and a comfy chair, but it’s also crucial to ensure the space is well-lit with a reading light to avoid your child straining their eyes, and to supply any materials they will need for their studies so they are not obliged to keep fetching pens, pencils, paper and so forth.

Pin up a study schedule

Having a reference available that can tell your child what they need to get done is a great way to keep their studies on track. Encourage them to use their schedule and it will soon become second nature.
If your child is struggling with any academic area then creating a study space may well help, but you have plenty of other options too. Hiring a professional tutor can provide the targeted support your child needs to excel at school.
