Effective Study Skills – How to Help

Here are a few guidelines for day students’ parents as they monitor study time at home:

  1. Establish a specific study/homework time and place – and have him stick to it!
  2. Remove distractions and devices not required for schoolwork.
  3. Join him each night in reviewing his list/calendar of tests, assignments, and project-due dates.
  4. Encourage him to start each night with his most difficult assignment and most challenging subject.
  5. Remind him to begin studying and preparing for tests several days in advance.
  6. For classes with no specific assignment due the next day, he should review notes and major topics.
  7. Check on him periodically during study time and see that all assignments are completed.
  8. Encourage him to write in his Learning Journal!
  9. Encourage him to read great books beyond the curriculum.
  10. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to email his faculty advisor.
