NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Whether you’re a first-year middle schooler, finishing your last year of high school, or if you’re a parent of a student eager for summer, we’ve got your back.
Joining us Sunday on Good Morning Connecticut, Michelle Sagalyn, CEO of Successful Study Skills 4 Students, shares 8 tips for finishing the school year strong.
Click on the video above to watch the full interview with News 8’s Stephanie Simoni. Below are the 8 tips Sagalyn says can help all students.
- When: Know when all the final exams are taking place: date, format, what will be on it.
- Gather: Gather all old quizzes and tests – make sure you know the answers to what you may have gotten incorrect in the past. Make note cards and use your notes as study guides.
- Plan: Make a detailed study calendar of when you will study for what subject.
- Pace: Plan on studying and completing projects over time, not one or two days before – plan on NOT cramming!
- Ask: Determine if you need extra help and make a plan to get it by asking a teacher, or forming a study group. Seeing a teacher may also earn you some brownie points!
- Attitude: Remember what you’ve worked for – remind yourself of the effort you’ve made this year. Don’t let bad effort studying for a final test or project undo all of your efforts.
- Focus on a Goal: Setting a goal for yourself will help you stay focused and on track and will help to eliminate distractions.
- Health: Eat healthy and get enough sleep.
