For many students whose grades are on the cusp, final exams can make a big difference. Final exams are usually heavily weighted, and offer an opportunity for your student to showcase what he or she has learned all semester.
Additionally, final exams are a great opportunity for your student to evaluate himself. Many subjects require a mastery of basic material in order for your student to move on confidently. So instead of dreading finals, your student can view them as a really good chance to brush up on the skills he will need to do well in the upcoming semester.
Make A Plan
I’m personally tutoring many students as they prepare for their finals in early to mid-December, including college students attending such schools as Lynn University and high school students attending Palm Beach Central, Wellington High school, American Heritage, John I Leonard, and others. My years of tutoring experience have taught me that the students who will do best are those who approach finals with a plan of attack.
So my advice is to sit down with your student and brainstorm a study schedule with specific daily goals. It shouldn’t be overwhelming – no three hour marathon study sessions – but manageable instead, something your student knows he can stick to. As with anything in life, a plan makes studying for finals less daunting.
I’d be happy to help your student organize his schedule and prepare for finals, so if I can be of assistance, please contact Wellington Tutoring. We look forward to meeting you.Read More
