Carol Wood, Total Learning Concepts

As an educator and educational consultant, it has become clear that the reason many students do not earn high grades or reach their full academic potential is due to less than ideal study skills. Not all students innately know how to approach their school work in the most effective and efficient ways. Students often tell me they know what to do, but just aren’t doing it.

Well, it’s not quite that simple!



Good study techniques are comprised of many components; such as, organization, goal setting, motivation, note-taking, test taking, memorization, reading strategies, communication skills, positive attitude and more. Effective study techniques must first be taught, then understood and practiced by the student in order to be successful. It is not enough to study “harder”. Students need to learn how to study “smarter”!

If you want your student’s academic situation to improve and college and career goals realized, then help him or her to assess, repair, and then maintain their academic foundation, current course material, and sound study orientation!
