Tutoring in Troy Michigan

03/26/2015


Test taking adds enormous pressure for some students. Being unable to handle this anxiety properly can lead to poor performance and affect a student's academic achievement. Getting nervous before a test is normal. However, when this situation is recurrent, it can become a problem. For this reason, at The Tutoring Center in Troy, we propose the following tips to cope with test anxiety. 

Prepare

It’s important to create a study routine at least two weeks before the test, so talk to your children and find out how much time they will need to prepare. Keep in mind that their study schedule should also include time for breaks. Remember that lack of preparation can lead to ineffective study methods, such as cramming the night before.

Healthy Habits

Eating a healthy diet that contains fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean meat, and dairy products is the perfect way to boost your children’s mental performance. Also, having enough rest during the night is crucial, so remember to set regular bedtimes and ban the use of electronic devices before going to bed, as the light from these devices causes sleep disturbances.

Study Space

Your children should have a space that fosters their concentration while they study, so try to find a place in your home that adapts to their learning style; remember to provide a comfortable chair, a sturdy desk, and school supplies. Having a study space at home will instill the discipline your children need to fulfill all their academic activities.

Carrying out these ideas is simple and they can help improve your children’s performance during a test, which is the first step towards great academic achievement. Also, be sure to read our guide on engaging your children in reading.
