How to know if you're truly prepared for an exam

May 15, 2017

 

Today's tip:

 

Many students don’t know when they are (or should be) done studying for an exam. We’ve previously shared the benefits of using a K-W-L Chart for this purpose. Another litmus test is this straightforward theory attributed to Albert Einstein: “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” Using that statement as a guide, your child will know he is done studying and ready for an exam when he can explain the material simply and in his own words.

The Engaging Minds Difference

 

Engaging Minds offers a unique approach to traditional tutoring: we teach students how to learn and provide them with academic skills and strategies they need to succeed over the long-term. In addition to providing support in writing, reading comprehension, and problem-solving, we focus on teaching the increasingly important executive function skills (organization, prioritization, initiation of tasks, time management, planning, goal-setting) and guide students to become independent and self-confident learners. With these fundamental skills in place, students are better able to effectively approach, manage and complete nightly homework assignments, and are better poised to achieve their full potential.
