Designate a safe place in the house to store papers that are not currently needed at school anymore. They may be useful in the future. The papers could be used to study for a test later in the year. Sometimes a teacher may make a mistake in their gradebook and mark that an assignment wasn’t turned in when it really was. By saving these papers, your student can then prove they actually did do the work.
To make new information stick (vocabulary, facts & etc), try spacing out study sessions over several weeks. Research on what is know as the “spacing effect” shows that we form stronger and more lasting memories by exposing ourselves to information over time. Repeated cycles of learning, consolidating, and then re-encountering material fix it firmly in our minds. Avoid last minute cramming if you can help it.

“Y3K Tutor In Your Home really made a difference. The quality sets it apart from other programs. The founder is phenomenal as he went above and beyond to help my kids to achieve their goals. We had the founder of the company and I believe he helped my kids immensely. Both in development as students and as people. He embodies many admirable qualities in particular his selflessness and devotion. To have him as a friend and mentor is rewarding. I highly recommend this tutor and organization.”
