The new school year is getting closer, so now is a great time to prepare for your child's next year of classes. Check out these helpful tips to ensure your child has a successful and productive year.

Prepare for the Best School Year

Get your child ready for a successful school year in no time. Before their school year starts, get to work to ensure they have a less stressful and more productive year. To help them get organized and prepared, use these tips.

Create a School Time Routine

Your child may have a lot going on during the school year, including academics, extracurriculars, and maybe even an after school job. This can make it harder for them to manage their time and get everything done. To ensure your child is able to juggle it all, encourage them to create an after school routine. This can help them get their activities sorted and plan enough time to get their homework and studying done in a timely manner. Ensure that they also have time to recharge and relax regularly so that they don't get burnt out.

Set Some Goals

It's never a bad time to set goals, so even if the school year already started, your child can still set some new goals. Sit down with your child to talk about what they want to accomplish in the coming school year, whether it's academic or not. Your child may want to make the varsity team for the sport they play or they may want to reach a certain score on the SAT. Allow your child to make a few goals, and ensure that they're all SMART goals. Your child's goals should always be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and timely. This will ensure you can measure your child's progress and check in on them along the way.

Get Organized

Ensure your child starts the school year off with all the supplies they need. Start with some basics like notebook paper, notebooks, pens, and pencils on the first day of classes. Some teachers may require some specific items for their class, so wait until you know what will be needed before doing more back to school shopping. Once you know what your child will need, get these items as soon as you can so that they don't fall behind. It's also important to remind your child to clean out their backpack, binders, desk, and locker every week so that things never get too messy. If your child can use some extra help getting back to their academic best, enroll them in tutoring in Santa Rosa. You can the right program for your child by checking out the academic programs offered at The Tutoring Center, Santa Rosa CA.

Learn to Take Notes

Taking notes in class may sound like a basic task, but knowing how to take good notes can make all the difference. Remind your child that they need to be in class on time if not a bit a early so that they have time to get settled in and get their note-taking supplies out. To take proper notes, they'll also have to listen and know what to write down. Not everything the teacher says has to be jotted down, but rather your child should note down only the most important parts of the lecture. If they miss anything, they can ask their classmates to share their notes with them.

Get to Know Your Learning Style

What works for one child won't necessarily work for everyone. Your child may learn better using visual material while another student may prefer auditory material. Help your child discover their learning style so that they can then figure out study techniques that work best for them.

Ask for Help

Finally, it's never a bad idea to ask for help when it's needed. Some students are scared to raise their hand in class and ask a question because they're afraid they'll get made fun of. Encourage your child to work through this and ask when they have a question. They can also consult their teacher after class or even attend after school tutoring for a whole academic session.
