How to prepare a university exam in a short time

Is it possible to prepare an exam in a week? In theory it is possible, aspiring, why not, even at 30 and praise. Unfortunately, however, not all cases are the same and the variables to be considered are many, from the difficulty of the subject to the number of pages to study, from the basic preparation you have on the exam topics to the determination, up to the capacity of memorization and learning in the short term you have.

How to Choose a Personal Tutor

Published by:

The personal tutoring market is growing, but that means that there is more choice than ever when it comes to employing one for your child. This makes it vitally important to know what to think about when making the choice for you and your youngster.

There is an abundance of private tutors and agencies out there, but there is no independent system of ratings, so the onus is on you to do your research, whether that means ensuring that they have undergone a basic DBS check or that they have appropriate references.

Where to Begin

One of the best places to start your search for a personal tutor is by looking at The Tutors Association website at www.thetutorsassociation.org.uk. Both freelance tutors and tutorial companies can be found on this professional organisation’s website, although there can be a shortage of these working outside London.

It’s also worth asking people you know if they have any experience of personal tutors in the area, or you could look at online tuition. If you’re planning on an in-person check, think about using a professional company such as http://www.carecheck.co.uk/basic-dbs-checks/ to carry out DBS checks, or use companies which are members of The Tutors Association who have already vetted their tutors. It is always worth double-checking an individual’s credentials, however.

Why Use a Company?

Reputable companies should interview their tutors face to face before taking them on and then continually monitor their professional success. Ensure that this is the case and you should have an added level of security and knowledge that you are getting the most for your money.

Companies can also make carrying out comparison checks easier than it is with individual tutors, as it should be easier to find online references and independent reviews. In the world of internet dominance, it is hard to keep poor performance secret, although you must be careful to not trust everything you read on the net.

Word of Mouth

There is no doubt that word of mouth is the best possible way of finding a great tutor. The word of a non-associated parent or teacher is so much more reliable than an advert or open testimonial. The independent reviews you find online may be useful, but they may also be false and of little use, so it always pays to be wary.

Effective study method: How to develop it?

Published by:

study method

Many students write to me subjecting me to the problems they encounter at school, and it is just the exchange of emails that I have daily with them to make me think that the difficulties they encounter depend not so much from poor application or from the generic “do not be carried”, but from the simple (and correctable) fact that they do not have an effective method of study.

Developing an effective method of study is not obvious, especially in a school system that almost always forgets to teach learning. And it is not obvious even to give recipes that work on every occasion, because everyone has his own style of learning, his favorite subjects, his times, his goals ….

Study Method: Start your day!

Study Method

This is not a real method of study, but only a warning to improve your health and … your concentration on the study!

Study Method: Sedentary Students!

Is your student life too sedentary? Try thinking about it! The lifestyle of many students is to be seated for the most part of the day. You are part of this category if you are sitting almost all the time: when you are at a lesson while studying at home, when you go to the PC or watch TV on the couch as you are at the table to eat. In the end, you go to sleep and you have done very little physical activity. Continue reading
