Helping Your Teenager Prepare for Finals, Cambrian Park, California

Final exams are just around the corner, which means it's time to start helping your high school student get ready. A little early preparation will go a long way toward preventing last-minute stress when test time comes around, so follow these tips from Study Wizards Tutoring, an accomplished home tutoring service based in San Jose and Mountain View:

Be encouraging, but understand that if your child hasn't put in the work all semester, they probably won't do well on a cumulative exam. Try to make your children understand that learning is a process that begins on the first day of class, and that everything can't be crammed into pre-test study sessions.


Try to avoid lecturing your teenager on what they should have done differently—hopefully, they'll come to this conclusion on their own. Instead, try to determine what they can do to improve in the future, and find ways that you can be of assistance.


If there's a discrepancy in grading, resist the temptation to handle it yourself. Allowing your student to handle it on their own will teach them to take ownership over their education. It's important to be there to offer study help, but avoid forcing yourself into your child's routine. Preparing teenagers for the responsibilities of life is an important element of high school, which self-directed studying helps to fulfill.


If your student is weak in a specific area, hiring a qualified tutor with a record of success will often lead to significant grade improvements. Visit Study Wizards Tutoring online now to learn more, or just call (408) 883-8660 for a free consultation today.
