The Final Stretch – Study Skills and Strategies for Final Exams


The end of the school year is already here, meaning it’s time to get your children ready for final exams. High-pressure tests like finals can intimidate even the highest-performing students, so preparing well in advance is key to making your student comfortable enough to do their best.

At Study Wizards Tutoring in San Jose, CA, we know how difficult finals week can be, so we’re glad to offer these study skills and test prep tips from professional tutors.

First off, you can help your kids get the most out of their studying by making a schedule starting a few weeks before hand. Specific periods should be dedicated to studying certain areas with the priority being what definitely, then what probably, then what might be on the test. If they use their phone for calendaring, then that could be set up for alerts to keep them on track. They’ll also need break with one of the best being playing with the family pet.

To maximize the effectiveness of your child’s study strategies, also find out what they are struggling with the most and consider giving them one-on-one time with a highly trained professional tutor.
