The strategy is always an essential thing for everything to make productive work. As studying is the most essential thing for the human being. So, to make it effective is also most essential strategy. Here are top strategies for study:

Time Management: 

Time is the continuous process. It never stops and no one can stop it. There is time for everything. The right thing done in right time is best strategies to be successful and to achieve a goal in life. Time changes a person from a child to adult and old man/woman. Since the child born, they need to be taught properly; childhood is the best time to learn and study. Parents need to understand to them. If the child has any problem, they need to find out and cure on time. If they have any problem in learning, they need to consult with a tutor. They need to arrange home tuition to improve their study and learning to make better. Today, to find out home tuition provider in Singapore is easy. They don’t need to worry too much to find the tutor, the tuition agency can find the best tutor required for them. Here are more suggestions for time management:
  • Write down important dates for exams, assignments and other projects on a calendar.
  • Make a task list to keep tracks of things you need to do on daily basis.
  • Break large tasks into smaller pieces that can be completed within a few hours.
  • Plan our time to include doing things that you enjoy.
  • Be patient and flexible. If certain time management strategies don’t work for you, try a different strategy.


Listening and Note-taking: 

Listening and note-taking is an important thing in learning and study. Students should have a note writing pad always with them. No one can remember everything they listened for all time. After some time, this is human nature to forget the thing. If the listening thing is noted on your notepad, you can look it back when it is necessary. Here are some bits of advice for the Listening and Note-taking:
  • Find out how you will be evaluated on the material from tutors.
  • Be prepared before the class, do research, look the chapters for that day and bring the material that you need in the class.
  • Don’t hesitate to ask your tutor if you do not understand in the class. If you are at home, write down the question and ask your tutor next time when you see him/her. Good tutor never minds, they are always happy to answer anytime.
  • Turn off all your electronic gadget while you are having tuition.
  • Concentrate towards tutor while tutor is teaching. Sit where you can hear and see everything you need to.
  • Compare your notes with your study partner on regularly and identify what you need to add or remove.
  • Review your notes on a weekly basis to prepare in advance for exams.


Textbook Reading: 

A textbook is a vital material for the student. This is the basic need for the student for learning according to their level. It is designed and prepared according to the student level and years. The student should read their textbook regularly. Here are few suggestions:


  • Find out how you will be evaluated on your knowledge of the readings. Do you need to know the textbook inside out? Or is textbook a supplement to the tutors.
  • Follow the reading strategies: skimming, scanning and in-depth methods. These can be good reading strategies, depending on the courses.
  • Find a quiet and comfortable place to read so that you can understand what you are reading.
  • To visualize the whole chapter, preview the reading by noting the subtitles and headings, looking at diagrams and skimming through the introduction and summary.
  • Review the notes from your readings regularly to keep them fresh in your memory. 




Exam Preparation: 

The exams are the final test for your progress in your study. The student who is prepared always score the best in the exam. An exam is the test of student performance in his/her classroom. It is also depended upon the good tutors. If the tutor is good, the performance is good as well. So, I always advise you to choose the best tutor if you are taking tuition to improve your study. I have few more advice for exam preparation:
  • Locate the best place for studying where is quiet and comfortable to study.
  • Review the notes from tutors and the notes prepared by yourself.
  • Practice questions based on old exams, especially maths. Lean by doing. For non-maths subjects, prepare your own answers.
  • Study with a group if that work for you, but choose the study partner that is good for both in term of knowledge and commitment to the course.
  • During the exam, focus on what you do know rather than what you wish you had more time studying. Take a long breath in a certain interval. It helps you relax.

What should you do and don't while tutoring your tutee?


A tutor is an instructor who gives home tuition and a private lesson to students who are struggling in subjects. If pupils are not able to solve questions from their books, tutors should not give answers right away but rather come up with a reasonable and understandable explanation as to how questions can be solved step by step. Whether you are an experienced tuition teacher or about to undertake your very first lesson, you want to make a positive first impression. The purpose of this blog post is to give you a brief idea of things you should do and don't while tutoring your student.

DO's

  1. Give the tutee your undivided attention. Be open, friendly and patient.
  2.  Ask good probing questions instead of questions that can be answered with a “yes” or “no”.     
  3.  Have the tutee explain tuition assignments, ideas, concepts and summarize the tutoring sessions.
  4.  Help your tutee discover and develop learning strategies effective for her/him.
  5.  Be a role model. Always arrive on time for each session and be prepared
  6.  Plan your tutoring sessions and review materials if necessary.
  7.  Check if the tutee has a syllabus for the course being tutored. Ask questions and make sure the tutee understands the course requirements, professor’s expectations,  grading policy and is aware of professor’s office hours. 
  8.  Make sure that your tutee actively participates in every stage of a session.
  9.  Explain concepts clearly that students have difficulty understanding
  10.  Use alternate methods and examples to explain content and help students  understand
  11.  Try to identify and accommodate the tutee’s preferred learning style when possible.
  12.  Identify Student's weakness and strengths.
  13.  Help students become more independent as they go along


DON’Ts          

  1.  Do not do your tutee’s homework or other assignments.
  2.  Do not try to be a therapist or a counsellor. You are not expected to solve all the problems of your tutee. 
  3.  Do not get frustrated or impatient if the tutee is not making the progress you are expecting.
  4.  Do not make your tutee feel discouraged.
  5.  Do not make decisions for the tutee.
  6.  Do not concentrate only on weaknesses and forget to point out progress and improvement.
  7.  Do not allow your tutee bring his/her friend(s) to the tutoring sessions.
  8.  Do not speculate about the grade a paper will receive or should have received
  9.  Do not lose sight of the ultimate goal of tutoring: the student’s academic independence
