Over the last few months I’ve had dozens of students join my program. For those of you that don’t know; when I sit down with a student for the first time by phone or over skype I ask that they have 3 pieces of information prepared for me.
- The courses they took last semester
- The courses they are taking this semester
- Their top three frustrations with University
With this information I’m usually able to match new students with a tutor that work relatively well with them. During this initial interview I really get to the core of what they are about. Many students don’t stop to realize what kind of problems they really have with university until I force them into confronting there demons by laying out exactly what their problems are. Therefore to help more students, I’m going to introduce a new series into effective study skills where I share the frustrations many of my students faced and how they conquered them.
During this series I will be concentrating on students’ individual case studies and how they are succeeding in speeding less time studying and getting higher grades
