Study Skills Workshops
It is my experience that I can tutor classroom content until I am blue in the face, and that in itself may raise a student’s grade 10% to 15% for their next exam, but if I work on developing a daily homework routine, note taking skills and classroom confidence with a student, the effects will be lasting whether I see them once or regularly.Paul Kinkaide Owner & Tutor Success 2000 Study Centres
Study Skills and Test Taking Strategies are approaches applied to learning. Mastery and regular use of these skills is vital to achieving success in school. The use of these skills is considered essential for acquiring good grades and are indispensible throughout one's life. Based on our experiences working with students in St. Albert and the surrounding communities for the past 20 years, we have noticed that many students have little knowledge of how to use study skills to their advantage. Learning how to study effectively, how to organize time and materials, or how to take complete and detailed notes efficiently are all skills that need to be learned and practiced to achieve success.
Our Study Skills Workshops are offered on the first and/or last Thursday of each month (except June). The program’s flexibility allows you to pick and choose which workshops you would like to attend. The workshops are designed to be useful for all ages of learners from grade 6 to adult.
