Math Help in Honolulu, HI.

04/11/2018
Are you sure that your youngster is getting the most out of their homework sessions? Do they always seem to be distracted when completing their reviews? This article has tips which can help.

Each time that a student sits down to complete their homework or to study for an upcoming exam, the environment in which they study has a significant impact on the effectiveness of their study session. For this reason, it’s important for all parents to ensure that their youngsters are studying in a learning conducive space.

How to Create a Learning Conducive Study Space

If your student currently revises their notebook while sitting in front of the TV or talks to you in the kitchen while they complete their times' tables, then below is a post from The Tutoring Center, Honolulu HI which can help you create a better learning space for your youngster.

Distraction Free Environment

The first thing which comes to your mind when you hear about your student being distracted is their cell phone. And while this is a worthy inclusion on the list of distractions, it isn’t at all the most prominent. Believe it or not, there are many more distracting things happening in your home while they study and you may even be the cause! Items like:
  • The sound of the vacuum cleaner outside the door
  • Their siblings playing in the yard
  • The microwave or oven making a range of noises
  • A lawnmower being used outside
  • People coming and going from your home
Of course, the list goes on but you get the idea. While they may not seem like it to you, small things like the above can be enough to draw your youngster's attention from their study material, losing not only valuable time but also learning momentum. For this reason, take a tour of your home and identify a space which is large enough for your student to use for their studying. When looking for space, don’t resign yourself to the regular areas such as their bedroom or even a spare room. For example, if you have a large laundry room at the back of your home which doesn’t see a lot of foot traffic or noise during the time your youngster is usually studying then you can consider installing a temporary desk and chair for them to use. Similarly, if you have an outdoor deck area which is quite peaceful, instill a rule to prevent other family members or guests from entering the outdoor portion of your home during your student's study time to give them a peaceful space to learn and prepare. If your student is struggling with their homework, tutoring in Honolulu, HI can help.

Do They Have What They Need?

Do you remember that aerobics class you took 35 years ago which you left to ‘just get a drink of water’? How about that puzzle you started but never finished because you left ‘just for a snack’? The reason why it was so easy to leave these tasks incomplete is because you needed to get something. And while your youngster may not be undertaking aerobics, the same rule applies. Each time that you prepare your student’s study space, ensure that they have everything they need within reaching distance. This could include:
  • Markers
  • Colored pencils
  • Measuring equipment
  • Calculators
  • Craft instruments
  • Reference books
Of course, if your student has any requirements then be sure they tell you. Creating a small basket which you use to keep all of these items is a great idea as it allows you to make sure everything they need stays together.

How Do They Look?

Don’t worry - this isn’t going to be a lesson in lighting. However, the right lighting does matter for a student. If the lighting in their study space is too dim then it can cause them to lose focus and even fall asleep. On the other hand, if the light is too bright then it can become difficult for them to read the text on the page and even cause headaches and eye strain. Once you have chosen your space and it has been furnished with the required items, consider the lighting. Simple ideas like installing shades or even just using a floor lamp from your living room can be all that’s needed to improve the lighting in the room and to make it easier for your student to study.
