Math Help in Honolulu, HI.

All teachers will tell you that preparing for exams is crucial to succeeding on them. However, many parents don’t know how they can help. Below is an article with ideas to help.

Many parents share the thought that if they can’t understand the homework that their children bring home each night, how can they help them prepare for the respective exams? While it may seem like an impossible task, there are many non-tutoring activities parents can do to help their students prepare for upcoming exams.

How to Help Your Child Prepare for Exams

If you are a parent who wants to help their child prepare for a physics exam but you struggle to understand your child's physics textbooks, The Tutoring Center, Honolulu, HI has prepared the following post with easy-adopt-tips.

Is Your Child Eating the Correct Foods?

As much as they may think it is the case, sugary snack foods and soda aren't a good diet for a studying child. Sure, they may feel more awake and alert, but their brain isn’t getting the nutrients it needs to both concentrate fully and absorb the information they are attempting to learn. This problem can be tacked in two ways.
  1. Instead of stocking your fridge or pantry with snack foods, prepare healthy and brain-fueling foods for your child to enjoy during their study periods. Foods like fresh fruit and even peanut butter with carrots can be a great way to sneak in a healthy snack as they prepare for an exam.
  2. Many students can often forget to eat meals entirely or believe that eating a meal is less time they can study. However, the reality is that an empty stomach leads to nothing but a brain which can’t concentrate or learn. Encourage your child to sit down and eat a healthy meal each night they are studying, possibly by cooking their favorite meals on these nights. Even if they seemingly inhale the food before rushing back into their study room, their stomachs will be full which means their brain will be fueled.

Are They Getting Enough Sleep?

If your child isn’t sleeping and is, instead, pulling all-nighters in which they are glued to their textbooks, help them adjust their schedule to allow for a solid sleep each night. While they may think that the more time spent studying means the more they will learn, the truth is that when a child is asleep, their brain processes the information learned throughout the day and converts it to recallable memory. Without this downtime, they could be spending hours learning lessons which aren’t going to be accessible once they sit down to an exam.

Consider Fewer Chores

Chores are an important lesson in responsibility, however, if your child’s daily or weekly chores are getting in the way of their studying and sleeping then it can be worth considering reducing their chores for a short period of time. Do this as long as they use the extra time wisely, of course. When doing this, be sure that you don't remove all of their chores. This can result in them becoming comfortable with a life without chores and cause problems when exams are over and they need to take on their full chore-load again.

Don't Forget to Plan

With so much happening in school, students can easily forget about upcoming exams until it’s too late, leading them to try to cram as much information into their brains as possible within a week or even just days. With your student, find out when their upcoming exams are, even if they are months away, and work out, using a calendar or a planner, when they will study for each exam. This can not only help them to ensure that they get sufficient study time in before they sit the exam, but it also prevents them from forgetting about exams until it’s too late.

Learn the Lesson

After each study period, ask your child to sit down, maybe over a snack or some dessert, and tell you about the lessons they have just learned. This works even if you can’t understand any of what they are saying. Speaking out loud and trying to teach somebody something is a great way for children to self-correct any mistakes they have made and can also work to improve lesson retention.
