Tutoring Tips for High-Achieving Students

Students should learn strategies to become independent and effective learners as well as how to manage their time and activities, both in school and outside it.

They should know how to implement effective note taking strategies and how to use study tools, such as flash cards and color coding, to study efficiently and improve test scores. Learn to work smarter, not just harder!
