What students will walk away with: 

  • We want to trigger the creativity and intrinsic motivation of students when getting ready for exams. 

  • At the beginning of the first day we will create collaboratively with the student a revision schedule for the whole week. 

  • Each day the student will focus on a different subject to review

We have selected a variety of simple but very efficient techniques which can be applied by each student immediately and need no additional reading or instructions.

1)     We will cover memory techniques, dealing with procrastination, best practice tools as shown in research, and how to be most effective when mastering tough subject areas.

2)     Each student will identify his/her strengths and weaknesses. These discoveries will help him/her learn more effectively. 

3)     Academically strong students will benefit from tips and tricks to help make the best use of time when working on homework or studying for exams.

4)     For students who struggle with time management and study skills, we offer a structured package of practical techniques which will walk them through step by step to get them back on track.

5)     In the last part of our training, students will work together in groups and learn how to use a ‘group study setting’ effectively for themselves and therewith profit from it academically.
