There is no time like the present to get started using good study skills.
It doesn’t matter whether you are reading this in October 2016 – or later in the year or early next year, etc., etc.
The best time to start using solid strategies to help you succeed whether in school or in the workplace is right this moment. (Yes, I tutor adults who want to reach the next level or a totally different career as well as younger students.)
A lot of people manage to “talk themselves” out of getting started.
“Well, I’ll start next semester because it is better to start on the first day.”
“I might be able to start next month once I get rid of this pimple.”
“I’m waiting for the winter because then I don’t want to go outside that
much anyway, so I can study more.”
And on and on and on!
So, my recommendation is to avoid this kind of chatter and start a new one that gets you going.
“This morning, I am going to start taking notes.”
“This evening, I am going to review my notes and do a few math questions.”
“I am going to read my next science chapter using the SQ3R method.”
If you want more help to get started, don’t be shy in hiring a tutor – like me!
