Partnership for Student Success Having the appropriate study and organizational skills is essential for students to unlock their full potential. Regardless of grade level and learning style, all students require the knowledge on how to manage their time, prioritize their work, and maximize their capacity. In this presentation, you, as parents, will be given some tools that you can use and pass on to your children so as to assist them in augmenting their academic performance, whilst utilizing their study time efficiently, leaving room for recreation. You will be introduced to learning styles, roots of poor study habits and how to combat them, time-management techniques, note-taking, test-taking and memory skills, as well as counseling tips that will act as an enhancement to your child’s motivation to do well in school.
