As a parent of high school or college students, you know that the next few years of their lives are crucial to their futures. How they perform in school can determine their career success, financial security, and overall happiness. The confidence and skills that come from scholastic achievements can build the foundation for a successful professional life, and give them the strength to conquer challenges. Wisdom of Learning uses research-backed methods that are proven to teach crucial skills like how to study for a test or how to take a test. These basic skills help students succeed in college or school by improving test performance. And that will further boost confidence, overcome anxiety, and generate success in many ways in the future. If your student is losing interest in school or career plans, missing classes, and underperforming in school, it is possible that educational anxiety could be to blame. Confidence in academic performance is integral to a student’s success. If a student has anxiety, his or her confidence will suffer, making it very hard for that student to overcome academic challenges. Test anxiety is usually caused by “poor preparation,” meaning that students are lacking basic skills like how to study for a college exam that are needed to learn and meet the challenges of a course. When this happens, students can’t compete with their peers, and quickly become discouraged and anxious.
We keep it simple
For most students, there is either a limit of time, focus, or patience, or a combination of all three. Yes, there are a flood of “helpful test taking tips” on the Internet and elsewhere.
