During my time as a peer tutor I have worked with many students to improve their study skills. The areas of weakness that I commonly saw were an inability to effectively take notes, problems setting a proper study schedule/environment, trouble with finding a way to deconstruct material into small parts, disorganization and issues with finding a way making and using study materials. First, I help the students to find what type of learners they are. Then use that information to develop the most effective way to study. I demonstrate the use of outline format to take notes. Also, I encourage the use of different colored highlighters to differentiate important material. I work with the students to make their own materials to study, such as making flashcards and practice with diagrams by blacking out the answers and testing themselves. I help the students to organize themselves create binders with separators for each section. Finally, help students find the best study area and schedule for them.
