Ready for 2013?

By now you’ll be well into a lovely long break over Christmas and New Year. It’s important to have some downtime but this is also a great time to reflect on how the year has gone and if your first term back at school has been enjoyable and successful.

Now is a great time to set some resolutions for the new year and start back in 2013 on a positive note.

  1. Think (honestly) about how the first term has gone. Now is a good time to stop and decide if you have put in the right amount of effort or if things need to change slightly. If you don’t know whether you are on track then ask your teacher, parent or tutor.
  2. Don’t forget to focus on what you have done well instead of everything that has gone wrong.  This is the perfect time to make changes without it affecting your whole academic year.
  3. Where would you like to be by Easter? If there is one area you need help with then it’s a good time to start working with a private, one to one tutor who can focus on that topic and build your confidence.
  4. Do you cope well with your work during the year? What we often hear from our students is that they actually really enjoy their subjects but they struggle with planning and organising their study and leisure time. You need time for yourself (even when you are revising) and the best way to get this is to plan out your study time and leave gaps for rest and relaxation.
  5. Talk to someone. Christmas is a really relaxed time and a good time to share concerns with a friend, parent or tutor.

We hope you all have a great Christmas and fantastic 2013. If you’d like to know more about our one to one private tutoring in Manchester, Stockport, Sale, Altrincham and Trafford, Heaton Mersey and local areas then drop us a line.
