How to Help Your Child Prepare for an Exam

With the ever increasing complexity of education, it can appear difficult to help your child with their exams. For this post, The Tutoring Center, Wichita has two easy ways for you to help your child prepare for their exams.

Keep Their Brains Fueled

When your child studies, their brains are only as productive as the fuel inside them. The foods you provide your children can play a great part in helping them retain knowledge for an exam.
  • During your child's study sessions, make sure that you have some tasty and brain fueling snacks prepared for their breaks. When shopping next, look for naturally sweetened snacks and candy that provide a consistent level of energy throughout the day to help your child stay on track.
  • The morning before an exam, make sure that your child overcomes their nerves and eats a full breakfast. While butterflies in the stomach can prevent many students from eating, making sure they eat the fuel now so that it's ready to fuel their brain in a few hours during the exam is crucial.

What Kind of Notes Is Your Child Taking?

With all exams, notes are going to play a crucial part in recalling and piecing together information when it's needed.
  • When your child returns home from their next study lesson or lecture, ask to read their notes and give them a quick read. If you find any inconsistencies, ask your child for clarity on them. If they aren't able to recall what the note is about, then this may be a sign they could benefit from tutoring in Wichita.
  • Give them a quiz once they've finished studying. Using their notes, choose a random page or fact and quiz them on it. Consider yourself their exam and ask follow up questions to better prepare them to provide extended answers.
