As a parent, you want the best for your teen.
Once they finish school and eventually leave the nest, you want them to thrive, to be successful, and to be happy.
For most people, the likelihood of these three things becoming reality has a lot to do with the person they are when they leave school. School prepares us for the big wide world and equips us with many of the skills we need to make the most of life’s opportunities.
And whilst there can be exceptions, most of the time it’s the students who do well at school who get to choose what College and what course they want to get into.
It’s these students who get to choose what career path they want to pursue.
They’re the ones that get to decide what sort of life they want for themselves.
Ultimately it will be your teen’s ability to learn that determines the level of academic success they reach at school.
Unfortunately many students who are perfectly capable aren’t getting even close to reaching their academic potential. What’s that about?! Well they’ve got the potential – that’s not the problem.
The problem is they haven’t been taught what to do with all of the information that’s loaded onto them at school. They haven’t been taught how to study.
Is your teen doomed to fail?
Whilst studying comes to some teens very easily, it’s not a given. Yet we all treat it like one! We seem to expect our kids to understand how to study inherently.
The reality is, studying is a learnt skill.
Some teens have a natural aptitude towards studying more than others, but at the end of the day – studying is a skill just like any other, meaning it can be learnt. Just like learning to play a sport or a musical instrument, studying can be learnt and practiced.
When we were thirteen we didn’t know how to study! We were just lucky that the studying process came pretty naturally to us as we went along.
If your teen is struggling at school or just doesn’t seem to be taking to studying easily, they’re just going to need a bit more help, that’s all!
We’ve both got seven years (Chris actually has eight…) of tertiary exam experience behind us, so naturally some of what we’ve learnt can only be achieved with the passing of time, but the most important study skills we’ve obtained easily be taught to YOUR teen today.
We had to wait until the end of university before we understood how to nail exams, but your teen can learn right now.
We’ve bottled everything we know about studying and succeeding in an academic capacity so that your teen can start reaching their academic potential TODAY.
