Procrastination is a common word these days. It’s basically postponing tasks that demand immediate attention, just to do those that are more pleasant. Nowadays, it’s even more easy to be distracted - your children have laptops, social media, cell phones and many other things that can easily divert their attention.

If the study habits of your children are not the best, this summer vacation is the perfect opportunity to improve them! That’s why, at The Tutoring Center in Lansdale, we tell you a few tips to avoid procrastination.

Study Environment 

The place where your children do their work is very important. Make sure to find a quiet space where they have all the school supplies they need. Also, provide them a comfortable chair for a good study posture. It’s fundamental that you remove any potential distractions during study time.

Create a Schedule

Time management is very important to beat procrastination. You and your child should sit together and create a work schedule. Remember to set goals and estimate how much time your child needs to accomplish each task. Calendars or daily planners are good ideas to achieve it!

Rewards

Remember that attention spans are limited, so you will have to schedule some time off. Make sure to plan a small break after your children finish a task. That way, their progress and effort will be rewarded.

Tutoring 

Not knowing how to take notes, how to concentrate during class or handle test anxiety are also parts of the problem. Tutoring can assess the academic strengths and weaknesses of your children and help them improve!

Procrastination can negatively affect the success of your children in school. Fortunately, there is a lot you can do to help them!
