How to Create a Productive Homework Area
Now that summer is ending, the first day of school is within sight. Be ready for the new school year by getting organized and being prepared to tackle all your new homework assignments. A great way to make sure you get your homework done
effectively and efficiently this year is by creating a personalized study area. The Tutoring Center in Long Grove
has some tips to help you build your own study area.
Get Rid of Distractions
Make sure your study area is free of distractions. The area should be quiet and far from distracting electronics, like televisions, cell phones and video games. If you need to use a laptop or a tablet to complete your work, make sure you keep distractions to a minimum. Make sure you family members know not to disturb your study time.
Gather the Necessary Supplies
In order to stay properly focused and working, make sure your study area has all the necessary supplies. You should have a stash of pens, pencils, eraser, paper and any other items you will need to complete your homework stored in your study area. Having the supplies within reach will help you stay concentrated and prevent having you run around the house looking for supplies.
...but not too comfortable. Your study area should be a spot where you feel relaxed and productive. Make sure your desk and chair are at the appropriate heights to avoid discomfort while working. Avoid doing work in areas that become too comfortable, like your bed, and cause your productivity to decline.
