Overcoming Large Projects

Every student learns through experience that the higher the education level, the larger the projects and reports become, and with good reason. More challenging tasks push a student to excel and reach their potential. Some students, however, become intimidated by large projects, leaving them to perform less than their best. If this sounds like a student in your home, The Tutoring Center, Plano TX has some tips which can help.

Break It Down

No, this isn't a lesson in 90's rap. This is about making a larger, seemingly unachievable task seem manageable. When an uninitiated student is given a large project, that is the only thing they can see - a large project. Of course, a large project is just a combination of smaller and more easily completed tasks, which is what you can help your student to see.

Make the Most of the Time You Have

Study sessions are often limited by busy schedules, so it is important to make the most of them. Once you have your separate tasks, consider how long it will take to complete each one and assign it to a study period of similar length. Removing the instances of broken tasks means that students aren't spending the first 10-15 minutes of the next study session trying to remember where they are up to.

Don't Get Stuck

It can be easy to get lost in the process and feel like you aren't making any progress. For this reason, it is important to keep your student's momentum up with regular rewards. For example, if they complete a large portion of a speech or they finish a visual aid they will be using, consider a trip to the mall for a treat or even let them choose the movie next family-night.
