Boost  Your Child's Note Taking Skills

A great follow up to our previous article on improving your child's memory is also giving their note taking skills a boost.  Whether your child has upcoming exams or you just feel their notes aren't as thorough as you know they can be, The Tutoring Center, Sandestin has a few tips to share.

What Does It Say?

The next time your child comes home from a day where you know they've had a lecture or tutorial session, ask to take a look at their notes. If you can't understand a word it says, and they aren't able to help much themselves, it's time to write clearer. While it's true they can often read their own writing better than you, if, when challenged, they aren't able to recite them, it's time for help.

Can You Hear That?

Do you find that your child doesn't seem to take many notes at all? While it can be easy to assume they're disinterested, it could be that they are better able to utilize audio notes.  Download a note-recording app on their phone or get them a dedicated dictator and see if that helps. You may just find that once your child is able to listen, rewind, and repeat lessons as revision, their exams and grade scores increase.

Where Did You See Them Last?

One of the most common reasons that parents hear from their children not using their notes is that they simply can't find them. Instead of paper based notes taking, swap it out for an online service that lets your child access and edit their notes using their personal devices, anywhere they are. One of the great additional benefits to keeping their notes online is that they are able to share access with you, letting you check in to see how their note taking is going while also giving you more insight into their schooling.
