The study environment your child uses to work in could be harming his or her study habits and therefore academic success. It is important to remember that all children are different and that a study environment that works for one child may not work for another. Therefore, it’s important to keep in mind these three steps, brought to you by The Tutoring Center in Hillsborough, as you are helping to ensure your child is in the best place for studying and doing homework. 

Consider Your Child’s Personality as well as Preferences

  • Know your child’s learning style and use that to help pick a place.
  • Likewise, be aware if your child is suffering from a learning disability or coping with anxiety.
  • If your child benefits from some background noise or being around people, consider a nook in the kitchen or dining area where he or she can be close to, but not surrounded by, other people.
  • If your child works best in silence with no distraction, consider allowing him or her to use the bedroom or an office or study you may have in your home.

Establish Rules for the Study Area

  • Determine and stick with rules about what kind of background noise should be allowed.
  • If you know that your child can handle music, but not the television, make that a rule.
  • Allow your child to make a study schedule and set study times up with a calendar.
  • Ensure that your child is not interrupted in this area.

Ensure that it is Permanent and Comfortable 

  • You will want to ensure that whatever area your child chooses will work for you and your family in the long term, as you don’t want him or her to have to pick a new space daily.
  • Provide your child with a comfortable place to sit and have all of the supplies he or she will need close by and easily within reach.
