Asked by Janet

High-achievers, what are your study habits/tips?

Water and stretching! 10 minutes loosening up literally creates space in your body to take in more information. Water keeps your head glued on too. Remember to keep up a good exercise routine for all of those endorphins to power you on. Extra tip - set timers to work 20 minutes on, 10 minutes off. Changes the game! Extra, extra tip (don’t tell anyone!) - read a small handful of your notes just before you go to sleep. Your brain has a magic absorbent power overnight. Trust me.

Before I went off to university, my dad gave me a tip. "Treat it like a job. Hit the books Monday through Friday 9-5. Work in the library, not your room or apartment. Don't miss a class. Work ahead during those 40 hours." I followed his advice to the letter. I never had to pull an all-nighter. I didn't have to cram for exams. I never got very stressed, despite attending a competitive university and completing a difficult degree.

Personally my best study habit was that whenever I sat down to try work I used my phone as a timer, and would set the timer for 40 minutes. This way I can’t go on my phone and after the 40 minutes I would take about a 10 minute break then would restart again. It’s really important you get breaks in and when you sit down to study you actually study and not wonder off into procrastination. Also give yourself small rewards. Eg if you meet your quota of revising two/three hours today treat yourself to whatever you enjoy be it ps4 or football etc If you do not meet your quota then be disciplined upon yourself and make sure you get your work done before you enjoy those treats.

I have 8 years professional experience across 5 sectors, including 5 years Teaching and 1 year in Journalism. During my professional career I have taught for two companies, across four centres providing me with an abundance of experience working with children and a deep understanding of learning techniques. Additionally I also have an understanding of the importance of relaying information to parents regarding progress to make sure all parties are up to date and in sync to a common goal.

Outside of my professional life I am a family oriented person who regularly spends time volunteering for different charities.
