On this tutoring tips episode, Alexis Avila talks about how to best organize your homework, how to best organize your backpack, how to best store your school papers at home, and how to best organize your desk.
You want to stay organized, especially when you start the school year, so you don’t fall behind.
Organizing your homework
The first thing you want to do is purchase an academic calendar with room to write notes in it. Make sure you take a look at all your assignments each day. Make a list of what needs to get done that week and prioritize the list by arranging them in order by due date. You want to look at your assignments and figure out how long it will take to accomplish each test.
Organizing your backpack
You want to make sure you carry only the textbooks and folders for the classes you have that day. You want to carry two black and blue ink pens, two pencils with erasers, a highlighter, a mini pencil sharpener, and a stack of blank index cards. Also, make sure you always keep your assignment notebook at the top of your pile for easy access, all right?
