BETTER STUDYING HABITS IN THE NEW YEAR! by Natalie Alamdar Edu World Tutors • 407-413-3961 The new year brings a time to start fresh. If your New Year’s resolution is to help your student or even yourself get better grades, follow these simple tips to get on the path: Learn your learning style. There are many types of learning styles: visual, auditory, logical, verbal, solitary and social. It’s important to know your learning style, as it will help to make studying come easier if you are learning in the style that best fits you. Create a routine. Make studying a part of the routine you do daily. Don’t wait until three days before an exam to cram. Along with having a quiet space, structuring your time and prioritizing your tasks, make time and be flexible with your daily schedule to include a small amount of studying each day.

Consider finding a tutor who fits your learning style, and schedule an appointment if you need that little push to help you get the grades. THE BENEFITS OF HORMONAL RESTORATION by John C.
