With only two months until the Madison Metropolitan School District’s last day of school, it’s time to prepare for a strong finish to another academic year. While it’s easy to get distracted by end of the year activities and summer fever, students should stay focused on the end goal. Making a game plan for the final stretch is crucial, and encourages students to be proactive instead of putting off their responsibilities and procrastinating. In doing so, your child will realize the satisfaction of knowing they put in their best effort, and their summer vacation will be well deserved.
For students in local Wisconsin high schools or at the UW-Madison who will be taking final exams, remember the tried and true test taking strategies apply. Other than some serious studying and being fully prepared, staying relaxed and confident is the best approach. Private tutoring, however, can give any student a significant leg up during their year-end push. It could mean the difference between passing or failing, or even help the most motivated students achieve a near perfect score on their ACTs or SATs and truly stand out from the crowd. What matters most is the effort your child puts into their studies. In the world of academics, you truly reap what you sow.
