Study Skills

Study skills are defined by Wikipedia as “approaches applied to learning.”  Study skills help students retain, recall and apply information they learn during class to all areas of their academic experience.  Developing good study skills is essential to achieving academic success.  Examples include:  

  • Organization.  Although it may not seem like a study skill at first, organizational skills help students manage their time and prioritize both of which are essential to studying and completing their school work effectively and efficiently.
  • Rote Memorization.  This study skill involves reviewing information repeatedly and memorizing it.  This technique has been criticized because students who use it learn information for the sake of learning it.  They do not learn how to apply it.
  • Note Taking.  Effective note taking is critical to helping students study for exams and complete assignments.  Taking good notes facilitates comprehension, retention and recall of information.
  • Mnemonics.  A mnemonic is a word or phrase designed to assist with the retention of information.  An example is Every Good Boy Does Fine, where the first letter of each word represents the notes on the five main lines of the treble clef.  Similar to mnemonics, acronyms like ROY G BIV (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) for the colors of the rainbow can also help students recall information.  
  • Study Groups.  Studying with a group of peers can help students analyze the material being studied, which improves critical thinking and reasoning skills.


Benefits of Good Study Skills

Students who take the time to develop good study skills will reap the benefits throughout their academic career.  Some of the benefits include:

  • Efficiency.  Students who have good study skills become more efficient in completing their assignments and preparing for exams, which saves valuable time they can use for other endeavors.
  • Improved performance.  Students who employ effective study skills are better able to retain, recall and apply information they learn in class.  As a result, they are typically more prepared in class, perform better on exams and other assignments and earn better grades.
  • Greater academic achievement.  Because good study skills typically translate to better grades, students who know how to study usually experience greater academic achievement than their counterparts who have not cultivated useful study skills.


Get Help With Study Skills

Although study skills are critical to achieving success in school, students are rarely taught these skills in the classroom.  As a result, students often have to learn how to study on their own.  Some use trial and error to find what works for them.  However, this can be time consuming, and students may not achieve the results they want while they look for the method that works best for them.  Others may speak with classmates to find out what strategies they find effective.  While these methods may eventually lead to a student finding a way to study that works for them, it is probably not the most effective or efficient use of time.  A study skills tutor can provide an individualized and customized approach to learning study skills.  With help from a private tutor, students will learn how to study and maximize their performance in school.
