Tips to Help You Create a Learning Conducive Study Space

There are many aspects which determine the effectiveness of your youngster’s study sessions. The space they use is one of them. If your youngster sits on the couch while revising their notes or watches you cook as they read their textbooks then their environment isn’t conducive to learning. Below is a great post from The Tutoring Center, Miramar FL on how you can create a better study space for your student.

No Distractions

When it comes time to think about distractions, your first thoughts are likely of your child's phone or laptop notifications. While these are worthy distractions, they aren’t always the worst. Sounds like vacuuming their study space or people coming-and-going during their study time are just two distractions which work against your student as they try to study. Look for space which is out of the way and consider the noises around it. For example, if your laundry room has space and is at the back of your house, consider setting up what your student needs in that space for a set period of the day with a house rule that nobody goes into that part of the house. Of course, if you have any other spaces which you think can work, consider them.

Everything They Need

The worst thing that a student can do during a study session is get up ‘to just get a glass of water’ or ‘to just get a pen.’ Why? Because there is a good chance that they won’t make their way back into the room, and if they do, you can bet that they have lost their train of thought and need to start their revision again. To combat this, be sure to include everything they need when creating their space. This could be as simple as a desk and chair right through to a desk lamp, colored markers, a measuring set, and more. Whatever they need to complete their studies, be sure it’s accessible in their study space.

Lighting

Continuing on from the point above, be sure that there is adequate lighting in the study space. If the lighting is too low then it can cause your youngster to feel tired, whereas bright light can cause headaches and make it difficult to read. Consider the lighting in the space you are using and think about how you can improve it.
