Study Skills“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” – Chinese Proverb

Have you noticed that the best students seem to always have their own consistent method of learning and revision? Whether by taking relevant notes, managing time effectively, or expertly researching more information, these important study skills extend beyond the classroom and into everyday life. Study habits may require discipline to learn and master, but once a child finds his own preferred set of strategies that work, they can be life-changing.

Here at Big Brains Education, we help your child to learn better, faster and happier. Regardless of whether your child is a visual, audio or tactile learner, our expert tutors are here to impart valuable learning secrets and good habits to ensure that your child finds success in school assignments, college curricula, job searches, and on-the-job performance.

We provide concrete actionable techniques that your child can see working immediately, and with consistent practice throughout the year, our experienced tutors are here to guide your child in putting theory into practice.
