Poor Time Management Skills Can Ruin a Report Card

If it was to happen once, then you could chalk it up to a simple mistake. If it happens a second time, it’s worth keeping the thought in the back of your mind. Of course, if a third time rolls around where your student is rushing to complete an assignment that is due the next day, there is likely a cause for concern. The Tutoring Center, Garland TX have some further information, below. On the surface, these instances can appear like nothing more than teenage hormones doing their best to play with your child’s brain. This can lead parents to ignore the issue, accepting that the idea that as long as the assignment is handed in on time, it doesn’t matter how long it takes to do it. However, the opposite is true. Imagine a student who:
  • Enjoys their lessons and school
  • Attends class on time, every time
  • Asks as many questions as they need to
  • Writes as many notes as possible
  • Reviews their notes with the teacher
  • And, even shares their notes with classmates
A student like this seems on-track to achieve high marks should they be given an assignment on the subject, right? Once you add in an extra point, the outlook changes. Imagine that the student mentioned above also has poor time management skills. This student is now given an assignment on the subject. While this student has all of the learning resources and knowledge within easy access, instead of planning out their time effectively to make the most of the notes they recorded, they are instead rushing to complete the assignment in a matter of hours. More so, the hours they choose to complete the assignment are the very same hours that their brain has been trained to sleep. This leaves a gifted, talented, and smart student to turn in an assignment which doesn’t accurately reflect the work or the study hours they put in during the semester. Of course, as much as the teacher is aware of the work the student put in throughout the semester, they can only assign a grade based on the assessable projects handed in. Namely, your student’s rushed and incomplete work.
