Making Large Projects Manageable

As projects become bigger, students become more and more intimated by them. When this happens, students who are interested in a subject return home with lower than expected grades simply because the challenge got the better of them. To prevent this from happening with your learner, The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ has some information which can help.

Look for Smaller Tasks

When a student looks at a big project for the first time they see nothing but the end-goal. It is no wonder they feel intimidated. Sit down and show them how to look for smaller tasks. As an example, if your student needs to write a detailed and lengthy report on Abraham Lincoln, they could break down their research:
  • His early life
  • School performance and extra-curricular activities
  • Political Aspirations
  • Personal Life
  • Political Life
Once completed, this information can be combined to complete the report. The above is just an example, so don't try to stick too closely to it and adapt your smaller tasks to your own situation.

Time Management

Once you have the tasks set apart, think about how long it will take to complete each one. Once you know this, plan your study sessions accordingly. When a student finishes their section of study earlier than the scheduled time, it's considered a bonus and is either taken as social time or they begin a new section. Social media time is simply time wasted, and by not completing a section during the session, they waste valuable time during the next session.

Don't Lose Hope

The longer it takes to complete a project or report, the more likely that the quality will reduce. To prevent this, help keep your student's momentum up with small rewards. For example, a trip out for ice cream or cooking their favorite dinner for each milestone they pass.
