How to Create a Great Study Space at Home

Every time that a student sits down to complete their homework or review their notes for a test, the environment in which they are in has a great impact on how effective their study session will be. If your student currently reads their notes while watching TV or listens to their siblings play while completing their homework worksheets, The Tutoring Center, Pearland TX has a post below on how you can create a more learning-conducive study space.

Go Away Distractions!

The noise from the TV. The lawn being mowed outside. Even the sound of the washing machine. All of these share one thing in common - they are great distractions! For this reason, look for a study space which is free from all distractions. This could be something as simple as installing a temporary desk and a chair in your laundry room at the back of your house and designating it a no-go zone for a few hours each day or even closing off the whole upstairs area of your home during a study session. Whatever it takes to set your student up in a space free from distraction, consider it an option.

Supplies!

If they need measuring tools for a math worksheet, be sure it’s reachable. How about colored markers for diagrams? Make sure they’re close by! Whatever it is that your student will need to complete their study or homework session without leaving the space, be sure it’s accessible. Why is this so important? Each time that your student stops their studying to get an item, it can take as much as 15 minutes for them to re-read the information they were reviewing before they had to stop and to get back into a smooth learning momentum.

Lighting Environment

While a single light bulb in the ceiling may be enough to light the room, it isn’t necessarily the best light for your student to be studying in. If the light in the room is too bright then it can make the text hard to read and cause eye strain, while low-lighting can cause students to become weary and even take a nap! With this in mind, when choosing a quiet space, consider the lighting. Something as simple as installing some shutters or even buying a cost-effective portable desk lamp can be all it takes to make it easier for your youngster to study.
