Study Skills For Students
How Gemm Can Improve Learning Efficiency
Student study skills require proficiency in a number of areas, particularly in middle school and high school, where learning independence is not only expected, it is required. Learning difficulties that can undermine study skills include:
- Weak listening comprehension in class
- Reading speed, accuracy comprehension issues
- Inability to focus in class or at home
- Lack of organization skills
- Eroding academic confidence
While homework assignment and study stress is common, the sources of weak study skills are many and varied. For younger children, it is often a maturity issue and just part of growing up. While a homework tutor can be helpful, the best course of action is to help your child learn how to study effectively with one on one guidance.
For many children though, especially in middle and high school when maturity should be less of an issue, study skill difficulties are more likely an indication of deeper issues. They are not a sign of laziness or lack of interest. Rather, they are symptomatic of cognitive weaknesses, many of which can be improved. In these cases a parent needs to be part detective, part mentor, to get to the true difficulty.

Improve Study Skills
Gemm Learning helps study skills for middle and high school students, using Fast ForWord, online learning software, to strengthen underlying fundamental skills.
Concentration and Comprehension In Class
If the teacher is speaking at 50 miles per hour and your child can only process language at 45 miles per hour, there is a problem. We use Fast ForWord at home anywhere in the US and Canada to overcome auditory processing problems and related attention stamina and memory retention difficulties. This makes it easier to follow the teacher, not only in absorbing the content of the day's lesson, but also in fully understanding the homework assignments.
