A Guide to Learning at Home

  • Set your Space – Find an area in your house where you can sit comfortably and focus. Make it separate from your relaxation space. Ideally away from a TV screen or other distractions.
  • Lessen Distractions – Harness your imagination and picture that you’re at school and not at home. Lock your phone away if you need to. Don’t be afraid to ask your parents to intervene.
  • Change It Up – You probably have a schedule for your lessons, but if things are becoming difficult to focus on, take a 5-minute break and come back to it.
  • Take Notes – Stuck in a webinar zoning out? Note taking keeps your mind engaged.
  • Journal It – Use a journal to track your progress or ask any questions you might want to ask your teacher about the work.
  • Plan Your Day – If you have one, follow the schedule provided by your school. If you just have a list of things to study, break it down into tasks and plan to do the hardest ones when you have the most energy.
  • Speak up and Ask for Help – When things get tough, don’t just push through it. Ask your parents, or reach out to your teacher.
  • Take Breaks – Get up once in a while. Have a snack.
