Studying 101: 5 Effective Revision Tips

Subscribe to our YouTube Channel

In this month's episode of The Mindful Toolbox, we're talking about how children can revise more efficiently.

We dive in to the top revision methods that are scientifically proven to gain higher marks. We share how we, at Bettering Youth, use this knowledge to improve our 1-1 tuition sessions.

Instead of encouraging this exam culture, it's important to talk about and model a strong sense of self-care. By teaching our children how to set healthy boundaries now, we can be sure they will thrive in their futures.

I'd love to continue this conversation with you.
