"We show the importance of planning," says Kennedy, who has four Sylvan franchises in the Lower Mainland.
What that planning means is getting kids to become independent learners who develop and utilize successful study habits.
"Basically it comes down to understanding material," Kennedy says. By cramming, "you are only learning for the short term. Then you have to learn it all again."
Kennedy says success is bolstered through practice and motivation.
Motivation can be test results or something even more appealing to a teenager.
"Another big motivation is to say to them, 'You know, if you are more organized with your time you will have more time for leisure activities,' she says. "They like that one."
Kennedy offers up three key components to becoming a better student.
1. Set up a study schedule. Set weekly and daily goals. If you are not organized find a friend who is and ask them to help you plan.
2. Think about your learning style. It's about self awareness and utilizing your sensory systems.
Visual learning means you like to see the material, so flash cards, highlighting passages and thinking about a topic as a movie will help.
Auditory learning means you learn best through hearing the material, so say things out loud and record things to playback.
Tactile-learning types tend to get better results by writing things out.
Once you know your learning style, find the right environment to study in.
Visual types are better alone. Auditory learners do well in a group study environment. Tactile learners like to move around.
3. Identify resources to help you study better.
Kennedy points to the Ministry of Education's website (www.bced.
gov.bc.ca/exams), which has previous exams available. That will help lessen surprises on exam day.
A final note from Kennedy is to be prepared. Show up to the exams with the right equipment, pens, pencils, paper, eraser, watch etc. You don't need to add extra stress to the day by having to scrounge around for a pencil.
