Tips for Creating a Great Learning Space

When each student sits down to complete their homework assignment or to study their textbooks and notebooks for an upcoming exam, their learning space plays a large part in just how effective their study session will be. Instead of your student studying on the couch in front of the TV, The Tutoring Center, Oro Valley (Oracle and Magee) has some tips to help you create a more learning-conducive learning space for your student.

Keep the Space Distraction Free

This can often seem as simple as removing your student’s cell phone during their study sessions. And while this is a great way to reduce distractions, noises like your own vacuuming, somebody mowing their lawn nearby, or even the sound of children playing in the backyard can be all that is needed to break your student’s attention. Take a look around your home and find a space which is free from any of these distractions and that is a quiet space. This could be your bedroom, your back deck area, or even your laundry room. Wherever the best space is for your student to study without distractions, consider setting this up as their temporary study space during their homework time.

What Do They Need?

One of the worst things that a student can do during their study period is to stop and get a glass of water or get some colored markers they need for a diagram. Why? Because it can take as much as 15 minutes for them to become re-engaged with their study material after they find where they left off and re-read the text to get back up to speed. For this reason, ask them to make a list of the items they will need for each study session throughout the week and be sure that it is all within reaching distance in the study space you find.

Lighting

Last, but certainly not least, is lighting. It can be easy to assume that a single bulb in the ceiling is sufficient to study, but it could actually be preventing them from learning as effectively as they could. Once you have found a space for them to study, consider installing a small desk lamp or even a standing floor lamp to adjust the lighting and make it easier for them to study. Consider that lighting that is too bright can make the text hard to read and cause headaches while lighting that is too dark can cause tiredness.
