There is a huge difference between a teacher in the secondary syllabus (a content expert) and a study skills expert for secondary students. I am a study skills expert and I want to provide you with 5 basic methods of study, justify and provide examples on how they can be accomplished. You can do this, as parents, if you have the know-how of the intricacies of teaching. Some of us are teachers whose expert area is sharing the content of a syllabus. Others of us who have further training, have the know-how of working with effective study skills and penmanship skills.
