MURFREESBORO – As families across the country trade beach days for school days, Sylvan Learning of Murfreesboro knows it’s time to get into the back to school mindset.
With each grade level, homework assignments get tougher, workloads get heavier and staying ahead of the curve becomes more challenging.
“There comes a point in every child’s education when the sophistication of a subject can’t be grasped immediately. We typically see this as students move through middle school and high school where more advanced study skills are needed to succeed,” said Ann Thomas, owner of Sylvan Learning located in Murfreesboro.
“We’ve found that establishing great study habits is the secret to making a big impact on a student’s performance,” she added.
While it’s often a part of the academic journey that’s overlooked, Sylvan Learning of Murfreesboro has seen how mastering effective study skills can be the “secret behind the A,” turning good students into great students.
