If you keep doing the same things, you will keep getting the same results.
If you want different results you need to try new things.
This is true for everything in life including your academics and your education. So if you are not 100% pleased with your grades, or your SAT or ACT test scores, or your overall academic standing… you need to actively do something about it… and the sooner the better. So it’s a new year, and it’s the time for resolutions and fresh starts… so make the changes you need and get going in the right direction.
Here are questions that you need to ask yourself right now…
- Evaluate your study habits
Are you ‘efficient’ with your time?
Do you always finish projects that you begin?
Are you prepared for deadlines or are you always cramming?
Do you understand the material or just ‘get it’?
- Evaluate your time management
Do you plan ahead?
Do you follow plans that you do make or do you ‘freelance’?
Are you ready to hand in work or take tests when they are scheduled?
Do you have a calendar that you follow?
- Evaluate your information management
How do you track information?
Are your notes accessible? – Can you find what you need when you need it?
Are your notes consistent with your learning style – visual? auditory?
How many different ways do you know how to make an outline?
Are you using online and offline resources?
Evaluate your daily action plan
Are your days productive?
Do you complete all of your work?Most of your work?Some of you work?
Do you plan ahead and begin work on longer term projects?
Are you able to complete all of the work that you need to complete in the allotted time?
Do you plan for the following day each day?
Change has to begin by evaluating where you are and determining where you want to be… and then taking action to reach your goals.

It’s almost Christmas and Hanukah time… And while many are thinking about presents and all the seasonal celebrations, we are also approaching the winter break time. A time that students presume all that they have to do is sleep late and relax (which actually doesn’t sound all that bad does it?).
However – here are 12 things you can do to maximize your time over the break:
- Organize. You can organize you notebooks and your papers.
- Start to prep for midterms (or finals if you have block scheduling)
- Read. Pick a book(s) that you haven’t had time to get to and read it.
- Seniors – finish up any loose ends for college admissions
- Juniors – SAT / ACT prep. take a block of time and complete a full test
- Sophomores/Juniors – visit a college(s)
- Stimulate your mind- Do a crossword puzzle or sudoko every day
- Learn 12 new words – build your erudite vocabulary
- Work ahead. get a start on projects / book reports that are coming up
- Catch up on any missing / late work. Don’t lose points!!
- Read Maximum Education (www.maximumeducation.net)
- Set your goals for 2017

Lastly, plan ahead… midterms and finals and the winter SAT/ACTs are right around the corner.
If you are a high school junior – it’s GO TIME for test prep.
The best way to prep for an SAT or ACT is to become familiar with the test(s) and identify your areas of strength and weaknesses and then create plan to address your areas of need and to take advantage of your strengths.
A complete prep plan – for both the SAT and ACT – will include:
- Test taking strategies for all content
- Pacing Drills
- Hands on practice (and LOTS of it!)
- Remediation on academic areas (particularly in Math)
- Feedback to you the student, and parents / family
Your mAke the grAde test prep plan includes:
- Assessment of areas of need
- A complete diagnostic test(s)
- A plan based on your areas of need and your timetable and your goals
- Specific instruction for each area of the test for both SAT and ACT including Reading, Language and Math (SAT) and / or English, Math, Reading and Science (ACT)
- Prep for the Essay
- Abundant practice testing and hands on test experience
You will want to allow for 6-12 weeks to prepare for a SAT or ACT exam.
