At Sapneil Tutoring, we understand how studying can sometimes be a very involved process. Which is why we wanted to take a minute and share with you what we consider to be effective studying habits for students of all ages. Whether you are in high school studying for the SAT/ACT or in college attempting to gain acceptance into graduate school – We believe the following Effective Study Tips will help you stay more focused and bring you one step closer to achieving your goals.
- KEEP THE DISTRACTORS AWAY! That means cell phones/tablets/laptops in particular. For students, this is just another tool that can be distractive while studying. So use the following rule: bring everything you need and nothing you don’t. Ask yourself if you ABSOLUTELY need the device to study, if you don’t then leave it at home. We are positive that you won’t need Facebook/Twitter/Instagram while studying 😉 !
- Figure out what works for you. Some students can study with an iPod playing music, some need absolute silence. Finding the right environment is key – where can you be comfortable yet productive? Where will there be the least amount of distractions? We recommend the library or your local coffee

A victim of the big box tutoring companies, Sapneil found himself in his earlier years stuck in these large classes of about 30-40 students with no accountability from the tutor, let alone the tutoring company. How can one class focused on tutoring broadly cater to the individual student? Well, it doesn’t.
For those of you that did take a group tutoring class with one of these big box companies, did you ever take a diagnostic exam BEFORE the class began? Of course you didn’t. Your …Read More
