Organization. Time management. Study skills.

These are the three critical skills students need to perform well in school. Most students lack at least one of these skills; many lack all three. Yet without a sound understanding of this all-important learning trifecta, students are likely to fail—over and over again.

In this practical hands-on guide, Thinking Caps founder Alexandra Mayzler outlines the unique approach that has made her one-of-a-kind tutoring program such a success with students, parents, and educators alike. This interactive program steps your child through these crucial three areas, providing the worksheets, exercises, and anecdotes she needs to master them in record time. The book also features stories throughout, based on case studies of real-life clients.

Special emphasis is placed on helping students understand how their own personalities, behaviors, and habits affect their work. Your child will learn to identify short- and long-term goals, and come to see how good study habits can help him achieve those goals.

With this book, your child can get through school with flying colors!
