Practice Often and for a Short Period of Time

A child has to learn they best way to learn for themselves. A great place to start is with short but frequent and short study periods.

Many studies have shown that this approach works better then less frequent and longer sessions.

In addition to this, I suggest that frequent switching between subjects also helps with retention and has the side effect of keeping the child in question awake!

For example during a weekend or holiday, a great place to start would be something like this agenda:

EACH SESSION 45 MINS

9AM: Maths

10AM: English

11AM: History

1PM: Science

2PM: Modern Languages (e.g. German / Spanish)

3PM: Geography or ICT
