Studying and Reading

A crucial part to academic success is getting through courses while actually learning the content along the way. Common studying and reading challenges students face include:

  • struggling with time management or procrastination
  • frustration with lecture notes, PowerPoint handouts, or studying in general
  • feeling overwhelmed by course readings or complex facts and details needed for exams
  • not knowing what to study and when
  • spend hours reading without remembering what was read the next day
  • struggle to understand and organize material from readings

 All university students spend a lot of time studying and reading, but it is possible for your reading to be more productive and useful—as well as less time-consuming. Developing effective strategies is one of your most valuable tools for success at university—regardless of the program you are in or your level of study. 

We help undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate students in all university programs tackle various academic challenges.
