Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn skills based around self-regulated learning including:
Meta-cognitive self-monitoring
I have a Master's Degree in Education and have been teaching and tutoring since 2004. I was a terrible studier when I was young and I aim to help students not be like me. I have spent considerable time teaching students how to improve their study habits and this is one of the best improvement strategies I've found.
Students will practice their note-taking journals with whatever work they are currently doing in school. If they don't have anything going on we will choose a topic to study so they can practice. Students should do at least 45 minutes of practice in between each class.
Students will need a notebook and something to write with or a computer to do typed notes if they prefer.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
