The Study Room

The purpose of this program is simple - help students get their school work done. It sounds easy, however, many students and parents know there are many challenges that become a barrier for students to complete their school work.   The Study Room is a place for student's to be free of distractions and have a study coach ready to help them stay on track. 

Does The Study Room provide additional homework?

We know that many students struggle to stay on top of their current work load, the aim of our program is to help students with current school work they already have to complete. A part of the study coaches role is to help students break down assessments and understand how to approach them step by step. This means tasks that are assigned by a study coach will work towards completing an assessment or homework. However, some students do like to challenge themselves to go beyond their school work, so we are happy to help them find additional tasks. Although we will only provide those tasks after we make an assessment on whether the student is able to complete the additional workload alongside their current study. As when a student who is already finding it difficult to hand in assessments and complete exams asks for additional work requests additional materials to study it is important they understand the priority needs to be focusing on the school work provided as this is what will improve their grades the most.

 

Required vs expected vs additional study

 

Required study is the work teachers have specifically asked them to complete, such as homework, and assignments. Required study is often mandatory and means that a student will not pass the subject if it not handed in. 

Expected study is the work that students need to complete to get better than a passing grade. Expected study in year 7-10 might consist of a student writing two drafts prior to an assignment, practicing past papers, preparing for an exam and other similar tasks that improve the grade of the student. 

Additional study is work that is not essential to the course but may increase the students' grades. In year 11-12 students who aim for an ATAR above 90 will very likely need to complete a lot of additional study. This might consist of reading a text more than once, completing extra homework and completing additional mock assessment tasks to improve.

Good and consistent study does not always involve the introduction of more tasks and practice exams. Practice makes perfect is certainly a good way to approach high school studying. However, we understand that many students struggle to manage their current workload, this is why we will focus on students' ability to effectively study the work they are provided from school. So you can rest assured knowing your child will not come home from their session with a large to-do list, which is too overwhelming to complete.

Dedicated study hours, passionate coaches

and a collaborative and supportive environment. 

 

Set to Study has developed strategies to help each student achieve their goals and be calm and prepared for their assessments.  Study coaches are students who have recently graduated and are continuing their studies in a university degree. We choose recent graduates as coaches so that they can easily relate to the student and the course content. All study coaches have a working with children's check, and an ATAR above 90 or are a Set to Study mentor. 

At Set to Study we believe a student's success is based on a collaboration between the student, parents, and educators. High school can be a challenging time for all members involved. A study coach acts as a bridge for the student connecting them with the collaborates and their study goals. At the end of every Study Room session, parents will receive an email stating what was covered in the session, recommendations to improve their studying, any upcoming tasks (exams, assessments) and how much time they may need to study that week. Before the first session, the student will meet with a mentor to discuss their study goals and habits, so a report can be made for the study coach to better understand the student and prepare for The Study Room Sessions.

The Study Room Sessions 

The Study Room will be available for students four days each week Monday - Thursday opening at 3:45pm and closing at 6:45pm. We recommend students attend the sessions as many times as possible throughout the school term to help create a consistent study habit. 3 to 4 times per week is suggested. 


The first 15 minutes of the session will focus on the following elements, accountability and study skills, and assessment assistance. During this time students will be encouraged to write down their goals for the session and receive help on planning upcoming tasks. 

The rest of the session will be devoted to study time. The Study Coach will help students stay on task, this may be through changing the way an essay question is phrased to help the student engage and a variety of other methods to ensure no student is sitting down doing nothing. 

The Study Room is a place of productivity and students are encouraged to voice their opinions and ask any questions they have about a topic. However, Study Coaches are not their as teachers. This means if your child needs a tutor or already has a tutor, this will be a separate matter to The Study  Room. Many of our Study Coaches are able to assist in Mathematics, Science, History, English and many other subjects. It is highly likely Study Coaches will be able to provide assistance with your subjects, however we will confirm who our Study Coaches are in 2020.
