Tips for Studying at Home

Here to Help

  • Try to remind yourself that this isn’t a vacation from school but rather a transition to online learning at home
  • Set an alarm if you need help getting the day started
  • Get up and get dressed so you feel ready for the day
  • Set up a “base camp”: a dedicated work space just for you
  • Create a schedule for the day. Try to schedule studying at times when you feel most alert
  • Communicate your schedule to the people you share space with so they know how to support you
  • Set achievable goals for each day and celebrate small victories
  • Take regular 10-minute study breaks as a reward for your hard work
  • Eat healthy snacks to power your brain. A good night’s sleep helps too
  • Connect virtually with friends and peers for motivation and support
