Organization. Time management. Study skills. These are the three critical skills students need to perform well in school. Most students lack at least one of these skills; many lack all three. Yet without a sound understanding of this all-important learning trifecta, students are likely to fail--over and over again.In this practical hands-on guide, Thinking Caps founder Alexandra Mayzler outlines the unique approach that has made her one-of-a-kind tutoring program such a success with students, parents, and educators alike. This interactive program steps your child through these crucial three areas, providing the worksheets, exercises, and anecdotes she needs to master them in record time. The book also features stories throughout, based on case studies of real-life clients.Special emphasis is placed on helping students understand how their own personalities, behaviors, and habits affect their work. Your child will learn to identify short- and long-term goals, and come to see how good study habits can help him achieve those goals.With this book, your child can get through school with flying colors!Endorsement for Tutor in a Book:"Finally, an easy-to-read book about study and test-taking strategies! Passionate and caring educators, Alexandra Mayzler and Ana McGann, have taken knowledge gleaned over many years of working with struggling students and created a valuable road map. Each chapter communicates information clearly and provides systems, worksheets and achievable strategies so students can take charge and become organized self-advocates. This volume should be part of every student's toolkit and a necessary addition to the family library."

Engaging and useful

This is a motivating book for those students that know they want to get the most from their university years. Ana McGann and Alexandra Mayzler emphasize in Tutor in a Book the importance of some different type of skills, apart from the academic ones. These skills, called by the employers "soft" skills are essential for a graduate in a time when to have an unique selling point, a competitive advantage is almost crucial. This book, written engagingly, it is thought provocative and it encourages the reader to try different exercises in order to asses the status of their skills. It contains case studies and examples that will make it easier to understand what it means to have well-developed team working, analytical or communications skills. The range of aptitudes available is wide, allowing the student to understand a full map of skills necessary to succeed in finding and keeping a very good position in the workplace. It is a really interesting book that will keep your interests alive and it is worth reading.
