As a busy student with a packed schedule, it can be challenging to find time and energy to focus on your studies. Block out specific times each week dedicated to studying and stick to it as much as possible. This will help you establish a routine and make studying a habit. Focus on the most important assignments and deadlines first. Use a planner or to-do list to keep track of what needs to be done and when. Create a comfortable, quiet, and well-lit study space where you can focus without distractions.Use apps or software like productivity timers, note-taking apps, and flashcard tools to make the most of your study time. Keep your study materials and notes organized and easy to access. This will help you avoid wasting time looking for things and keep you on track. Take short breaks throughout your study sessions to recharge and avoid burnout. Going for a short walk, stretching, or doing some deep breathing exercises can help you feel more energized and focused.

First of all, blocking time, staying organized and building repeatable study habits are extremely important. Make sure you are prioritize going to class and paying attention. While at class, make sure you grasp the basics of the class early on in the semester/term. This is critically important for math and science classes such as calculus or physics where the concepts build on each other. So if you are keeping up on the understanding and just need to do the work to practice, blocks of time and organization will help. But if you are struggling with a concept, you may need to pull away from your job and seek help. The strategy I suggest is to check and see if your instructor has office hours and change your work schedule such that you can go see your teacher. Most teachers I know are interested in you learning and will appreciate you reaching out. This does a number of good things for you. 1. It shows the teacher that you care about the class and want to learn and this positive energy may help your grade . 2. You hopefully will get one-on-one time with the teacher and they can help you identify where you are struggling. Good luck!
