Organization Difficulties

Our students come to us with varying degrees of (dis)organization. For some students, the extent to which they are disorganized is obvious to all. These students fail to hand in assignments, constantly lose and misplace notes and paper, have messy binders and backpacks, come to class unprepared, and put themselves at the bottom of a rather difficult academic hill to climb. This is an example of physical disorganization.

Other students, in contract, lack organizational skills in ways that are quite subtle. These students may keep good track of their work, and have a ‘tidy’ academic appearance. From the outside, they appear wonderfully organized. However, many of these students are not very strategic when they do their work. They may not plan tasks well, prioritize, or break up larger assignments, which can leave them prone to being overwhelmed or stressed by the amount or complexity of their assignments. They might not be good at estimating results, or estimating the time something will take to complete. We consider this type of disorganization to be more ‘mental’ than physical.

At StudySpot, we define an organized student as someone who feels in control of his or her academic lives. Organized students know what they have to do to get a certain result and are rarely surprised by the results they obtain.

  • Thank you very much for providing such a very helpful facility for my daughter. She has benefited so much from the program, not only for her present situation but I think for life.
