Frequently asked questions

Does Time 2 Control the same thing as homework institutes?
Answer: No; homework institutes focus mainly on subject specific help and make sure you are up to date. Time 2 Control teaches you to plan your homework on your own and how to tackle your homework, regardless of the subject. No matter if you need to read a book for a paper, have to learn words for a language class or study long passages of text (for i.e. history, geography or economics), all types of homework will be discussed and you will learn how to best approach them.

Is the course only suitable for students who have difficulty planning their homework?
Answer: The course “Learning fast = learning fun” is for all students who are willing to invest 15 hours of their time so that they can read faster and summarize better for the rest of their life. Every class includes parts of speed reading, mindmapping and homeworkplanning and therefore each class has useful information for all students.

This depends on the reason of failing, if the child is intellectually on the right level but has trouble to plan and tackle all of the homework, then Time 2 Control could help with the course “Learning fast = learning fun”. There is also the option of individual coaching to tackle one or multiple subjects your child is struggling with.

I encouraged my child to go to a homework institute but he/she refuses...
Homework institutes are a great method for children who need extra subject specific accompaniment or don’t have the discipline to do homework every day. This is not, however, suitable for every student.  Besides, homework institutes are incredibly expensive. A lot of students don’t want to mandatorily spend one or more afternoons in a classroom each week for an entire year to make homework an entire year and perceive this more as a punishment rather than something that could help them.  Time 2 Control teaches the students to look at their own “learning behaviour and study capabilities” and offers them methods and ways to learn and make homework quicker, easier and more efficiently. This gives them more grip on their homework. When you understand how to control tasks, you will benefit from this for the rest of your life, this includes during college/university. Skills such as speed reading, mindmapping and planning will certainly help you. The core goal of Time 2 Control is to give students the methods to tackle their homework by themselves.

I would like to help my child study better but he/she doesn’t want my help...
This probably has to do with age, at a certain age children want to be more independent and pull away from parental authority and exclaim they don’t need the help. It often helps to have an outsider help them. By training in a small group the child will not feel ‘different’ or like they can’t do something, but he/she will be taught how to tackle homework more efficiently. Insight into the child’s own way of studying and techniques that can help improve upon that specific method of studying will help the child regain confidence and rest and will be less abrasive about doing their homework.

My child studies for hours but still gets bad grades, what can he/she do different or more?
Knowledge about how the brain work teaches us that studying non-stop for hours will lead to worse results than studying in short and efficient bursts. Also the method of summarizing and processing learned theory is important to get good results on exams. These are the central most important subjects of the “Learning fast = learning fun” course.

When I revise with my child he/she knows everything, yet when he takes a test he/she doesn’t understand the questions, even though he/she isn’t nervous. How can I help?
Literally studying all theory by heart doesn’t mean you can make connections between certain parts of the studying material. Summarizing through mindmapping can help teach the student see connections between different parts and get better insight into the theory.

My child is a dyslectic and it takes him/her such an awful long time to get through all those books for school...
Especially for children who are dyslexic speed reading is a great and efficient skill to learn. They can read just as fast as anyone else, for more information see dyslexia. The course “Learning fast = learning fun” is the same for everyone, a dyslexic student will not be more noticable than anyone else and doesn’t have to mention it in the group, there are no special treatments and that’s exactly why it’s more approachable for students with dyslexia.
