Procrastination – the top of the list villain of every student’s life. The irony of the fact is, despite knowing the long-term adverse effect of procrastinating a handful percentage of students barely do anything about it. The modern way of life has played a basic role in leading students towards procrastination. In case you are in search of a home tutor in LahoreNini’s Tutor academy is your destination.
The mindset of ‘Why do today when there is tomorrow?’ is the root cause of this menace we are talking about. Be it a student of secondary class (these have started to mature) or a student of University level, everyone displays a lack of time management skills. These are students who will confidently say ‘I have done the homework’ or ‘I am ready for the test / exam’ before the assessment day, but are rarely found backing up their words. Managing time according to workload is a habit that students simply do not have when it comes to studying but they are capable of preparing an A-class schedule of trips and tours for leisure.
Lack of value of time
‘Today’ and ‘now’ are the words reserved for extracurricular activities while ‘tomorrow’ is the word heavily used when it comes to studies. The disregard for time reigns supreme in every student’s life. Spending time with friends, outings at the Malls, or on food streets has become a norm of city life. Socializing and easy access to media have eaten up a horrifyingly big chunk of time from the daily lives of our students.
Reliance on short-cuts
Taking a crash course, doing guess papers, and important topics are a few of the things that are a part of student life now. Whether the student belongs to a national education system or an international one, these things have become part of the syllabus. These short-cuts are also playing the part in making our students lazy because in the back of their minds they have their hopes tied to the idea of doing important topics at the time of exams and clearing the paper.
What to do?
The sad truth is that the parents are also comfortable with this. They do not want to overburden the kid with nagging to study when the child has spent nearly 5 hours in school, studied with Qari sahib for half an hour, and then tuition for about an hour. The question here is how productive were these 6 or so hours? The answer to this question comes when the result arrives. For the productive guidance of students, Nini’s tutor provides online tutors in Pakistan for national and international curricula.
Most parents are content with paying the fees for all of the above and relaxing or staying busy with their work, but this is not enough. Parents should take interest in assessing their child’s progress in what they are paying for instead of relying on the sincerity of the parties involved.
Socializing must be to a limit, media access has to be contained because it seldom does any good for studies. Being strict with the student might be difficult for parents / teachers but it should be taken into practice in view of the long term benefit of children.
