A Professional Approach

School and tertiary education teaches students how to think. It teaches how to analyse a problem in their field and then to provide a solution. A students ability to do this is a key to success in their studies and in their worklife.

As you know, success comes from working hard and “working smart”. This website teaches students techniques that help them work smart.

There are many similarities between the exam writing done at school and in tertiary education and the types of writing needed in many professional jobs; letters, reports and proposals.

I am going to talk about exam writing from the point of view of writing as a professional in a chosen career. After you have been working for a while in a professional job you learn that there are techniques you can use to make your report writing easier to do and yet be more effective.

If students learn these techniques earlier, at university or at school, it should help them answer exam questions faster and get better marks for them. This is the same skill that will allow them to write work reports faster and provide better information to their customer or to their management. At work this leads to better respect from those you work with and it helps open up opportunities for promotions and earning better salaries. At school or university it leads to the better marks and the professional approach that will help students get a better job in the first place or will help them to have a better coice in their next level of education.

Some of these techniques may seem basic. Indeed many of them are simple and common sense. That is the beauty of them. As you know, often in life we ignore the obvious even if this can have a huge negative impact on us. Once students latch their brain onto these things they can realise how to never make the same mistake again.

This App is about technique, not the subject material. This means it is appropriate no matter which subject your (hopefully enthusiastic) student is looking for help with.
