Hi! I totally understand and feel for your child about how they feel about geography being a very content heavy subject. Personally, i took Pure Geography in Secondary school because I really love Geography:)) I started making notes in sec 3 and drew mindmaps to help me connect the topics better. I realised the power of studying by making mindmaps after seeing a huge jump in my grades. After I started using mindmaps to study, I have always been the top 3 students in the cohort for every test/exam. I strongly believe that mindmaps are super good for memory work as all the factors are all neatly written out on one single paper and we can easily connect the factors together. I have inserted a sample of my personal geography study notes to show you how I studied geography. With my notes, I managed to get A1 for O-levels pure geography and top in the level for prelims and was awarded the Geography Award 🙂 Do feel free to approach me for any help ~

Every person (both children and adults) have unique ways of learning and studying that work best for them. The first step is to find out whether your child is more of a visual learner, kinaesthetic learner, auditory learner, etc.

Visual learners learn best through diagrams, so it may be useful to draw mindmaps and charts.

Kinaesthetic learners learn through movement, so writing down information helps to commit it to memory.

Auditory learners learn through sound, so recording things on the phone that need to be remembered and replaying that recording can also be useful

Hi avocadernize! For chemistry, perhaps it might be helpful for your child to study in a bite-size manner so that the challenging subject seem less overwhelming. Review 1 unit/chapter a day, do a few practice questions, and slowly build confidence. Once your child experiences the sense of achievement that she can master the concepts, slowly she will start finding chemistry less difficult. For chemical reactions, mindmaps might be helpful so that at one glance, she can review and recap easily. Hope this helps!
