  • Pomodoro Technique

    • The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique breaks work schedule into active work schedules and conscious breaks — traditionally 25 minutes in length separated by short five minute breaks. After four work-break intervals, a longer break of about 30 mins is taken. Here’s a quick video detailing the steps of the technique, as well as some other tips!

  • Active Recall Method

    • Most students read and take notes passively. Active recall requires us to make sense of the information and synthesize it for ourselves. This link explains the method in detail.

  • Spaced Repetition

    • This method focuses on adding progressively longer time intervals in between each study session. The following link provides more details.

  • The Reading Cycle

    • Preview notes you’ve already taken. Then, reread the material while retaking notes and annotating.
