How to Utilize the Summer to Avoid Test Stress & How to Manage College Process Social Pressure

Today I’m kicking off a great Test Stress Series I filmed with Jessica Bush, North Jersey Tutor Doctor. I know with school winding down, you might not be thinking about the college process and tutors (especially for those of you with girls in Middle School), but it’s actually the perfect time build both academic and emotional skills. Hope you enjoy the first two videos!

Advice I got from John Mayer

Confession: I don’t actually know John Mayer, but I was listening to him talk about a song and he had some really interesting advice about confronting your inner bully. Check out today’s video to see what I learned!

How to Handle Body Stress

I’ve received tons of questions about body stress and how it relates to prom/Memorial Day Weekend. It’s hard to have fun when you’re worrying about what you look like. Body stress is something everyone deals with and today I’m sharing one of the most important things we can do to feel confident in our bodies!

 

 

 

A Day in Life

Last Tuesday, I shared on Snapchat a day in life! Like I always say to my students,  you are only seeing what people WANT to show you on social media, so I decided to be honest and write down all the things that it didn’t show on my blog today!

  1. The book I show in the first and last part of the video, I’m reading for grad school. It is huge and I have roughly a million others just like it to read in one month. No idea how I’m going to do it……
  2. When I work on ivivva stuff with my friend Lex, we totally get off topic one million times. Lex always has great ideas!
  3. I’m obsessed with my mentor’s dog. He curls up on my lap during out chats and makes me feel like life can be easy.
  4. Not pictured: how much I drove during the day. I literally was all over creation. Luckily, I listen to good music. It’s pretty much a solo karaoke session.
  5. I had a bunch of privates in one area with middle school to high school seniors. Was super fun.
  6. I saw my best friend who lives in California and we had a great time together, but I always feel a little heartache when she leaves me because I wish she lived closer.
  7. I started to get super tired by the end of the day. I literally ran around like a crazy person.

 

 

 

 

 

 

What to do if You’re Afraid to Raise your Hand in School

I totally relate to being nervous about speaking in school! I worried about what other people thought and if I was going to sound stupid. Being in my own head really took me out of the moment. It’s hard to focus on learning when you’re terrified of being called on! Check out today’s video for an idea that really helped me.
