When it comes to studying many of us might say we spend a lot of time doing so when in reality most of the time is spent scrolling on social media or taking naps every 15 minutes. On the other hand, some of us get too invested in student life with all-night parties and consequently skipping classes. Even though these distracting breaks are not the most efficient way to get things done, not many of us know how to work smarter to get the best possible results. So since a new school year is upon us and everyone has a bit of beginning semester motivation, we want to share some genius tips on ‘how to study like a Harvard student.’

These studying tips were written by a Sophia Chua-Rubenfield, a Yale and Harvard graduate student, as well as the daughter of a writer Amy Chua who is also known as ‘The Tiger Mom.’ Sophia was raised using the tiger parenting technique which pushes children to be as academically successful as possible. Clearly, the philosophy works, as Sophia recently became a doctor of Law at Yale law school.

Scroll down to read Sophia’s tips on how to study effectively to succeed, and don’t forget to tell us what you think in the comments!
