How to Finish Your Homework

While studying can differ for different age groups, many of the things that get in the way are the same. Whether it's your environment or time management skills, it easy for things to discourage you from finishing your homework. With a little organization and help, your homework can become approachable.
Managing Your Time
- For instance, try setting aside a time you know you can work well such as an hour or 2 before dinner, or if you're a night owl, after dinner.
- Work in hour blocks, with 50 minutes spent studying and 10 minutes spent taking a break.
- It can also be helpful to move around when you are taking your break, especially if you are working at a screen. Go for a walk outside to get your blood circulating and enjoy some fresh air.
- You might also want to eat a healthy snack on your break to improve your focus. Avoid junk food and choose something like a handful of nuts, a piece of fruit, veggies, or a small portion of cottage cheese.
- Identify which assignments are worth the most points for each class. Most likely these will take the longest to complete.  X Research source
- Consider how long you have to do each project, and if possible, see when the assignment is introduced. Oftentimes, primary and secondary school classes do not have syllabi, so it might be harder to plan out an entire term, but if you are in college, you will most likely have a syllabus with at least a partial course schedule. Knowing how long you have to complete an assignment will help you prioritize which assignments to do first. You can also ask the teacher how long you have to complete an assignment.  X Research source
- Use highlighters or stickers to mark which assignments are most important.
- If you're using an online or mobile schedule, create alerts or notifications for the projects and any time-sensitive steps for those projects.
- Don't let a big project overshadow the smaller assignments you need to complete!
- Assignment outlines can help you visualize the necessary tasks to get the assignment done.
Creating a Productive Work Environment
- A desk or table would be a better location than a couch or a bed.
- Turn your phone off or on silent (not vibrate). It might be best to put the phone out of sight, or in another room while you work, as the temptation to text or get on social media can be as much of a distraction as actually using social media.
- Use an app that blocks social media. There are plenty of applications out there that can help block social media and other distracting sites (such as shopping or gaming sites).  X Trustworthy Source Pew Research Center Nonpartisan thinktank conducting research and providing information on public opinion, demographic trends, and social trends Go to source
- Use a white noise app to block out noise.
- Use earplugs or noise-blocking earmuffs.  X Research source
- Work in a quiet place, such as a library or a home office, if you have one.
- Avoid listening to music while studying. Studies have shown that although listening to music while studying lowers overall performance, this does not affect everyone equally.  X Research source However listening to music before studying has been shown to improve performance on cognitive tasks.  X Research source
Using Your Resources
- If you're too afraid to ask a teacher during class, see if you can stay behind to ask your questions.
- First, contact your school to see if there are any after-school tutoring programs. While not all primary and secondary schools offer tutoring, a vast majority of universities do. If your school does not offer tutoring, they may know of other resources for you to contact.
- Then, contact your library to see if they offer any tutoring.  X Research source
- In some areas, there may also be free community tutoring programs. Contact your local community center for more information.
- There are plenty of private tutors out there as well, but they can be costly (ranging from $20 to $100 an hour).  X Research source You can find tutors online through a number of websites, such as Craigslist or Angie's list.
- If you need to work at a library after school, ask your parents or search the web to find your local library.

How many times have you found yourself still staring at your textbook around midnight (or later!) even when you started your homework hours earlier? Those lost hours could be explained by Parkinson’s Law, which states, “Work expands to fill the time available for its completion.” In other words, if you give yourself all night to memorize those geometry formulas for your quiz tomorrow, you’ll inevitably find that a 30 minute task has somehow filled your entire evening.
We know that you have more homework than ever. But even with lots and lots to do, a few tweaks to your study routine could help you spend less time getting more accomplished. Here are 8 steps to make Parkinson’s Law work to your advantage:
1. Make a list
This should be a list of everything that has to be done that evening. And we mean, everything—from re-reading notes from this morning’s history class to quizzing yourself on Spanish vocabulary.
2. Estimate the time needed for each item on your list
You can be a little ruthless here. However long you think a task will take, try shaving off 5 or 10 minutes. But, be realistic. You won’t magically become a speed reader.

3. Gather all your gear
Collect EVERYTHING you will need for the homework you are working on (like your laptop for writing assignments and pencils for problem sets). Getting up for supplies takes you off course and makes it that much harder to get back to your homework.
The constant blings and beeps from your devices can make it impossible to focus on what you are working on. Switch off or silence your phones and tablets, or leave them in another room until it’s time to take a tech break.

5. Time yourself
Noting how much time something actually takes will help you estimate better and plan your next study session.
6. Stay on task
If you’re fact checking online, it can be so easy to surf on over to a completely unrelated site. A better strategy is to note what information you need to find online, and do it all at once at the end of the study session.
7. Take plenty of breaks
Most of us need a break between subjects or to break up long stretches of studying. Active breaks are a great way to keep your energy up. Tech breaks can be an awesome way to combat the fear of missing out that might strike while you are buried in your work, but they also tend to stretch much longer than originally intended. Stick to a break schedule of 10 minutes or so.
8. Reward yourself!
Finish early? If you had allocated 30 minutes for reading a biology chapter and it only took 20, you can apply those extra 10 minutes to a short break—or just move on to your next task. If you stay on track, you might breeze through your work quickly enough to catch up on some Netflix.
Our best piece of advice? Keep at it. The more you use this system, the easier it will become. You’ll be surprised by how much time you can shave off homework just by focusing and committing to a distraction-free study plan.

Sat / act prep online guides and tips, how to do homework: 15 expert tips and tricks.
Everyone struggles with homework sometimes, but if getting your homework done has become a chronic issue for you, then you may need a little extra help. That’s why we’ve written this article all about how to do homework. Once you’re finished reading it, you’ll know how to do homework (and have tons of new ways to motivate yourself to do homework)!
We’ve broken this article down into a few major sections. You’ll find:
- A diagnostic test to help you figure out why you’re struggling with homework
- A discussion of the four major homework problems students face, along with expert tips for addressing them
- A bonus section with tips for how to do homework fast
By the end of this article, you’ll be prepared to tackle whatever homework assignments your teachers throw at you .
So let’s get started!
How to Do Homework: Figure Out Your Struggles
Sometimes it feels like everything is standing between you and getting your homework done. But the truth is, most people only have one or two major roadblocks that are keeping them from getting their homework done well and on time.
The best way to figure out how to get motivated to do homework starts with pinpointing the issues that are affecting your ability to get your assignments done. That’s why we’ve developed a short quiz to help you identify the areas where you’re struggling.
Take the quiz below and record your answers on your phone or on a scrap piece of paper. Keep in mind there are no wrong answers!
1. You’ve just been assigned an essay in your English class that’s due at the end of the week. What’s the first thing you do?
A. Keep it in mind, even though you won’t start it until the day before it’s due B. Open up your planner. You’ve got to figure out when you’ll write your paper since you have band practice, a speech tournament, and your little sister’s dance recital this week, too. C. Groan out loud. Another essay? You could barely get yourself to write the last one! D. Start thinking about your essay topic, which makes you think about your art project that’s due the same day, which reminds you that your favorite artist might have just posted to Instagram...so you better check your feed right now.
2. Your mom asked you to pick up your room before she gets home from work. You’ve just gotten home from school. You decide you’ll tackle your chores:
A. Five minutes before your mom walks through the front door. As long as it gets done, who cares when you start? B. As soon as you get home from your shift at the local grocery store. C. After you give yourself a 15-minute pep talk about how you need to get to work. D. You won’t get it done. Between texts from your friends, trying to watch your favorite Netflix show, and playing with your dog, you just lost track of time!
3. You’ve signed up to wash dogs at the Humane Society to help earn money for your senior class trip. You:
A. Show up ten minutes late. You put off leaving your house until the last minute, then got stuck in unexpected traffic on the way to the shelter. B. Have to call and cancel at the last minute. You forgot you’d already agreed to babysit your cousin and bake cupcakes for tomorrow’s bake sale. C. Actually arrive fifteen minutes early with extra brushes and bandanas you picked up at the store. You’re passionate about animals, so you’re excited to help out! D. Show up on time, but only get three dogs washed. You couldn’t help it: you just kept getting distracted by how cute they were!
4. You have an hour of downtime, so you decide you’re going to watch an episode of The Great British Baking Show. You:
A. Scroll through your social media feeds for twenty minutes before hitting play, which means you’re not able to finish the whole episode. Ugh! You really wanted to see who was sent home! B. Watch fifteen minutes until you remember you’re supposed to pick up your sister from band practice before heading to your part-time job. No GBBO for you! C. You finish one episode, then decide to watch another even though you’ve got SAT studying to do. It’s just more fun to watch people make scones. D. Start the episode, but only catch bits and pieces of it because you’re reading Twitter, cleaning out your backpack, and eating a snack at the same time.
5. Your teacher asks you to stay after class because you’ve missed turning in two homework assignments in a row. When she asks you what’s wrong, you say:
A. You planned to do your assignments during lunch, but you ran out of time. You decided it would be better to turn in nothing at all than submit unfinished work. B. You really wanted to get the assignments done, but between your extracurriculars, family commitments, and your part-time job, your homework fell through the cracks. C. You have a hard time psyching yourself to tackle the assignments. You just can’t seem to find the motivation to work on them once you get home. D. You tried to do them, but you had a hard time focusing. By the time you realized you hadn’t gotten anything done, it was already time to turn them in.
Like we said earlier, there are no right or wrong answers to this quiz (though your results will be better if you answered as honestly as possible). Here’s how your answers break down:
- If your answers were mostly As, then your biggest struggle with doing homework is procrastination.
- If your answers were mostly Bs, then your biggest struggle with doing homework is time management.
- If your answers were mostly Cs, then your biggest struggle with doing homework is motivation.
- If your answers were mostly Ds, then your biggest struggle with doing homework is getting distracted.
Now that you’ve identified why you’re having a hard time getting your homework done, we can help you figure out how to fix it! Scroll down to find your core problem area to learn more about how you can start to address it.
And one more thing: you’re really struggling with homework, it’s a good idea to read through every section below. You may find some additional tips that will help make homework less intimidating.
How to Do Homework When You’re a Procrastinator
Merriam Webster defines “procrastinate” as “to put off intentionally and habitually.” In other words, procrastination is when you choose to do something at the last minute on a regular basis. If you’ve ever found yourself pulling an all-nighter, trying to finish an assignment between periods, or sprinting to turn in a paper minutes before a deadline, you’ve experienced the effects of procrastination.
If you’re a chronic procrastinator, you’re in good company. In fact, one study found that 70% to 95% of undergraduate students procrastinate when it comes to doing their homework. Unfortunately, procrastination can negatively impact your grades. Researchers have found that procrastination can lower your grade on an assignment by as much as five points ...which might not sound serious until you realize that can mean the difference between a B- and a C+.
Procrastination can also negatively affect your health by increasing your stress levels , which can lead to other health conditions like insomnia, a weakened immune system, and even heart conditions. Getting a handle on procrastination can not only improve your grades, it can make you feel better, too!
The big thing to understand about procrastination is that it’s not the result of laziness. Laziness is defined as being “disinclined to activity or exertion.” In other words, being lazy is all about doing nothing. But a s this Psychology Today article explains , procrastinators don’t put things off because they don’t want to work. Instead, procrastinators tend to postpone tasks they don’t want to do in favor of tasks that they perceive as either more important or more fun. Put another way, procrastinators want to do things...as long as it’s not their homework!
3 Tips f or Conquering Procrastination
Because putting off doing homework is a common problem, there are lots of good tactics for addressing procrastination. Keep reading for our three expert tips that will get your homework habits back on track in no time.
#1: Create a Reward System
Like we mentioned earlier, procrastination happens when you prioritize other activities over getting your homework done. Many times, this happens because homework...well, just isn’t enjoyable. But you can add some fun back into the process by rewarding yourself for getting your work done.
Here’s what we mean: let’s say you decide that every time you get your homework done before the day it’s due, you’ll give yourself a point. For every five points you earn, you’ll treat yourself to your favorite dessert: a chocolate cupcake! Now you have an extra (delicious!) incentive to motivate you to leave procrastination in the dust.
If you’re not into cupcakes, don’t worry. Your reward can be anything that motivates you . Maybe it’s hanging out with your best friend or an extra ten minutes of video game time. As long as you’re choosing something that makes homework worth doing, you’ll be successful.
#2: Have a Homework Accountability Partner
If you’re having trouble getting yourself to start your homework ahead of time, it may be a good idea to call in reinforcements . Find a friend or classmate you can trust and explain to them that you’re trying to change your homework habits. Ask them if they’d be willing to text you to make sure you’re doing your homework and check in with you once a week to see if you’re meeting your anti-procrastination goals.
Sharing your goals can make them feel more real, and an accountability partner can help hold you responsible for your decisions. For example, let’s say you’re tempted to put off your science lab write-up until the morning before it’s due. But you know that your accountability partner is going to text you about it tomorrow...and you don’t want to fess up that you haven’t started your assignment. A homework accountability partner can give you the extra support and incentive you need to keep your homework habits on track.
#3: Create Your Own Due Dates
If you’re a life-long procrastinator, you might find that changing the habit is harder than you expected. In that case, you might try using procrastination to your advantage! If you just can’t seem to stop doing your work at the last minute, try setting your own due dates for assignments that range from a day to a week before the assignment is actually due.
Here’s what we mean. Let’s say you have a math worksheet that’s been assigned on Tuesday and is due on Friday. In your planner, you can write down the due date as Thursday instead. You may still put off your homework assignment until the last minute...but in this case, the “last minute” is a day before the assignment’s real due date . This little hack can trick your procrastination-addicted brain into planning ahead!

How to Do Homework When You’re too Busy
If you’re aiming to go to a top-tier college , you’re going to have a full plate. Because college admissions is getting more competitive, it’s important that you’re maintaining your grades , studying hard for your standardized tests , and participating in extracurriculars so your application stands out. A packed schedule can get even more hectic once you add family obligations or a part-time job to the mix.
If you feel like you’re being pulled in a million directions at once, you’re not alone. Recent research has found that stress—and more severe stress-related conditions like anxiety and depression— are a major problem for high school students . In fact, one study from the American Psychological Association found that during the school year, students’ stress levels are higher than those of the adults around them.
For students, homework is a major contributor to their overall stress levels . Many high schoolers have multiple hours of homework every night , and figuring out how to fit it into an already-packed schedule can seem impossible.
3 Tips for Fitting Homework Into Your Busy Schedule
While it might feel like you have literally no time left in your schedule, there are still ways to make sure you’re able to get your homework done and meet your other commitments. Here are our expert homework tips for even the busiest of students.
#1: Make a Prioritized To-Do List
You probably already have a to-do list to keep yourself on track. The next step is to prioritize the items on your to-do list so you can see what items need your attention right away.
Here’s how it works: at the beginning of each day, sit down and make a list of all the items you need to get done before you go to bed. This includes your homework, but it should also take into account any practices, chores, events, or job shifts you may have. Once you get everything listed out, it’s time to prioritize them using the labels A, B, and C. Here’s what those labels mean:
- A Tasks : tasks that have to get done—like showing up at work or turning in an assignment—get an A.
- B Tasks : these are tasks that you would like to get done by the end of the day but aren’t as time sensitive. For example, studying for a test you have next week could be a B-level task. It’s still important, but it doesn’t have to be done right away.
- C Tasks: these are tasks that aren’t very important and/or have no real consequences if you don’t get them done immediately. For instance, if you’re hoping to clean out your closet but it’s not an assigned chore from your parents, you could label that to-do item with a C.
Prioritizing your to-do list helps you visualize which items need your immediate attention, and which items you can leave for later. A prioritized to-do list ensures that you’re spending your time efficiently and effectively, which helps you make room in your schedule for homework. So even though you might really want to start making decorations for Homecoming (a B task), you’ll know that finishing your reading log (an A task) is more important.
#2: Use a Planner With Time Labels
Your planner is probably packed with notes, events, and assignments already. (And if you’re not using a planner, it’s time to start!) But planners can do more for you than just remind you when an assignment is due. If you’re using a planner with time labels, it can help you visualize how you need to spend your day.
A planner with time labels breaks your day down into chunks, and you assign tasks to each chunk of time. For example, you can make a note of your class schedule with assignments, block out time to study, and make sure you know when you need to be at practice. Once you know which tasks take priority, you can add them to any empty spaces in your day.
Planning out how you spend your time not only helps you use it wisely, it can help you feel less overwhelmed, too . We’re big fans of planners that include a task list ( like this one ) or have room for notes ( like this one ).
#3: Set Reminders on Your Phone
If you need a little extra nudge to make sure you’re getting your homework done on time, it’s a good idea to set some reminders on your phone. You don’t need a fancy app, either. You can use your alarm app to have it go off at specific times throughout the day to remind you to do your homework. This works especially well if you have a set homework time scheduled. So if you’ve decided you’re doing homework at 6:00 pm, you can set an alarm to remind you to bust out your books and get to work.
If you use your phone as your planner, you may have the option to add alerts, emails, or notifications to scheduled events . Many calendar apps, including the one that comes with your phone, have built-in reminders that you can customize to meet your needs. So if you block off time to do your homework from 4:30 to 6:00 pm, you can set a reminder that will pop up on your phone when it’s time to get started.

How to Do Homework When You’re Unmotivated
At first glance, it may seem like procrastination and being unmotivated are the same thing. After all, both of these issues usually result in you putting off your homework until the very last minute.
But there’s one key difference: many procrastinators are working, they’re just prioritizing work differently. They know they’re going to start their homework...they’re just going to do it later.
Conversely, people who are unmotivated to do homework just can’t find the willpower to tackle their assignments. Procrastinators know they’ll at least attempt the homework at the last minute, whereas people who are unmotivated struggle with convincing themselves to do it at a ll. For procrastinators, the stress comes from the inevitable time crunch. For unmotivated people, the stress comes from trying to convince themselves to do something they don’t want to do in the first place.
Here are some common reasons students are unmotivated in doing homework :
- Assignments are too easy, too hard, or seemingly pointless
- Students aren’t interested in (or passionate about) the subject matter
- Students are intimidated by the work and/or feels like they don’t understand the assignment
- Homework isn’t fun, and students would rather spend their time on things that they enjoy
To sum it up: people who lack motivation to do their homework are more likely to not do it at all, or to spend more time worrying about doing their homework than...well, actually doing it.
3 Tips for How to Get Motivated to Do Homework
The key to getting homework done when you’re unmotivated is to figure out what does motivate you, then apply those things to homework. It sounds tricky...but it’s pretty simple once you get the hang of it! Here are our three expert tips for motivating yourself to do your homework.
#1: Use Incremental Incentives
When you’re not motivated, it’s important to give yourself small rewards to stay focused on finishing the task at hand. The trick is to keep the incentives small and to reward yourself often. For example, maybe you’re reading a good book in your free time. For every ten minutes you spend on your homework, you get to read five pages of your book. Like we mentioned earlier, make sure you’re choosing a reward that works for you!
So why does this technique work? Using small rewards more often allows you to experience small wins for getting your work done. Every time you make it to one of your tiny reward points, you get to celebrate your success, which gives your brain a boost of dopamine . Dopamine helps you stay motivated and also creates a feeling of satisfaction when you complete your homework !
#2: Form a Homework Group
If you’re having trouble motivating yourself, it’s okay to turn to others for support. Creating a homework group can help with this. Bring together a group of your friends or classmates, and pick one time a week where you meet and work on homework together. You don’t have to be in the same class, or even taking the same subjects— the goal is to encourage one another to start (and finish!) your assignments.
Another added benefit of a homework group is that you can help one another if you’re struggling to understand the material covered in your classes. This is especially helpful if your lack of motivation comes from being intimidated by your assignments. Asking your friends for help may feel less scary than talking to your teacher...and once you get a handle on the material, your homework may become less frightening, too.
#3: Change Up Your Environment
If you find that you’re totally unmotivated, it may help if you find a new place to do your homework. For example, if you’ve been struggling to get your homework done at home, try spending an extra hour in the library after school instead. The change of scenery can limit your distractions and give you the energy you need to get your work done.
If you’re stuck doing homework at home, you can still use this tip. For instance, maybe you’ve always done your homework sitting on your bed. Try relocating somewhere else, like your kitchen table, for a few weeks. You may find that setting up a new “homework spot” in your house gives you a motivational lift and helps you get your work done.
Social media can be a huge problem when it comes to doing homework. We have advice for helping you unplug and regain focus.
How to Do Homework When You’re Easily Distracted
We live in an always-on world, and there are tons of things clamoring for our attention. From friends and family to pop culture and social media, it seems like there’s always something (or someone!) distracting us from the things we need to do.
The 24/7 world we live in has affected our ability to focus on tasks for prolonged periods of time. Research has shown that over the past decade, an average person’s attention span has gone from 12 seconds to eight seconds . And when we do lose focus, i t takes people a long time to get back on task . One study found that it can take as long as 23 minutes to get back to work once we’ve been distracte d. No wonder it can take hours to get your homework done!
3 Tips to Improve Your Focus
If you have a hard time focusing when you’re doing your homework, it’s a good idea to try and eliminate as many distractions as possible. Here are three expert tips for blocking out the noise so you can focus on getting your homework done.
#1: Create a Distraction-Free Environment
Pick a place where you’ll do your homework every day, and make it as distraction-free as possible. Try to find a location where there won’t be tons of noise, and limit your access to screens while you’re doing your homework. Put together a focus-oriented playlist (or choose one on your favorite streaming service), and put your headphones on while you work.
You may find that other people, like your friends and family, are your biggest distraction. If that’s the case, try setting up some homework boundaries. Let them know when you’ll be working on homework every day, and ask them if they’ll help you keep a quiet environment. They’ll be happy to lend a hand!
#2: Limit Your Access to Technology
We know, we know...this tip isn’t fun, but it does work. For homework that doesn’t require a computer, like handouts or worksheets, it’s best to put all your technology away . Turn off your television, put your phone and laptop in your backpack, and silence notifications on any wearable tech you may be sporting. If you listen to music while you work, that’s fine...but make sure you have a playlist set up so you’re not shuffling through songs once you get started on your homework.
If your homework requires your laptop or tablet, it can be harder to limit your access to distractions. But it’s not impossible! T here are apps you can download that will block certain websites while you’re working so that you’re not tempted to scroll through Twitter or check your Facebook feed. Silence notifications and text messages on your computer, and don’t open your email account unless you absolutely have to. And if you don’t need access to the internet to complete your assignments, turn off your WiFi. Cutting out the online chatter is a great way to make sure you’re getting your homework done.
#3: Set a Timer (the Pomodoro Technique)
Have you ever heard of the Pomodoro technique ? It’s a productivity hack that uses a timer to help you focus!
Here’s how it works: first, set a timer for 25 minutes. This is going to be your work time. During this 25 minutes, all you can do is work on whatever homework assignment you have in front of you. No email, no text messaging, no phone calls—just homework. When that timer goes off, y ou get to take a 5 minute break. Every time you go through one of these cycles, it’s called a “pomodoro.” For every four pomodoros you complete, you can take a longer break of 15 to 30 minutes.
The pomodoro technique works through a combination of boundary setting and rewards. First, it gives you a finite amount of time to focus, so you know that you only have to work really hard for 25 minutes. Once you’ve done that, you’re rewarded with a short break where you can do whatever you want. Additionally, tracking how many pomodoros you complete can help you see how long you’re really working on your homework. (Once you start using our focus tips, you may find it doesn’t take as long as you thought!)
Two Bonus Tips for How to Do Homework Fast
Even if you’re doing everything right, there will be times when you just need to get your homework done as fast as possible. (Why do teachers always have projects due in the same week? The world may never know.)
The problem with speeding through homework is that it’s easy to make mistakes. While turning in an assignment is always better than not submitting anything at all, you want to make sure that you’re not compromising quality for speed. Simply put, the goal is to get your homework done quickly and still make a good grade on the assignment!
Here are our two bonus tips for getting a decent grade on your homework assignments , even when you’re in a time crunch.
#1: Do the Easy Parts First
This is especially true if you’re working on a handout with multiple questions. Before you start working on the assignment, read through all the questions and problems. As you do, make a mark beside the questions you think are “easy” to answer .
Once you’ve finished going through the whole assignment, you can answer these questions first. Getting the easy questions out of the way as quickly as possible lets you spend more time on the trickier portions of your homework, which will maximize your assignment grade.
(Quick note: this is also a good strategy to use on timed assignments and tests, like the SAT and the ACT !)
#2: Pay Attention in Class
Homework gets a lot easier when you’re actively learning the material. Teachers aren’t giving you homework because they’re mean or trying to ruin your weekend... it’s because they want you to really understand the course material. Homework is designed to reinforce what you’re already learning in class so you’ll be ready to tackle harder concepts later.
When you pay attention in class, ask questions, and take good notes, you’re absorbing the information you’ll need to succeed on your homework assignments. (You’re stuck in class anyway, so you might as well make the most of it!) Not only will paying attention in class make your homework less confusing, it will also help it go much faster, too.
If you’re looking to improve your productivity beyond homework, a good place to begin is with time management. After all, we only have so much time in a day...so it’s important to get the most out of it! To get you started, check out this list of the 12 best time management techniques that you can start using today.

How to Finish Your Homework Fast – 5 Effective Tips and Tricks
Students of all ages find themselves struggling to finish their homework for one reason or another. In a technology-driven world, it’s always tempting to check your social media feed, play video games, or watch online videos to rid your mind of all your school worries. And before you know it, you have barely any time left to complete your homework and submit it on time.
Of course, you can’t be irresponsible and ignore your assignments altogether. It’s important to find ways to work around the everyday distractions and finish what needs to be done. Without question, this is easier said than done. But there are plenty of tips and tricks you can use to finish your homework fast. Keep reading to learn how to get motivated to complete your homework—even without lifting a finger!
Mastering the Basic Rules
There are some good tips you can follow which will ultimately help you focus on your assignments, stay organized and complete them in the least amount of time. These rules don’t require money or any special knowledge. It’s all about prepping yourself up for the task at hand. What’s great about mastering these basic rules is that once they become a habit, you’ll find yourself eager to finish your homework without even thinking about it.
- Eliminate Distractions – Several things cause you to feel distracted and unable to do your college or high school homework assignments. It’s not uncommon for you to start studying and doing your homework, and then your phone beeps and the rest is history. You constantly tell yourself that you’ll spend only 5 minutes on your phone, but you end up tapping away at the screen for hours on end. Other distractions include TV, magazines, and even the people surrounding you. Sometimes, all it takes is for a friend or family member to start a conversation to completely distract you from your schoolwork. This is precisely why you should eliminate distractions—or at least keep them to a minimum. Try to avoid watching TV, keeping your phone in another room, and finding a quiet place where you can’t be easily reached. Listening to music is neither an option. If it requires living like a recluse for a few hours to complete your assignments, then, by all means, do it. It won’t be easy, but you’ll thank yourself for making this change. In any case, all these distractors will add hours and hours of homework.
- Prioritize Tasks – Many school students choose to do the easiest tasks first when the time to study comes. But did you know that experts recommend starting with the hardest task? This has to do with your willpower. Interestingly, willpower is a resource that diminishes as the day goes by. This explains why people love to lay in bed at night, nibble on midnight snacks and make irrational decisions late in the day. As soon as your classes are over, spend a couple of minutes planning what you should do for the rest of the day. If you need to write a research or dissertation paper, figure out how long it will take you to finish it. This helps you allow enough time for your assignments, and perhaps find some time to do other things you love—be it hanging out with friends, watching your favorite TV series, or just getting enough shuteye.
- Work with Peers – Introducing a system of accountability in your routine can go a long way in establishing excellent studying habits. Only a handful of the student population study with their classmates. Maybe this has to do with how convenient it is to communicate with others through instant messaging apps and social media platforms. Sometimes, it seems like there’s no sense in meeting in person with your friends if you can just text or call them for free. But when it comes to getting your homework done, working with your peers can be a huge difference maker that can make your brains work better. You might not realize it, but sitting in silence is the reason why you’re not feeling motivated to complete your assignments. Boredom can get the best of you at times, so why not try finding ways to make this otherwise dull activity into something fun and exciting? This offers the advantage of getting help from your friends if you’re having difficulties with a particular topic. Of course, it helps if you have a friend who performs well in your classes. As the adage goes, two heads are better than one. This can’t be any truer when it comes to studying. What’s more, there’ll be someone who holds you accountable for all the tasks you don’t finish on time. This can be just what you need to stay focused on your tasks.
- Understand the Consequences and Benefits – Many students don’t display any hesitation in saying that they hate assignments. It takes away time which they could otherwise spend with their families, friends, and favorite activities. There’s a never-ending debate about how useful assignments really are, but the fact remains that students have no choice other than to comply with the requirements given out by their teachers. Instead of purely thinking of how much you hate assignments, why not look on the other side and consider its benefits? Assignments can be a huge pain, but there’s no doubt that they aid your classroom learning. For one, it hones your problem-solving skills, especially if you manage to complete a difficult homework by doing all the research and studying yourself. It always feels rewarding when you accomplish something you thought you couldn’t. Also, take some time to think about the consequences of failing to complete your assignments on time. What happens if you don’t do your homework? The obvious repercussions include getting a bad grade and being scolded by your teachers and parents. But the biggest consequence is that you’re missing an opportunity to learn new lessons, discover your strengths, develop your skills to become not just a better student, but a better person as well.
- Get Professional Help – There are times in which you start doing your homework and then find yourself unable to progress. In most cases, this has to do with your lack of understanding of the topic, the unavailability of research materials, or an emergency that forces you to stop completing your assignment. What can you do during such scenarios? At first, you might think that there’s nothing left to do but accept the terrible grade you’ll receive and just move on. But did you know that you can enlist real experts to get your homework done fast? Assignment Expert has been helping students across the globe finish their assignments on time, get high marks, and learn their school lessons at the same time. It’s undeniable that many teachers give out assignments that prove too challenging. Some assignments may be about a topic that hasn’t been covered yet. It seems as if teachers always assume that students can do their own research because all the answers can be found on the web nowadays. But the fact is, students need professional help sometimes. This is your best course of action when you have a lot of assignments to finish but want to have free time instead. What’s great is that you’ll be matched with the right expert based on the topic and its difficulty. Whether you struggle with lack of motivation, don’t understand the subject, have just one math problem or have to attend to an emergency, Assignment Expert is always ready and willing to work on your homework and finish it for you in no time.

1. Chart homework tasks finished.
2. Converse with the learner to explain (a) what the learner is doing wrong (e.g., not turning in homework tasks ) and (b) what the learner should be doing (i.e., finishing homework tasks and returning them to school).
3. Urge the learner to lessen distractions to finish homework (e.g., turn off the radio and/or TV, have people whisper, etc.).
4. Take proactive steps to deal with a learner’s refusal to perform a homework task to prevent contagion in the classroom (e.g., refrain from arguing with the learner, place the learner at a carrel or other quiet space to work, remove the learner from the group or classroom, etc.).
5. Select a peer to model finishing homework tasks and returning them to school for the learner.
6. Urge the learner to realize that all behavior has negative or positive consequences. Urge the learner to practice behaviors that will lead to positive outcomes.
7. Urge the learner to set up an “office” where homework can be finished.
8. Get the learner to assess the visual and auditory stimuli in their designated workspace at home to ascertain the number of stimuli they can tolerate.
9. Create an agreement with the learner and their parents requiring that homework be done before more desirable learning activities at home (e.g., playing, watching television, going out for the evening, etc.).
10. Make sure that homework gives drill and practice rather than introducing new ideas or information.
11. Designate small amounts of homework initially . As the learner shows success, slowly increase the amount of homework (e.g., one or two problems to perform may be sufficient to begin the homework process).
12. Provide consistency in assigning homework (i.e., designate the same amount of homework each day).
13. Make sure the amount of homework designated is not excessive and can be finished within a sensible amount of time. Remember, secondary students may have six or seven teachers assigning homework each day.
14. Assess the appropriateness of the homework task to determine (a) if the task is too easy, (b) if the task is too complicated, and (c) if the duration of time scheduled to finish the task is sufficient.
15. Praise the learner for finishing homework tasks and returning them to school: (a) give the learner a concrete reward (e.g., classroom privileges, 10 minutes of free time, etc.) or (b) provide the learner an informal reward (e.g., praise, handshake, smile, etc.).
16. Praise the learner for finishing homework tasks based on the number of tasks the learner can successfully finish. As the learner shows success, slowly increase the number of tasks required for reinforcement.
17. Praise those students who finish their tasks at school during the time given.
18. Send home only one homework task at a time. As the learner shows success finishing tasks at home, slowly increase the number of homework tasks sent home.
19. Show the tasks in the most attractive and exciting manner possible.
20. Find the learning materials the learner continuously fails to take home. Give a set of those learning materials for the learner to keep at home.
21. Consider using an education app to help the student sharpen their organizational skills. Click here to view a list of apps that we recommend .

Homework, a necessary evil according to many teachers, has a lot of students tied up in knots. Some students can never seem to get things turned in on time. In fact, many students do not even realize that they have homework until a friend from class texts them or they overhear someone in the halls talking about Ms. So-and-so's terrible, no-good, awful, horrifying worksheet for Chemistry that is due the next day. These five tips for completing your homework on time, however, should help you get that homework finished on time.
Tip 1: Rely On a Planning System
Most of you by now are well acquainted with a homework planner. It has the dates, the school subjects you are taking, and a whole lot of blank space to write down your homework assignments. Use these planners if you have them. Writing with an actual pencil or pen may seem almost archaic what with technology virtually doing everything for us, but the kinesthetic movement of writing down an assignment into one of those little squares (Language Arts test tomorrow - STUDY TONIGHT), will actually help solidify that homework in your brain.
Plus, when you are packing up to go home at the end of the school day, all you have to do is open up that planner to see which books, folders, and binders need to go home with you so you will not miss out anything that you need to do that evening.
Some people hate using planners. They'd rather walk on a pile of crushed glass than actually write something down in a planner. That's quite all right. One student kept a wadded up piece of paper in his pocket where he'd scrawl his assignments. It worked for him, so it was fine. For those of you not keen on planners or crumpled up notes, your phone can come in really handy. Just download a productivity app and type your assignments in there. Or, keep track of all the work due in the notes section of your phone. Or, snap a picture of the homework board in each teacher's class before you head out into the hallway. Or, if you are really dead-set against anything planner-related, then just send yourself a text after each class with your homework assignments for the night.
No matter which planning system you prefer, use it. Check off each item once you get it in your backpack. Your brain can only process so much information at a time, so you absolutely must write your homework down if you plan to complete it on time.
Tip 2: Prioritize Your Homework Assignments
All assignments are not created equal. It's strongly recommended you use a prioritizing system when you sit down at home with your homework. Try a system a little something like this:
- Examples: Studying for a major test coming up tomorrow. Finishing a major project due tomorrow. Writing an essay worth a LOT of points that is due tomorrow.
- Examples: Studying for a quiz coming up tomorrow. Completing a homework sheet that is due tomorrow. Reading a chapter that is due tomorrow.
- Examples: Studying for a spelling test that will occur on Friday. Writing a blog and posting it on the class board by Friday. Finish a book upon which you will take a quiz on Friday.
- Examples: Reviewing chapters for the midterm exam. Working on an on-going project, research paper, or long assignment due at the end of the quarter. Completing a packet that isn't due for two weeks.
Once you've prioritized the work you have to do, complete all the 1's first, then the 2's, moving down as you go. That way, if you find yourself pressed for time because Great-Grandma decided to stop over for family dinner and your mom insisted you spend the evening playing bridge with her despite the fact that you have hours of homework ahead of you, then you will not have missed anything vitally important to your grade.
Tip 3: Get the Worst Assignment Over With First
So, maybe you absolutely hate writing essays (But, why, though when all you have to do is follow these essay tips? ) and you have a major essay staring you in the face that must be completed before tomorrow. You also have to study for a major math test, complete a social studies blog by Friday, study for the ACT next month, and finish up your science worksheet from class. Your "1" assignments would be the essay and the math test. Your "2" assignment is the science worksheet, the "3" assignment is that blog, and the "4" assignment is studying for the ACT.
Ordinarily, you would start with the science worksheet because you love science, but that would be a big mistake. Start with those "1" assignments and knock out that essay first. Why? Because you hate it. And completing the worst assignment first gets it off your mind, out of your homework cache, and makes everything that comes after it appears to be really, really easy. It will be an absolute joy to complete that science worksheet once you have written the essay. Why rob yourself of joy?
Then, once you've completed the stuff due first, you can focus on putting in a little bit of time on the ACT. Easy peasy.
Tip 4: Take Planned Breaks
Some people believe that sitting down to complete homework means that you literally park your behind in a chair and you don't move it for the next four thousand hours or so. That is one of the worst study ideas in history. Your brain only has the capacity to stay focused for about 45 minutes (maybe even less for some of you) before it goes on the fritz and starts wanting to make you get up and dance the Roger Rabbit. So, schedule your study time with breaks actually built in . Work for 45 minutes, then take a 10-minute break to do whatever it is people your age like to do. Then, rinse and repeat. It looks a little something like this:
- 45 minutes: Work on "1" assignments, starting with the absolute worst.
- 10 minutes: Get a snack, play Pokemon Go!, surf Instagram
- 45 minutes: Work on "1" assignments again. You know you didn't finish.
- 10 minutes: Do some jumping jacks, dance the Macarena, polish your nails.
- 45 minutes: Work on "2" assignments and maybe even finish with any 3s and 4s. Put everything in your backpack.
Completing your homework on time is a learned skill. It requires some discipline and not everyone is naturally disciplined. So, you have to practice checking that you have everything you need for homework when you are still at school, prioritizing your work, plunging into the assignments you loathe, and taking planned breaks. Isn't your grade worth it?
You bet it is.

How to finish homework fast – 8 Steps
Here, we will discuss the steps listed above. Once you follow these steps, you will be able to write and complete homework assignments in the shortest time possible.
Step 1: Organizing Your Workspace:
When trying to figure out how to do your homework quickly, organization is the key. If you have everything ready for when you sit down at your desk, you can get going with your tasks faster. Also, being organized will help you remember where you left off and how much work is ahead of you.
From the minute you walk into your study room, you should think about how to organize your work space for maximum productivity. Start by laying out all of the supplies needed to do your homework. This means pens, pencils, notebooks and any other supplies that you need. If you are using a computer, have your laptop set up and ready to go before you sit down. Make sure all of the cords are plugged in properly and everything is where it should be so it’s easy for you to find when you’re looking for something specific.
In terms of the general organization of your room, try to keep your area as clean as possible. If you have a lot of clutter in the background, it can prove to be distracting for you when trying to focus on your work. The less mess and distractions there are around you, the faster you will be able to work.
Step 2: Choosing the Right Place to Work:
It’s important that you figure out where you are most comfortable working when trying to get homework done fast . If you feel like your library is the best place for you, go there. However, if it’s a messy area or noisy, then don’t go there because you aren’t going to be able to focus on your writing and studying.
As mentioned above, try organizing your desk so that all of the supplies you need while working are easily accessible. It’s also helpful if the lighting in the area is good for what tasks you will be doing at your desk and studying. Yet another thing is fresh air; make sure breathing isn’t hard for some reason due to poor ventilation or if you don’t have access to a window.
Step 3: Prioritizing Your Homework Tasks
When trying to finish your homework fast, it’s all about prioritization. You need to think about which tasks are more important than others and start out with those. Then, depending on how long you have and what time it is, you can move onto the next task on your list so that things are getting done in an order that makes sense.
If you had three tasks that needed to be completed (an hour each), start with the shortest assignment as well as one of the longest ones just in case there is not enough time for everything. This way, if something goes wrong during your study session or breaks down somehow, then at least there is something to show for it.
Doing this ensures you don’t have to cram everything in all at once because things are not getting done and that way, you’re more likely to get it all done on time. Remember, prioritizing your tasks will help you figure out how to do your homework quickly and efficiently which leads into the next section about being motivated with everything else involved in trying to complete homework faster than usual.
Step 4: Identify the research materials and problems you will solve.
Identify materials required to complete the assignment. Before you can start doing your homework, it is prudent that you go through each homework quickly and identify what materials you need to complete the homework. Collect all the books you need or if you are doing the research online, collect all the links (for the resources) in one text file for easy accessibility. In most cases, researching a homework assignment beforehand can help you save a lot of time while trying to finish your homework fast.
Identify the problems you will solve. You should not pick a problem to solve until you have done preliminary research on how to solve the problem. Your chances of finishing your homework fast are higher if you know where the solutions are located and hence which problems you will be trying to solve. If it appears that all the problems can be solved using one theory or concept, then try making use of this theory or concept in solving other related problems as well. When doing multiple-step tasks, always start with easy steps first and work your way up to harder ones instead of going for complicated problems from the beginning because this would significantly slow down your pace while finishing your homework fast.
Organize materials needed for completing assignment into groups based on their relevance to the assignment. It is advisable that you organize all your materials into groups before you start trying to finish your homework fast. For instance, if you have books that contain relevant information for completing your assignment, it would be prudent that you group them together so as to make this process easier. You should group your assignments by date or topic.
Start with easy tasks and work up gradually instead of going straight for complicated problems or tasks when finishing homework fast. Do not forget to reward yourself at regular intervals since finishing a task will require a lot of concentration and focus and also time which could mean more than one hour most times depending on how complex the assignment is. If you reach an advanced level in any assignment, take an advantage of this opportunity to learn more.
Step 5: Get Motivated
Motivation is an important tool when trying to finish your homework fast as possible. Think of whatever task you must complete as a game or race against someone else and try beating them by finishing first. This may seem silly, but it works! If paying attention to other people isn’t doing it for you, try looking at the smaller picture.
If there’s a paper due tomorrow and you have to write five pages of content, imagine that each page is one step closer to finishing and will get you that much closer to being done with your work for the day. This can seem small, but focusing on what needs to be finished most recently rather than thinking about everything in general will help you stay motivated so that you can do your homework quickly.
Step 6: Dealing with Procrastination
The biggest obstacle standing between you and how to do your homework faster is often procrastination. You know what needs getting done and yet still put it off for more important things or different tasks. This is a problem because it can make you start out slower than normal and end up rushing to try and finish everything because of the time constraints.
One way you could combat procrastination is by making your tasks seem more like a game as mentioned above. Treat every item on your to-do list as if they are steps in a video game or levels in an RPG (role playing game). See how far along you have gotten with each homework assignment, not just overall, but also what percentage completed it has been done at.
This gives you something to reward yourself with when things are getting done quickly so that working hard is worth it and becomes fun! By rewarding yourself for having good study habits rather than being excessively strict with yourself, this makes homework less of a chore and much faster to finish.
Step 7: Start Writing Your Homework
Organize your time to make sure all tasks are completed on schedule. This means that you should start working on your assignment even before the deadline is due. This could be done by planning ahead so as to ensure that everything is ready before the day of submission since an assignment which appears complex at first might turn out simple once you are through with it.
Planning will enable you to identify and include every step involved in completing the task right from beginning up until completion, and hence save a lot of time when trying to finish homework fast because this way; you will not get stuck somewhere along the line having realized only after starting on a particular task that what was needed was already done and thus requiring going back for materials or changing the steps.
Finish all your tasks within shortest time frame possible while ensuring that they are also done to the required standard. When finishing homework fast, you should remember that a few mistakes will go unnoticed when working quickly and thus cutting down on time spent which is why it is advisable to spend more time on things that require accuracy or where deductive reasoning might be involved so as not to have any room left for being doubted or questioned about how you did something. Do not rush through things because this could lead to errors and unless you want to have a lot of explaining to do then try finishing your homework fast without rushing!
Step 8: Ask for help:
If the above steps don’t work for you, it is time you asked for help from friends, family or an essay writing service .
- Find homework buddies : Studying in groups can significantly help in improving quality of work output since teamwork enables students with different strengths and weaknesses to work together for a common purpose. You should thus share your tasks with peers so as to experience how others will view the assignment from different angles and also learn a new way of doing things which you might not have considered before.
- Use a college homework help website : This is actually one of the best ways to finish your homework fast which is easy. You can pay someone to do homework and get you homework completed on time. Click here to get your homework done fast.
- Get help from friends and family : If asking for assignment help or finding a homework buddy is not your thing, you can ask your closest friends or knowledgeable family members to help you do your homework fast.
Conclusion – How to do homework efficiently and quickly
All in all, these are several tips you can use to do homework efficiently and quickly so that time is not wasted while working on assignments which leaves other tasks open for later or during another study session. Try prioritizing what needs doing first and foremost, see everything as more like a game than actual work, remove distractions by having good lighting, ventilation, and fresh air available before starting anything new (among many other things), and try treating studying like an activity one would do with friends instead of strictly business.

2. Place your learning materials in an organized manner
Instead of wasting your time searching for your books, papers, pencils, and other supplies, keep all your study materials in one specific location.

So that, the searching time will be saved and you can complete your homework quickly.
3. Keep your gadgets away
If you keep your smartphones nearby, while doing your assignment, you will get tempted to frequently check your social media accounts, or get distracted by chatting with your friends through text messages or phone calls. So, in order to stay focused and finish your homework earlier, isolate yourself in a place that doesn’t have electronic gadgets.
4. Build a homework plan
In case, you are loaded with multiple assignments, first, prepare a list of all the tasks you need to complete. Then, decide how much time you need to spend on your homework collectively.

5. Set a timer
First, analyze how much time it will take to do your assignments. Next, start the timer and begin writing your assignment. Create an aim to complete your academic work within the estimated time. If you do so, you can get your homework done faster. The advantage here is that setting a timer will help you to quickly snap back to focus, even if you get distracted.
6. Pay attention in class
Teachers give homework mainly to improve your understanding of a subject. More commonly, your supervisor will give assignments related to the topic that is taught in your classes. So, you can quickly finish your homework, if you actively listen to your classes. Furthermore, paying attention in class will make your assignments less confusing.
7. Begin your homework once you reach home
If you begin your homework late in the evening, you will need to work until late at night to complete all of your assignments. Basically, working until midnight or early in the morning will exhaust you. Therefore, to avoid this, start working on your assignment when you get home from school. You will have more time to complete your tasks if you work earlier. In addition, if you finish earlier, you might even have time to relax and participate in additional leisure activities.
8. Complete your least favorite task first
Doing the challenging task first will make you feel relaxed and you can concentrate with more interest on other favorite tasks. Most importantly, your stress level will decrease and your confidence will increase if you finish your least favorite homework first. Also, after finishing tough tasks you can plan accordingly and complete your remaining assignments earlier.
9. Learn with friends or classmates
In case, you experience any challenges in doing your homework alone, form a group with your buddies or team up with your knowledgeable classmates and then work on your assignments. This method will definitely help you to update your knowledge and complete your homework faster.
10. Prioritize your tasks based on the due date
Plan to complete your assignment by the upcoming due date if you have a lot of assignments. Avoid prioritizing tasks with low priority. Doing low-priority tasks first would make it difficult for you to complete high-priority tasks by the deadline. So, always try to complete the most important and close-to-due tasks sooner.
11. Search for data on the web
Are you stuck with your assignment? If yes, then instead of staying in the same place, seek assistance from the internet. For assignments on any subject topic, you can find ideas and relevant data on the internet. Then, with the ideas gathered, you can do your homework on time.
12. Don’t hesitate to take assistance
If you have no idea how to do your homework, then get assignment writing help from your tutor, friends, or online assignment helpers . Taking assistance from experts prior will be useful for you to complete your assignment before the due date and score impressive grades.
13. Concentrate on one task at a time
If you want to finish all your tasks faster with high precision, then try to focus on each task at a time. Never skip a task in the middle and begin the next task. Create a proper schedule and complete one assignment first before jumping to the next one.
14. Take breaks at regular intervals
Focusing on your homework for long hours will make you tired and slow down your learning process. In order to keep your brain and body active, take about 5 minutes break, every 25 minutes. While you are on the break, go for a walk or do a little stretching exercise, so that you will feel energetic and refreshed, and can complete your homework faster. Even to feel brisk and enhance your memory, drink plenty of water and eat energy-rich food.
15. Reward yourself for the activity you complete
Once you finish your assignment faster, plan to meet your friend, play your favorite game, go out for dinner, etc. If you organize a plan or a fun activity for completing your homework earlier, you will stay motivated and work efficiently.
16. Find a quiet room or place to sit to do homework
It is important to find a quiet place to sit and do homework. The more the place is quiet the greater you can concentrate on your homework which ultimately can help you to complete your homework faster. The kitchen table and window seemed ‘okay’ when you were younger and homework didn’t require as much concentration. It is best to find a place to stay away from distractions and noise, like a study or bedroom, to complete homework faster.
17. Avoid studying on your bed
You must avoid studying in bed instead sit at a table or desk that you can set your computer on and is comfortable to work at. Keep all your devices aside while you study because these devices can cause a distraction and make homework take longer time to complete or make you spend more time to complete your homework than required.
18. Tackle the hardest assignments first
Although it is tempting to start with the simple and easy stuff to get it out of the way, you should begin with the hard and complex ones. This is because you have the most energy and focus when you start doing your homework and it is best to use this mental power on the subjects that are most challenging. After that, when you feel tired, you can focus on the simpler questions/parts of your homework.
19. List tasks according to priority
In order to do homework faster, it is important to make a priority list of tasks or activities that are urgent, important, and tricky to complete. By prioritizing tasks, you can plan the order in which you will complete them, so that you can identify tasks that need your immediate attention, and that you can leave until later. Prioritizing tasks will help you know exactly what you have to do first whenever you sit down to do your homework.

20. Find a tutor
It is good to find a tutor who can help you complete your homework faster and with more accuracy. In this regard, you will need to consult an adult about taking professional learning assistance from a tutor because it generally costs money to hire a tutor. Tutors help students to get more explanations of the things taught in the classroom and this provides a chance to ask questions and work at your own pace.
21. Set desirable deadlines
In case a teacher has already given a deadline for you to submit your homework, try to put some new dates on your own, which are more prime to the submission dates already given by your teacher. It can support students to perform things in a more disciplined way, learning the best way to complete their homework faster, and prioritizing the activities on a regular basis.
22. Recognizing disturbing factors in the homework environment
It is important to recognize disturbances or factors that can disturb you when working on your homework. It helps students to know the external forces/factors that can distract them. Besides recognizing external environmental distractions, a student also needs to identify digital disturbances to avoid them. Digital distractions are harmful, and according to different studies, these factors can negatively influence the growth of a student’s study and most importantly, increase the time required for completing assignments.
23. Do homework at school
It is very effective to do the homework at school in order to submit it on time. There are fewer disturbances and no restrictions on doing homework in school. In fact, it is the best time to complete homework when your teacher has just taught you about the lessons and the study materials are still fresh in your head. This is a great strategy to do homework faster.
24. Avoid multitasking
If you want to complete your homework on time, then you must avoid being involved in multitasking. Schedule one task or homework at a time. Multitasking saves time but it often results in taking longer time to do more tasks, specifically when the submission deadlines are close. You also need to avoid multitasking like scrolling over social media or involving in communication with friends over the phone.

Unveiling How To Finish Homework Faster: Maximizing Efficiency in 2023
Are you searching for how to finish homework faster? If yes, then have a close look at some of the best tips on how to finish homework faster.
Table of Contents
Homework is an essential part of every student’s academic journey. It serves as a valuable tool for reinforcing concepts learned in the classroom, developing critical thinking skills, and preparing for exams.
However, the burden of homework can often become overwhelming, leaving students feeling stressed and struggling to manage their time effectively. If you find yourself constantly racing against the clock to complete your assignments, fret not!
In this article, we will provide you with practical strategies and effective tips on how to finish your homework faster without compromising on quality.
By implementing these techniques, you can reclaim your time, reduce stress levels, and achieve better academic performance. So, let’s dive in and discover the secrets to mastering the art of finishing homework efficiently.
How To Finish Homework Faster?
Have a close look at how to finish homework faster.
Start by identifying the assignments that have higher grades or approaching deadlines. By tackling these tasks first, you ensure that you allocate sufficient time and effort to the most important ones.
For example, if you have a math assignment worth a significant portion of your grade due in two days, prioritize working on that before starting other assignments with less weightage. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Create a Study Environment
Find a quiet and comfortable place where you can concentrate without distractions. This could be a designated study area in your home, a library, or a quiet corner in a café.
Make sure you have all the necessary materials readily available, such as textbooks, notebooks, pens, and a reliable internet connection.
Creating a conducive study environment helps you stay focused and productive. For instance, if you find that you concentrate better in a well-lit room with minimal noise, set up your study space accordingly. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Break It Down
Homework can often feel overwhelming, especially when faced with a large task. To make it more manageable, break down your homework into smaller tasks or sections.
For example, if you have an essay to write, break it down into brainstorming ideas, creating an outline, writing the introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion.
By focusing on one specific task at a time, you can make progress gradually, preventing procrastination and feeling overwhelmed. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Set Realistic Goals
Before each study session, set clear and achievable goals. Rather than aiming to complete an entire assignment in one sitting, break it down into smaller milestones.
For example, if you have a math chapter to study, set a goal to complete a certain number of exercises or grasp specific concepts during the study session. Celebrate your achievements as you reach each milestone.
Such as taking a short break or rewarding yourself with a small treat. This approach helps you stay motivated and boosts your confidence as you make progress. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Use Effective Time Management Techniques
Time management is crucial for finishing homework faster. One technique you can consider is the Pomodoro Technique. Set a timer for a specific period, such as 25 minutes (known as a Pomodoro), and work on a task with full focus until the timer goes off.
Then, take a short break, around 5 minutes, to relax and recharge. Repeat this cycle, and after completing a few Pomodoros, take a longer break of 15-30 minutes. This technique helps maintain focus, increases productivity, and prevents burnout.
It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Distractions can significantly hamper your progress. Before starting your homework, turn off notifications on your phone or put it on silent mode, and place it out of sight.
Consider logging out of social media accounts or using website blockers to avoid temptation. Inform your family members, roommates, or anyone around you about your study time, so they respect your need for uninterrupted focus.
By creating a distraction-free environment, you can concentrate solely on your homework and complete it more efficiently. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Seek Help When Needed
Don’t hesitate to seek help when you encounter difficulties or have questions about your homework. Reach out to your teachers, classmates, or online resources for clarification or guidance.
For example, if you’re struggling with a specific math problem, you can ask your teacher for assistance, discuss it with classmates, or find online tutorials or forums that explain the concept.
By seeking help promptly, you can overcome obstacles more efficiently and avoid unnecessary delays. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Keeping your study materials, notes, and assignments organized can save you precious time and prevent unnecessary stress. Use folders, binders, or digital tools to store and organize your papers.
Label them clearly, so you can quickly locate the resources you need. Create a structured system for managing your assignments, such as using a planner or calendar to track due dates and important deadlines.
By staying organized, you can easily access the materials you require and avoid last-minute scrambling to find information. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Take Regular Breaks
Taking regular breaks is essential for maintaining focus and productivity. After intense study sessions, give yourself short breaks to recharge and relax.
Engage in activities that help you unwind and rejuvenate, such as stretching, listening to music, going for a short walk, or chatting with a friend.
However, it’s crucial to keep your breaks within a reasonable time limit to prevent them from becoming prolonged distractions. Use a timer or set specific break durations to ensure you return to your homework on time. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Utilize Technology Tools
Leverage technology to streamline your homework process. There are numerous apps, websites, and tools available that can assist you in organizing your tasks, managing your time, and providing study aids.
For instance, you can use task management apps like Todoist or Trello to create to-do lists and set reminders for your assignments.
Online calendars like Google Calendar can help you track deadlines and schedule study sessions. Additionally, educational websites and online resources can provide additional support and explanations for challenging topics. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Review and Revise
Allocate time for reviewing and revising your homework before submission. This step ensures that you haven’t overlooked any errors or missed important points.
Proofread your work to check for grammar and spelling mistakes, and verify that you’ve followed the assignment guidelines. Reviewing your homework allows you to make necessary corrections and improvements, ultimately leading to a better quality submission. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Maintaining motivation throughout the homework process is crucial for finishing it faster. Find ways to keep yourself inspired and enthusiastic about completing your assignments.
For example, you can set rewards for completing tasks, such as treating yourself to a favorite snack or taking a short break to do something enjoyable.
Additionally, creating a study group or study with friends can foster a sense of accountability and camaraderie, making the process more engaging and motivating. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Accountability can significantly enhance your productivity and help you stay committed to finishing your homework in a timely manner.
Find a study buddy or join a study group where you can share your progress, discuss difficult concepts, and hold each other accountable.
You can set regular check-ins or study sessions with your study buddy or group to review each other’s work and provide feedback.
When you have someone to answer to and share your progress with, you are more likely to stay focused, motivated, and finish your homework efficiently.
By implementing these strategies and incorporating them into your homework routine, you can optimize your time, increase productivity, and ultimately finish your homework faster. It is one of the important step for how to finish homework faster.
Remember that finding the techniques that work best for you may require some experimentation, so be open to adjusting and refining your approach as needed.
What is the fastest way to finish your homework?

Tips for finishing your homework faster.
Students tend to wait until the last minute to finish the homework. It is not an advisable thing to do since homework needs to get done within the lecturer’s exact frame of time. Therefore, you should spend this time researching your studies and points that you need to write to get a revamped paper and get back good results. However, we will show you how to finish your homework faster with the tips below.
Round up everything that you might need before you start working on your homework
It is the first thing you need to do because you have to gather all the resources you need before working on a task. You will burn out if you turn to divert to look for resources to keep on with your writing. When you cannot locate something, you’ll just be wasting a lot of your precious time, and when you get back after a stressful moment of looking up for information or a particular resource, you may find it hard to start where you left, and you may even lose the flow of your text. You need to plan yourself efficiently and know the exact things that you need to complete your homework and set them up before you begin writing.
Ensure that you plan properly
Planning is an integral part of doing almost anything. That also applies to homework. Students would jump directly into doing the very thing they need to do, which is to write the task, which is wrong, and rotation. You should understand how much time you will set aside to finish your homework and list all the chores you need to check on. Try and estimate the amount of time it will take you to complete all the tasks and check whether you’ll have additional time after planning for the same. After preparing for everything, the next mission is to find a spot for work.
Come up with a timetable
To finish your work faster, you need to plan how you’re going to do it. Ensure that you set a time frame for each task in your homework, give yourself enough time to finish each problem, and then head over to other tasks. In case you were setting up a schedule, ensure that you stick to it and get loyal and honest with it. Avoid the temptation to continually check on your social media sites because it will slow down your process if you said to do a task within an hour, commit it, and ensure that you finish it within that time frame.
Be efficient in your workings
As you write your homework, avoid doing the whole work in a sitting without breaks because that will affect you mentally, and you may even end up handing in up work deny you the chance to score better grades. Ensure that you take it easy and deal with the efficiency whenever you’re writing your homework. If you feel that your mind is tired, leave it and take a rest, take a walk, then come back to it with a fresh mind to continue. Ensure that you make it perfect, even if it means giving it enough time as it needs.
Several students do their homework while watching television, which could be one of the biggest distractions in human history. To finish your assignment faster, try and work in a quiet place in a serene environment with a few or no distractions. Ensure that you put off your phone or put it on airplane mode, avoid the constant hard to check your laptop PC or your phone, and I’m sure that the surrounding of your workplace is peaceful.
If you entirely focus on your work, you will have a simple time to do it because your brain will focus on one element, and therefore you want to be dangling around many other memories or thoughts.
