    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Apps to Help you Succeed

It is a well known fact that I spend too much time on my phone. I love Snapchat, Pokémon Go, and Google Docs. However, sometimes my phone time is super productive. I used the Brainscape flash card app and I absolutely love it. I make my own decks to study for my exams and the flash card app tracks how successful I am at studying. It tells me how many days in a row I’ve studied the deck, flash cards I frequently get wrong appear more often during my study sessions, and it tells me how many flash cards I have mastered. In the image above, the different colors represent my mastery level of the content on a scale of 1-5. As you can see, I have mastered or nearly mastered about a quarter of my cards but most of my cards are in the 2-3 range. In total, that adds up to me being 58% memorized on this deck which is pretty good since I started studying it yesterday! I will know I’m ready for my test when I get to 100% mastery on my flash cards. This app is super helpful and holds me accountable for my study habits. Plus, since it’s on my phone I have it with me all the time. I have found frequent, short study sessions work best for me with around 15-30 cards per session. I have my car passengers quiz me on our drive to school or in between classes. I can also share the decks I make with other people in my class so we can collaborate on study sessions.
