Central Idea: The audience will learn different techniques and tips that will help them to make good grades.

When I was in high school I had this same problem. I had problems studying because I played sports throughout the whole school year. I didn’t know how to really balance my activities and my school work together. I later learned a few tricks and tips. These tips and tricks have helped me a lot through the rest of high school and now during college.
