Keep in mind...
Your own strengths and weaknesses will help you determined which goals are attainable and which are out of reach
How much effort is required and how much effort you are willing to put in - are these requirements and demands realistic?
Is there a more achievable alternative goal?
How important is this goal? Is it really a priority?
TAP examples

* how can we make this goal more relevant?
Revised - I will play video games only after I have completed my homework
Goal 2- After looking over your student's file and chatting with them, you now know that history is an area of weakness for them, but math is a breeze. Your student wants to set this goal for the year: I want to obtain above 90% average in math this year.

Revised - I want to obtain a 75% average in history by the December exams.

* how can we give this goal a time-frame?
Revised - I will get started on my English essay by Friday night
Goal 2- I will study an hour of history every Tuesday and Thursday night

Important Points
Goals should be set in "positive" terms
They should use words that aim to achieve something, not avoid something
FEEDBACK is the key to your student's ability to be able to set SMART goals
With your scaffolding and feedback, your student will be able to learn how to manage their expectations, re-evaluate their goals, self-reflect and eventually become more successful and independent students
The mid-year review of the yearly goals will help with the evaluation and reflection process
Take time in your sessions to refer back to the established goals for the year and be sure to continuously review their relevance and important with the student
This means - be FLEXIBLE
That Being Said...
Remember to give your student time and space to reach their goal
The whole point of TAP is for you, the tutors, to facilitate your student's success
Do not expect progress to happen very quickly
Becoming an expert at goal-setting takes time and a will require a huge amount of support from you
Though you will keep re-evaluating and monitoring progress, make sure not to shut down or alter a goal too quickly
Keep in mind the tasks required to achieve most goals your student's set will be naturally difficult for them
Most of all - HAVE FUN!!!
