As a professional color consultant and instructor of QC Design School’s Color Consultant Course, I tutor my students on a daily basis. I assist them as they navigate through the coursework and assignments, with the ultimate goal of supporting my students in their future career aspirations – whatever they may be.
I succeed when you succeed. So, today I am sharing my top 6 tips to help you pass your Color Consultant Course assignments with flying colors!
1. Commit to Your Color Consultant Course and Make the Time
You did it! You made the life-changing decision to up your color game and career by taking the QC Design School’s Color Consultant Course. Huge congratulations on taking a giant leap!
Now that you’ve made this very big and exciting decision to move forward, it’s important to commit to doing the coursework. Recognize that this course is a huge step in increasing your career potential, income, clientele, marketing, and most importantly, your overall skill set. Arrange your schedule in such a way that will allow you to truly focus on the assignments, be able to dive into each assignment, and give it your full attention.
For some of you, this might mean setting time aside first thing in the morning or last thing at night (depending on when you focus the best). Do what works for you and keep your eye on the goal! Your future self will thank you!
2. Elaborate on Assignments
One of the best things you can do on each of your assignments is elaborate on your answers. One-sentence-answers make it difficult for your tutor to truly know if you’re grasping the material. Honestly, it can also read as you being unmotivated.
You have already committed to the process of receiving priceless business training. So, why not take the time to really jump in and enjoy the opportunity? You have the chance to learn and expand your skills through a carefully designed curriculum. Your course and its assignments are meant to challenge you, and offer the very best opportunity to become a talented color consultant and designer.
Your tutor wants to hear your feedback on each assignment question, as well as how you’ve arrived at each solution and answer.
3. Check Your Work Twice
Many times, a tutor has to unfortunately return an assignment because links are missing, answers are left blank, or photos are not uploaded correctly. This not only wastes time for both the student and their tutor – it prevents students from completing their coursework in a timely way.
Always double check your assignments to be sure everything has been uploaded correctly. This will help ensure that your tutor can grade and submit your unit back to you faster. It’s also helpful – and encouraged – to not duplicate pins on different assignments.
4. Be True to Your Unique Color Consultant Style
As a color consultant student, it’s important to remain true to your unique style. This includes you color preferences and way of designing.
You came to this course because you already have the talent, motivation, and ability to reach your goals. Now your tutor is here to help you zoom in on that talent! While completing each assignment as written, you should also take this opportunity to self-reflect. Decide what your preferred style is, who your ideal client is, and what you envision your future color consultant business to look like.
Rather than providing answers that you think your tutor wats to see, bring in your own style and talent as well!
5. Remember to Pace Yourself
This has been a crazy year! If you’re juggling your current job, home life, student life, and everything in-between, remember to pace yourself. It’s better to take your time when completing the Color Consultant Course. This way, you know you’ll be getting everything possible out of this experience.
You don’t want to rush things just for the sake of getting to the next step in your goals quicker. This is NOT a competition! Whenever your timeline allows you to complete the course – that is the right and perfect time for YOU. It can be exciting thinking about your future business as a color consultant, and it may make you want to rush.
But don’t! Appreciate where you are, and know that your future, successful self will thank you for your patience! Take advantage of the flexible, online format that QC Design School provides and do what works for you.
