Athena’s Guide to an A+ in your Event Planning Course: The F.E.E.D. Formula
Athena DeVonne is QC Event School’s newest tutor and a past graduate of the school. Over the past few months of grading students’ work, she’s come up with an interesting formula to help her students (and you!) achieve a perfect grade in their online course.
Once your enroll with QC, we want you to make the most out of your course in order to succeed in the industry! Athena’s F.E.E.D. Formula will help you get there. Watch the video to learn more!
The F.E.E.D Formula
Be sure to format your course work in the manner requested in the assignment. The assignment questions might ask you to describe something, list something, explain something, etc. Be sure to format your answer in the manner requested!
Athena wants you to engage in your assignments. If you’re describing a vision board or a party, for instance, you want to act as if your tutor is your event planning client. The client should be able to visualize exactly what you’re thinking, simply by reading your assignment. With all your assignments, strive to motivate and inspire your tutor!
When writing your assignment, don’t give short answers. Instead, go a little deeper and explain your answer. For example, instead of simply listing a color palette for an event, go a step further and explain exactly how those colors are going to be used in your event. Again, be sure the tutor will be able to visualize your event by reading your assignment!
This is such an important point we’re going to say it again. You want to paint a picture for the tutor in your assignment work. For example, if you have to describe a kid’s party, don’t just list “music, games, food” and nothing else. Instead, dig deeper: explain the type of music, what games you’d plan, the type of food, the specific decorations, etc. Even better, tell a story about how the kids are going to experience the party. That’s what an A+ assignment is made of!
Athena’s Takeaway Message
Don’t just do the bare minimum to get through the event planning course. Instead, take the time to put in your best effort and do the work. Your tutor is there to help you improve your skills, and you will get so much more out of them if you take the time to F.E.E.D. on your coursework!
