You could get him a comfortable office chair for the desk and an angle poise lamp so that he doesn't get eye strain.

If there are already shelves in the room, I'd get him to allocate different things to different shelves.Have one shelf that holds all the work he will revise that day - so all text and exercise books and loose files go on that either the night before or first thing in the morning. One shelf of reference books and another to keep all the subjects he's not working on that day.

Maybe also put up a pinboard or magnetic board above the desk for revision/homework timetables, periodic table etc. And a desk tidy well stocked with pens, pencils, highlighters, glue sticks and rulers.

Look on Pinterest! There's loads of really good ideas for making the perfect study area on there.
