There are times when tutoring simply isn’t enough. Sometimes students may not see the changes in their grades due to additional factors. Sometimes the student is a poor self-starter meaning they are not able to independently get homework started and completed. They may also have poor time management skills, which inherently affects their ability to complete assignments on time, ultimately affecting their levels of frustration. In order for students of all ages to be successful, they must have a good handle of what we call their executive functions.
Time management, organization, self-regulation and attention span are some of the key skills that students need to be successful. These skills are called “Executive” skills because they are similar to the abilities a CEO or a head of a company would have to be able to demonstrate for a company to be successful and competitive.
Why is this relevant to student success?
Training and development in executive functioning skills not only gives students the tools to succeed in academics, but in all aspects of their life.
