Academic skills are the skills that prepare students to learn well. They include organization, time management, goal setting and tracking, communication, and study skills. We are here to help all students learn to help themselves through coaching them to be able to utilize these skills independently over time.
Resiliency is the ability to overcome difficult situations, bounce back from failure, and learn from our mistakes. Resiliency is developed over time through use but there are strategies that can be taught to help students more fully develop their resilience.
Executive Functioning Skills
In addition to academic skills and resiliency we also are happy to work with students on executive function skills. According the Harvard University Center on the Developing Child (2019) “Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully.” These skills are very important for success in school, at work, and in our daily living tasks. Some people pick these up easily in life without any formal teaching on the subject but many do not. Often students who are struggling or are not working up to their potential would benefit from improving their executive functioning skills.
In and out of the classroom we have worked with students on their academic skills, executive functioning, self regulation, and resiliency skills for the past 20 years. We offer weekly coaching to help students improve their skills and organize their lives for success now and in the future.
Call for consultation. We offer hourly and an 8 week curriculum package.
