We know that with effective executive function and study skills, someone who starts off struggling can thrive with targeted support, coaching, and practice. Often times, balancing school, sports, work, and home can get in the way of your child’s capacity to express his or her full potential. Our organizational support experts help our students with time management, organization, planning and flexibility and give them the tools they need to make better choices and avoid procrastination.
There is no one-size-fits-all approach to effective study skills! Using your child's own insights as a starting point, our highly trained faculty design an individualized learning and organization system to support the study skills each student needs to become a more efficient and effective learner.
Executive function and study skills are the organizational processes that help students pay attention to their surroundings, prioritize their work, manage their time, and get things done. When your child is busy balancing a full course load and many different extracurricular activities, executive function and study skills allow your child to effectively complete homework while also assessing for quality. For some students, they need support better utilizing their existing organizational tools and habits. For others, they need help prioritizing tasks and realistically estimating how long each one will take them. Better executive functioning skills allow your child to make the most of their time and efforts!
Whether focusing on academics or beyond, executive function and study skills are crucial life skills to have. Personal organizational effectiveness can help students maximize their learning in the classroom, while also allowing them to balance activities outside of school. For college and career, being able to make positive decisions about his or her time will grant your child more opportunities for success. College students often comment on the level of time management skills they need to navigate life after high school. Similarly, research has shown that time management and executive functioning skills are far more crucial to to professional success as an adult than academic skills.
Improving executive function and study skills is a process that not only involves the right instruction but also the consistency and flexibility to adjust to your student’s growth over time. Our team is dedicated to collaborating with you to ensure your child is fully supported. From regular check-ins, to emailing your child’s teachers to coordinate process and workflow, to helping kids avoid procrastination and finish their homework more efficiently, we are here to ensure your child is empowered!

We normally start off our organizational skills support with an in-depth assessment of your child’s existing skills and needs. Our faculty observes your student's time management, organization, planning and flexibility through a series of proprietary simulations and exercises. Being able to target the areas of your child's study skills needs allows us to have the most efficient and effective sessions possible. We know that students are incredibly busy and time is particularly precious, so we want to ensure that our time is best used to help optimize their skills as quickly as possible. Sign up for an assessment today to receive a full report regarding your child's current organizational skills, where he or she can continue to grow, and what our recommendations are.
Our study skills assessment provides our faculty the observations and data we need to build customized learning plans. These plans are designed to address each student's specific challenges while also leveraging areas of strength. Our team pulls from a wealth of proprietary tools, and even creates new ones when existing strategies are not enough. Faculty experts pinpoint processes that are holding your student back, model effective study habits, and purposefully assign responsibility to your student with the goal of him or her reaching independence. Building new habits can be a challenging process and it takes a meaningful mutual commitment to providing guidance that puts students in a position to put forth their best work.
Our specially trained and dedicated faculty members work with each student to develop the processes and frameworks needed to achieve their objectives. For executive function and study skills support to be successful, we typically see students 2-3 times a week depending on the level of support they require. During sessions, students are introduced to organizational tools that match their learning profile, given space to implement them, and provided immediate feedback. Your child’s instructional team is also never alone in helping your student succeed - all of our faculty members meet on a weekly basis to discuss EVERY student’s progress and check in with our global education support team at least twice every month to ensure they are using the most effective tools we have available.
Parents should always know what we are doing with their kids and why we are doing it. We have the most robust reporting processes in the industry to ensure that parents are properly informed. We regularly call all of our parents and offer detailed progress report meetings for each of our students.
