organize learning–manage workload–reduce stress–promote lifelong learning
Most teachers focus primarily on content—they expect students to inherently understand how to learn, how to study and how to tackle different homework patterns each night. Intellect and organization are vastly different. Too often, a child’s academic struggles are not intelligence-based; rather, some children need help devising a system for learning. We call our system the Playbook for Learning. While educators teach the material, we design a system for learning the material. Our Playbook for Learning is a customized academic guide to organizing, managing and conquering schoolwork.
At Learning Essentials, we believe strongly that the difference between academic struggles and academic successes often can be attributed to a shortage of learning strategies.
“My daughter’s Academic Coach has helped to harness her intelligence to achieve many of her academic goals. She has learned organizational skills that keep her headed in the right direction, making her more successful.”
“Since starting with our Academic Coach, our son has come a long way. He is now beginning to become organized and is taking pride in his work! We are truly grateful our son has a coach on his side who is cheering on and guiding him.”
“Her teachers were astounded by the turnaround. I want to thank you for our coach. She was insightful and encouraging. Our daughter learned strategies to organize herself and improve her study skills. I could not have asked for a better match.”
“I just wanted to thank you for the professionalism with which you and the tutor handled the tutoring of my son. Learning Essentials created a warm, comfortable environment in our home, and they were positive and encouraging toward him. In short, Learning Essentials provided a setting that made it easier for a child to relax and focus on the tasks at hand.”
