organize learning – manage workload – reduce stress
Student intellect and organization are vastly different. The difference between academic struggle and academic success is often due to a shortage of learning strategies.
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. Often, students need help devising a system for learning that is based on executive functioning supports and sustained through accountability partnerships.
Our academic coaches take a customized approach to helping students organize, manage and conquer schoolwork. Educators teach the material; we teach the skills and strategies to help students master the material and set attainable goals.
