Sometimes even a simple task can be challenging for a student, so our tutors are trained to strengthen and improve executive functioning skills.
This topic entails various mental skills that help our brains organize information and act upon them, especially in a school setting (such as planning and organizing assignments, remembering tasks/information, prioritizing assignments, paying attention and getting started on assignments). Executive functioning skills also assist students with using information they've learned in the past to solve problems they are working on today in the classroom.
Some possible areas of difficulty that we help our students with:
- Making plans
- Organizing and prioritizing assignments
