Even the strongest students struggle in certain subjects. Through our tutoring services, we support students in mastering challenging curriculum by offering them a variety of strategies, resources, and practice opportunities.
Taking tests can be challenging, but we have helped countless students to achieve their testing goals while alleviating some of the unnecessary stress that often accompanies the process. We will guide your student as he/she masters content and testing strategies while helping your whole family to keep everything in its proper perspective.
Through executive function coaching, we guide students as they develop skills that will serve them long after they have left the classroom. These skills include time management, organization, problem-solving, and critical thinking. This work is especially helpful for students who have been diagnosed with ADHD.
Executive Function Coaching for Adults is a great way to help adults fine-tune foundational skills such as planning, organizing, and time management.
Parent Coaching increases parents’ awareness and helps them to adjust their thoughts and actions in order to support their students’ development. Parents implement new habits and structures that help to keep everyone on the same page.
All of our services can be provided online if time or distance is a challenge. At the heart of our work are the relationships that we form with the students and the families, and thanks to technology, distance is no object.
Over the last 25 years, we have worked with hundreds of students and their families. In that time, we have come to believe one thing:
All of us are capable of great things, and everyone can use a little help getting there.
That’s where we come in.
