Executive Function Tutoring
If your child struggles with organizational skills, task initiation or completion, planning, time management, or any other executive function related skill, our executive function tutors can help. Executive function skills can be more difficult for some students, and having an executive function coach or tutor to help guide your child through assignments or projects, as well as provide strategies and tips that they can use at school or independently, can benefit them tremendously.

What does executive function tutoring look like?
Executive function tutoring is different for each child, depending on their strengths and areas that need improvement. Typically the students we work with who require executive function coaching meet with their tutors for one hour sessions once or twice a week. During this time the student typically has assignments or projects from school that they need help completing. The tutor and child work together to come up with a reasonable goal for completing the tasks and then get started. The tutor is there to offer support to help the child stay on task and organized.
Working with an executive function tutor can help students create systems that work for them. For example, some students benefit from more frequent but structured breaks. Other students benefit from visual checklists so they have a more concrete understanding of the progress they’re making towards assignments.

What is working memory’s role in executive function?
Imagine working memory as your child’s mental sticky note pad – it’s where they jot down and play around with information for a short while. Executive function is like the brain boss overseeing tasks, and working memory is its right-hand helper. When your child needs to follow directions, understand tricky stuff, or tackle complex homework, they’re tapping into their working memory. Having a tutor can help improve a child’s working memory.
Tutors can bring in fun games and activities that exercise this mental sticky note pad, making it stronger. It’s like hitting the gym for the brain! With personalized attention, tutors can figure out where your child might be struggling and introduce cool tricks to improve memory and tackle tasks more easily. Think of a tutor as your child’s coach, helping them improve their brain power and handle school challenges like a pro.
