Academic Coaching

Our academic coaches work one-on-one with students to help them become more organized, more productive, and more efficient learners. We collaborate with students in their pursuits to reach their academic academic goals. Our coaches work with students to teach strategies and skills to help students grow and develop their executive functions. We strive to help students become more effective and independent learners.

Executive Functions

Executive functions are a set of neurologically-based skills that help us organize, plan, prioritize, and pay attention. Though these skills are rarely directly taught or assessed in classrooms, they can often be the underlying factors to poor school performance. Our team develops structured, personalized programs to establish and nurture these increasingly valuable skills with students. Our coaches work with students in a one-on-one setting to help grow and develop the following skills:

  • Goal Setting
  • Organization
  • Planning
  • Time Management
  • Writing Skills
  • Study Skills
  • Note Taking
  • Initiation
  • Attention
  • Emotional Regulation
  • Self-Evaluation

Workshops

Throughout the year, our team offers Sunday workshops, summer bootcamps, and transition packages that help students refine specific skills that will help them reach their academic goals. Each workshop is a one-hour session that focus on the psychology, skill-building, and execution of a particular skill. Our bootcamps, college prep programs, and transition packages develop executive functioning skills and prepare students for the transition from middle school to high school or from high school to college. A list of all our workshops can be found here.

College Coaching

The college years are academically demanding, stressful, and daunting. Our college coaches work virtually or in-person with students all over the country to help empower them to become successful students. Students will learn organizational, planning, and decision-making skills that will help them succeed in college and beyond.

Special Ed Advocacy

For parents, navigating the world of special education can be complex and stressful. Our team of special education experts helps parents navigate the different challenges they face in the world of paperwork, reports, and 504/IEP plans. We advise parents on best practices for working with non-school clinicians, reviewing reports, analyzing school documents, communicating with school staff, navigating IEP and 504 meetings, and understanding school options to ensure their student is receiving high-quality education and support.
