To the Student:
Would you benefit from an objective, experienced, caring guide at this stage in your life? One who could encourage you to make the most of your attributes with confidence, and how to rise with, and, sometimes, above your challenges? Depending on your age, we will help with anything from the balance of social, school, extra-curricular, emotional, spiritual, and physical shape, to how to be in particular social situations, to how to live your best life with ADHD, ASD, Learning Difference. Or maybe you need specifically academic-related support in a particular subject or subjects, or support from one who specializes with different learning profiles. Our sessions are customized to your greatest needs and desires for your life.
To the Parent:
Do you know that your child needs extra support? And that you are not the one to give it to them. There is a great relief for parents when they can have another caring adult, coach and/or tutor their child/teen. We want you to be able to focus on the main thing in your relationship with your child/teen - the relationship, while we take on more of the executive functioning and academic support.
Our Inspired Student Offerings:
Students need basically the same skills no matter what the subject matter. Our coaches work with students to teach them the most vital skills to be confident and successful in the classroom setting. This program covers studying, notetaking, memorization, higher level thinking strategies, effective communication skills, and integrates some life coaching components.
Executive Functioning Coaching
Many of the students we work with have ADHD, or simply are challenged with executive functioning skills, and need particular coaching in the areas of procrastination, prioritizing, organization, impulse control e.g., electronics usage), planning out long term projects, using a calendar effectively, setting and attaining goals, knowing how their brain works, and learning to celebrate themselves as they are. Our 1-to-1 EFS coaching also includes what is covered in the Academic Coaching. program.
We offer Orton-Gillingham instruction, which is a multi-sensory approach for individuals having difficulty with reading, spelling, and writing of the sort associated with dyslexia.
Tutoring for All Types of Learners¹
Our speciality is working with all types of learning profiles. Our tutors are trained to use methodologies that match your child’s/teen's learning profile. Math, Spanish, French, Sciences, English, Orton-Gillingham: Reading/Writing/Spelling and History.
¹One in five children in the U.S. have learning and attention issues such as dyslexia and ADHD, but as noted in the new State of Learning Disabilities: Understanding the 1 in 5 (www.ncld.org/StateofLD), 48 percent of parents believe incorrectly that children will outgrow these brain-based difficulties, and 33 percent of educators say that sometimes what people call a learning disability is really just laziness.
“Children with learning and attention issues are as smart as their peers and with the right support can achieve at high levels, but a lack of early or effective interventions leads too many kids on a downward spiral,” says Mimi Corcoran, President and CEO of NCLD.
What sets our student programming apart from others?
1. Understanding Inspiration
We teach children about the importance of inspiration and to get behind the “why” to get more motivated. Our experience shows that it is vital for students to know how mindset, self-care (nutrition, sleep, and hard exercise), and other factors play a role in their level of motivation.
2. Mindfulness, Focusing and Alignment Exercises
We are dedicated to your student holistically being his/her best student and self. So we open up our session with cross-lateral exercises, a walk in nature, and/or a mindfulness exercise to get them tuned in and turned on for their session.
A couple of times, at least, depending on the student, we will take Brain Breaks to sharpen the saw and make the most of our session. The opening of our sessions, and the Brain Breaks are also modeling for how to sustain a sharper focus and motivation.
3. Most Effective Practices, Combined with High Level Coaches/Tutors
Our coaching and teaching is guided by researched, evidence-based practices, by coaches/tutors with many years experience as educators and parents, and cultivated knowledge/wisdom regarding what most benefits this particular student. All of our coaches/tutors have master's degrees, their own teens, and are hand-picked, high quality humans.
