New England Tutors presents Evidence-based Executive Skills Coaching in collaboration with Dr. Peg Dawson to help students whose academic performance is suffering due to deficits in executive skills, including time and task management, planning, organization, impulse control, and emotional regulation.
In just a few minutes a day, Our Coaches can provide crucial support and instruction tailored to individual students’ needs. Executive Skills Coaching teaches each student a system for keeping track of assignments and due dates while developing the crucial executive skills needed to succeed in school and beyond. Students are guided and supported to build a daily study plan, manage their time, set short- and long-term goals, study for tests, and record their successes. They also get tools for evaluating their own executive skills in order to target their weaknesses and capitalize on strengths.
By introducing the concept of “recognizing how to learn by understanding the process of learning”, Executive Skills Coaches reach far beyond other student support services. We offer one on one coaching as well as small group.
