New England Tutors’ goal is to see that every student is inspired, challenged, and supported at all ages and abilities. To achieve this goal, and to reach as many students as possible, we have designed specialized training courses for Teachers, Case Managers, Therapists, Administrators, Para-Professionals, and even Parents, to help everyone work better with students.

In-Service Development Programs

Executive Skills Coaching
Peg Dawson, ED.D. will facilitate this dynamic course focusing on how to coach students with executive skills deficits. The course emphasizes the unique differences of coaching versus tutoring or strategy instruction to help students succeed. By introducing the concept of “recognizing how to learn by understanding the process of learning”, executive skills coaching reaches far beyond other student support services.  The course uses The Work Smart Academic Planner, developed by Peg. This 6-part course meets once a month for 2 hours. Each class provides detailed instruction, useful tools and a variety of methods that are effective.
