1:1 EXECUTIVE FUNCTION COACHING
Executive Function (EF) Coaching focuses on the “process” of school. While tutoring helps students with “content” (aka math, science, etc.), EF coaching helps with the planning, managing, and executing of work across all subjects.
A TYPICAL COACHING SESSION:
1:1 Coaching provides structure and accountability for students as they work to develop their executive function and study skills. While each session is individualized based on the needs of your student, in a typical coaching session students will:
- Plan their weekly schedule by navigating online learning portals
- “Chunk” and set assignment goals
- Complete an individualized Work Plan (see pic)
- Develop initiation strategies to start and transition
- Identify strategies to manage distractions
In addition to the above, coaches work on individualized goals that may include reducing anxiety, perfectionism, and/or procrastination. Coaching notes, along with their weekly plan, are sent after each session.
THE BENEFITS OF INDIVIDUALIZED COACHING:
Our goal is to help students develop skills to work productively and independently. We want students to incorporate new strategies that they will use going forward. Examples of these tools/strategies include creation / use of:
- visual schedules,
- checklists to complete work,
- color-coding for organization of work and materials,
- online note-taking strategies,
- tech-tools to help manage distractions,
- apps to organize and submit their work (e.g. scannable),
- management of online resources (e.g. emails, google drive, bookmarks),
- and strategies to navigate their homework portals.
Strong executive function skills for the base to help students manage an increasingly demanding curriculum.
OUR COACHES / OUR APPROACH
Anyone can call themselves an Executive Function coach, but not all are. Being equipped with the tools and strategies that truly work for students requires very specific training. The StudyPro’s Executive Function coaches are Masters or Ph.D. level educators and are special educators, school psychologists, and/or learning specialists.
Our coaches all utilize a consistent and personalized method of planning, prioritization, initiation and time management that align with what is taught in our Study Skills and Strategies course. We have the experience to individualize strategies for every student — from those simply struggling with the transition to a more demanding curriculum, to students with ADHD, executive dysfunction, and/or other learning differences.
