The ability to plan, prioritize, and complete work isn’t limited to only academic assignments. These are skills used in everything we do, from managing our work and family calendars to how we set and reach our goals.

For students, summer is an optimal time to work on building skills without the demands and stress of a full schedule. Whether it is through summer assignments, parental expectations (e.g. reading, chores, etc), test-prep, or a student’s personal hobbies/interest, executive function strategies can be modeled, practiced and learned so we are off to a more productive school year.


The StudyPro coaching starts with a personalized executive function and study skills self-assessment.  After reviewing the student’s areas for growth, we then identify and plan projects we can work on to support that growth.  We also review students’ current work process so they can better understand how and where EF and study skills are causing “friction” and the strategies they can use to fill the gaps.

Student Self-Inventory and Assessment
The first step to improvement is being honest about our areas for growth.  Many students don’t truly understand executive functions (EF) and so can’t self-identify where they need support.

Summer is a great time to “take inventory” of EF skills to better understand how to leverage strengths as well as to focus in on strategies to fill any EF skill gaps.  The StudyPro offers a “Signature Strengths and Strategies” executive function self-assessment which is where we start all summer EF coaching.  This report provides an assessment of both EF and study skills and will be the roadmap for our summer work.

Anyone can call themselves an Executive Function coach, but not all are. Executive functions help us manage our time, initiate, and plan, which can be difficult for any student, especially when their routines have been so dramatically impacted. 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 including special educators, school psychologists, and 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 online learning, to students with ADHD, executive function challenges and/or other learning differences.
