How can a Executive Functioning tutor help you?

What is Executive Functioning?

Executive functioning is a term used in educational psychology to describe the cognitive processes that drive organization, planning and rule acquisition. Executive Functioning is the ability to regulate ones sensory experiences across a vast array of different disciplines and environments.  It promotes the learners ability to organize, engage, and integrate all areas of learning in and outside of the classroom environment. When students struggle with executive functioning, they are often disorganized, have difficulty planning ahead, don’t follow through on expected tasks, and/or give up on tasks easily.

By offering tutoring for Executive Functioning, Varsity Tutors helps the learner to increase processing speed, emotional well-being, self-regulation of attention, and organization of current and new tasks.

This sounds like my child. Should I be concerned?

Difficulty with executive functioning is common among school-age children. Organizational skills and study habits are not consistently taught in school settings, so children often rely on their own instincts for how to handle organizational tasks, homework, test preparation and other significant aspects related to academic success. Every child handles these aspects differently; if your child is struggling in any of the following areas, Varsity Tutors can help:

  • Using an assignment notebook
  • Taking complete, useful notes in class
  • Completing assignments fully and on-time
  • Completing long-term projects fully and on-time
  • Preparing for quizzes and tests by studying (separately from doing homework)
  • Scheduling time each day for homework and studying outside of school
  • Sticking to pre-made schedules for school and non-school related tasks
  • Breaking down tasks into manageable pieces

How does Varsity Tutors help students overcome these issues?

Our experienced directors in Albany, NY begin by assessing the specific areas in which your child is struggling by asking specific questions that pinpoint difficulties. Once we have established the areas to work on, ourAlbany directors will select a tutor who can provide individualized, one-on-one instruction that will support your child’s development in these areas.

How can I monitor progress in Executive Functioning?

There are three easy ways that parents can monitor their child’s progress:

  • Be a part of the solution: Monitor your child’s assignment notebook, backpack and grades every day. Parents who are involved and ask questions help their children to stay on track.
  • Be a motivator: Keep an eye on your child when they study or work on school-related tasks. Praise any improvement you see your child making verbally. This will keep your child motivated while keeping you informed of their progress.
  • Ask questions: Speak with your child’s tutor, teachers, coaches, and any other adults that your child works with on a regular basis. Ask them if they see improvements in the specific areas that your child is working to improve. Their input is very valuable to measuring your child’s success.

Session Summaries by Executive Functioning Tutors

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Elnora in Albany, NY
The student and I had a productive session. She was concerned about the completion of one particular quiz (referring to her Leadership course) because her class was just provided access to course materials, etc. However, she was able to complete it successfully and it was a syllabus quiz that happened to have had a high point value. She also completed another syllabus quiz related to her Science course and by having two attempts, she was able to increase her grade. In general, we also reviewed the overall structure of the Leadership course and the expectations of the course. She also did an excellent job in posting a response and follow up response to another student within the discussion board area of the Leadership course. The question was related to the definition of leadership and she also provided an example of a leader. The post was well written and referenced the textbook adding support.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Lynne in Albany, NY
The student had some questions regarding test taking strategies and remembering data for tests. He is actually doing some great things on his own - not waiting until the last minute to study, practicing vocabulary for Humanities and Spanish each day, and using his planner. I gave him some ideas about using acronyms for memorizing techniques, underlining main ideas in a reading passage, putting vocabulary on his cell phone, intuitively going with your first answer, and not stressing. He is very determined to keep his grades up, and he admits that he has really improved his study habits from last year in middle school. He's a great student.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Kevin in Albany, NY
The student is preparing for her upcoming quiz so we spent this session working on these concepts and journal entries relating to bad debt and provision for doubtful accounts, notes payable and receivable, interest revenue and receivable, contingent liabilities, and sales on account. She has a good attitude and is improving in understanding concepts.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Stacey in Albany, NY
During this session I learned about the student (likes, dislikes, prior strategies, etc.). I provided him with strategies to begin implementing gradually. He agreed to implement the strategy of preparing his clothes, etc., the night before and to utilize his phone planner more. We spoke about the use of varied planners (large calendar in his room, phone planner, and pocket planner). He was pleased with this session and is looking forward to the next session.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Ryan in Albany, NY
After talking about our reading and working a little bit more on essay corrections from the weekend assignment, I wanted to try something different. The student and I worked together through an old AP World History test that we had not studied for. I helped him to think out the answers, using the information on the test and the information we do know to eliminate wrong answers.
