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 Boulder, CO 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, ourBoulder 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 Rebecca in Boulder, CO
The student and I began work on her research paper, which she is doing on George Halas and the beginnings of the NFL.  When I arrived, she had two sources, and when I left she had four with one or two more possible.  The minimum is 4.  She seems really excited about the project, and she began reading two of the sources, taking notes, and thinking about her thesis.  I think we came up with something that isn't definite yet, but it will give her some parameters as far what to read for in her research. The student said she would and could read the book "Bear with Me" this weekend, which I think is a really good idea.  It's not too long, and I think the level is definitely good for her, and not too easy for her.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Rudy in Boulder, CO
The student had her geometry exam over transformations last week. We reviewed her exam which covered reflections, translations, and rotations. It also briefly touched on parallel and perpendicular slopes/lines.  We then reviewed for her next exam which covered the Segment Addition Postulate and Angle Addition Postulate.   She seems to be getting the information well.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Trina in Boulder, CO
The student and I got together to review for her upcoming math test. She is definitely ready for the test. She did very well with the review - we only had to practice finding the period of circular functions.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Carolyn in Boulder, CO
We went over irregular preterite verbs, being sure to be careful about spelling and accent marks.  We practiced pronunciation, and then I gave him a vocabulary quiz on all his words for the current chapter. He also had ten questions to compose for his class homework assignment.  We practiced pronunciation, and went over strategies to remember irregular verbs.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Alexander in Boulder, CO
We covered derivative applications. The student got better at understanding asymptotes in the context of graph sketching. He is going to do more problems in the book.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Ryan in Boulder, CO
We watched an episode of the news and talked about the repercussions of certain current events. We then did a small writing game based on brainwashing (DPRK inspired) to answer the question: can people be brainwashed? We then took a short reading quiz on the next chapters of Game of Thrones and discussed the work.
