My son has ADHD, Anxiety, Dyslexia AND a learning disability. He's always attended private schools for learning disabled children, but when we had to move, public school and an IEP were the only option. I called VT in desperation because he was failing across the board and was so distressed. I know he just needed the right environment in order to thrive. After a couple tearful sessions with the VERY PATIENT tutor, my son began to "get it". Once he did, there was no stopping him!

Private executive function support in Columbus, OH

Receive personally tailored Executive Functioning support from exceptional tutors in a one-on-one setting. We help you connect with in-home and online tutoring that offers flexible scheduling and your choice of locations.

Varsity Tutors knows that school can be especially difficult for students who can't concentrate or have difficulty organizing their schoolwork, and we can find you an experienced Columbus tutor for students who struggle with executive function. Executive function refers to the self-regulation system within the brain, often called the "CEO of the brain." When your student struggles with executive function, they tend to have problems with keeping track of time, planning, following through, and keeping track of their belongings. Getting assistance from Columbus tutors for students who struggle with executive function is an excellent way to help your student learn how to manage these issues so they can reach for their potential in the classroom and beyond.

Problems with executive function can show up any time during your student's educational career. Younger students may have tantrums over minor things or always insist on doing things in a particular way. Middle school students may fail to finish what they started or have a more-than-normally messy backpack and desk. Teens may lose track of time and appear overly optimistic or unrealistic in their expectations, feeling frustrated when they fail to meet impossible goals they set for themselves.

Difficulties in executive function have nothing to do with a student's intelligence, but it can lead to problems in school. Happily, Columbus tutoring for students who struggle with executive function can offer your student ways to deal with their challenges in a way that mitigates the effects of struggling with executive function on their education.

What's covered by a Columbus tutor near me for students who struggle with executive function?

Any subject can be studied in your student's tutoring sessions, depending on their IEP or 504 Plan if they have one. While your child and their expert tutor are studying any subject, they can also work on executive function. For example, if your student has a book report coming up, Columbus tutors for students who struggle with executive function can teach them visualization methods so that as they read or hear the book, they also create a picture in their mind. This can aid their memory when it comes time to write the report.

Another possibility is for your child to work with their tutor specifically on executive functioning skills like playing a board game to help them with their sequential thinking skills or developing a color-coded checklist they can use each day as they pack and unpack their school bag. Tutors can use lessons that stimulate your student visually, auditorily, and kinesthetically to help concepts and skills take a firm grasp in their brains.

Columbus tutors for students who struggle with executive function can also focus sessions on developing coping skills your student can use in the classroom or elsewhere in public. A simple game of "What's this?" can help students be more tolerant and understanding of people with viewpoints that are different than theirs. There are many ways a student can learn to regulate their emotions and the highly personalized assistance they get from their instructor allows them to find what works for them, practice it, and adjust methods when necessary.

What benefits does Columbus tutoring for students who struggle with executive function offer?

Your student and their instructor can build a trusting bond, which can help your child be more open about their struggles and what they need. Their professional instructor is committed to helping them surmount the obstacles that poor executive function places in their way. With the undivided attention of an expert academic mentor, they can feel comfortable and free to risk trying tasks that might give them pause in a classroom setting, such as reading out loud.

Varsity Tutors makes private lessons as convenient as possible. We will connect you with an instructor who can meet when it best fits your family's schedule. Because lessons are online, your student can meet their tutor from your home, or if they prefer, a quiet location like the Columbus Metropolitan Library.

Columbus tutors for students who struggle with executive function and your student will meet on our Live Learning Platform and use features like the live chat, virtual whiteboard, shared document editor, and integrated problems to conduct their sessions. As a bonus, all online lessons are recorded digitally so you can access them to review your student's lessons and learn ways you can help them when the session is over. You can learn how to implement routines to help your student stay organized. Their smartphone can be a powerful tool in keeping track of assignments and organizing their study time outside of their tutoring sessions.

Session summaries by Executive Functioning tutors

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by David in Columbus, OH
The student and I worked on an assignment for her consumer behavior class in which she had to analyzed the MAO of a customer in relation to a service purchase and then link that to research done in the field. We created a perceptual map of the inputs and outcomes of the decision, as well as outlined the written analysis of the work.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Hongyuan (Emily) in Columbus, OH
We summarized Chapter 10 concepts, went over the class presentation, and did practice questions for marginal revenue and marginal cost, situations for equilibrium, profit change, and maximizing profit. Next session, we will review new chapters the student will be learning.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Donald in Columbus, OH
The student and I started today's session by discussing monopolies. We came up with real life examples and graphed what monopolies would look like. After that we discussed monopolistic competition, oligopolies and perfect competition. We then broke down different types of monopolies (natural, gov't, etc.) With about twenty minutes remaining we reviewed past material in preparation for her upcoming exam (price floors, ceilings, etc.). The student is making great progress and feels confident heading into her next exam. I will see her after her exam on Monday and look forward to hearing how the test went.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Aaron in Columbus, OH
I discussed both positive and negative externalities with the student, as well as the effect of tariffs and imports/exports. He is very strong in micro, but just seems to do well with some extra practice. I feel he will do very well in the class.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Aleksandr in Columbus, OH
We discussed what the student wanted out of tutoring and what he wanted to gain from it. We started by talking about economics a little bit and looked at some problem sets that he needed to do for class. We were able to solve the questions and build some intuition on the subject. He generally understands the concepts, but needs someone to talk things through with.
