How can a tutor assist you in conquering Executive Functioning?

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 Salt Lake City, UT 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, ourSalt Lake City 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 Salt Lake City, UT
The student and I reviewed two sample question sets involving multiple choice questions focused on the loanable funds market, the supply (related to savings) and demand (related to investment) of funds, factors that influence and shift supply and demand of loanable funds, the "types" of economic resources (e.g. physical, human, and natural), technological innovation concentration, and the application of the rule of 70. I also forwarded him a resource that provided detailed factors and examples influencing the supply and demand of loanable funds.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Taylor in Salt Lake City, UT
We finished his review for his Thursday's test. The student worked through his chapter 7 accounting homework over petty cash funds. He was not struggling as much as he needed the push to get the work done. He wants to do well on test. I left him with two elasticity problems. He made a 98 on his accounting homework. He finished the homework and also worked through his review.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Lun in Salt Lake City, UT
I covered international trade and the indifference curves. The student was comfortable with the material that was reviewed. I used a lot of graphs to show her the concepts and some practice exams to help her understand them. The student said she feels more comfortable with my teaching.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Jonathan in Salt Lake City, UT
The student and I worked today on his final review sheet. We started with the very basics of microeconomic theory: marginal cost versus marginal benefit. From there we easily transitioned into many other topics. I am not going to list them in detail as we literally went down the review sheet one by one, covering fully topics 1, 2, and 3. This covered the short and long-run decision making practices of a firm in a market of perfect competition as well as some more basic underlying principles. We stopped there for the day, and are going to pick up tomorrow with imperfect competition and monopolies. He was very honest about not remembering some of the earlier parts of the class, which makes it all the more important that we went over them today. I look forward to meeting with him tomorrow night to continue with his preparation for his final.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Catherine in Salt Lake City, UT
We went over a practice midterm test. The student's midterm is coming up Saturday, so we went through all the practice questions on one of the set of sample questions her professor gave. She seems to be getting the hang of most of the concepts. We spent most time on opportunity cost and production possibilities frontiers, which she wasn't too familiar with. She's going to do some more practice problems and we'll discuss any issues she had when we meet Friday, the day before her midterm.

Executive Functioning Tutoring review by Zachary in Salt Lake City, UT
We reviewed the student's strategy connect homework that was over the course of four chapters. He did a great job on the homework and applying these concepts to real-world applications. He is continuing to improve with each session. He currently has a 90% in this class. We will need to focus a little more on the financial planning class as he currently has a 73% in. As time goes on, we will be able to bump that grade.
