For Students with ADD/ADHD/Executive Function Deficits 

Students with ADD/ADHD or executive function deficits often struggle with academic tasks. They may have difficulty completing assignments – submitting them, studying for tests, and completing projects on time.

In addition, students with ADD/ADHD often lose motivation and experience a loss of self-esteem. This can impact their grades and general attitude toward school.

This can be stressful for both student and parent.

Our teachers have expertise working with students with ADD/ADHD and executive function deficits. We will provide your child with 1-on-1 personalized, strategic, and supportive tutoring to help them reach their full potential.

Focusing on executive function skills, we teach students how to create a goal-driven schedule, manage their time, prioritize tasks, and self-advocate. We also help them with problem-solving and decision-making skills, as well as deep reading strategies, how to study and prepare for tests, and problem-solving tools.

We use a variety of teaching methods to help students with ADD/ADHD learn effectively. We break down tasks into smaller steps, provide visual aids, and use highly interactive activities. We also teach students strategies for staying focused and organized.

Our tutors create a patient and supportive learning environment where your child will feel supported and encouraged. Using positive reinforcement, we will help your child stay on track while teaching them to become an independent learner.

My high school junior has made huge progress with executive function skills working one-on-one with her tutor. We thought we might sign up for a month or two to learn a good study system, but my daughter requested to continue, saying these sessions are the biggest factor in her success with her course load this year. She is learning to manage her time and she is learning quite a bit about managing her triggers for procrastination. We know the support she is receiving now will help her going forward through high school and college. We are so glad to have signed up for one-on-one executive function tutoring!”
