tip of the week


April 24, 2017


Today's tip:


Parents quickly learn with toddlers and gradeschoolers that children want adults to set boundaries and hold them to expectations. When you set boundaries and expectations, you help create order. And when things are in order and expectations are understood, students are more likely to succeed. This is always trickier with tweens and teens and sometimes the accountability piece, especially around school work, needs to come from someone outside the home. So whether it’s you or another adult, set a clear expectation. With the right support your child will rise to it.

The Engaging Minds Difference


Engaging Minds offers a unique approach to traditional tutoring: we teach students how to learn and provide them with academic skills and strategies they need to succeed over the long-term. In addition to providing support in writing, reading comprehension, and problem-solving, we focus on teaching the increasingly important executive function skills (organization, prioritization, initiation of tasks, time management, planning, goal-setting) and guide students to become independent and self-confident learners. With these fundamental skills in place, students are better able to effectively approach, manage and complete nightly homework assignments, and are better poised to achieve their full potential.
