“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”

June 12, 2017



Today's tip:


“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” - Antoine de Saint-Exupéry


Help your child develop goals that include the various action steps necessary to achieve them. For example, raising a grade in a particular class is a wonderful goal. Developing and holding oneself to small, interim steps along the way is actionable (I will hand in all of my homework; I will develop study plans a few days in advance of exams; I will see my teacher for extra help once each week) and will help keep the goal accessible. Achieving a goal requires taking action.

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.
