This summer we're sharing a collection of Tips that we feel are deserving of a second look. Our hope is that you'll find a few useful gems you may have missed along the way that you can bookmark for the fall. Enjoy!
As adults, we’ve come to recognize that there is more than one way to get something done. What works for one may not work for another. Likewise, what works for many may not work for a handful. For students who struggle with executive function, it’s important to help identify the strategies that work best for each student. When a student is able to figure out the approach that works best for her and finds success, it boosts her confidence and increases her motivation to succeed.

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.
