Early October is a good time for a check-in

October 2, 2017


Today's tip:


Students often enter the new school year with the best of intentions. But by October, even the best-laid plans can begin to go awry. This is a good time to check-in with your child and make any necessary course adjustments. Check in on physical organization and make sure her binders and backpack are organized and tidy. Take a close look at her assignment book/planner to be sure she’s tracking and managing her homework effectively. And visit online resources to see how her grades are looking and if there are any assignments missing. A quick course correction now could make a world of difference as the year progresses.

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.
