Take advantage of extra help

October 23, 2017



Today's tip:


Most teachers are available during organized extra help blocks after school (and many make themselves available during the day if students ask!), yet students very rarely take advantage. There are many benefits for a student to meet with his teachers: it can help clarify confusing material, he can get study tips prior to an exam, he will gain self-confidence and strengthen self-advocacy skills, and he will earn the teacher’s confidence that he’s trying and that he cares. Even one after school session a week to start is a great first step. If you can help him over the first hurdle, over time he’ll learn how valuable that support can be and he will, at some point, advocate for it on his own.

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.
