Sticky New Year's Resolutions

January 1, 2018

 

 

 

Today's tip:

 

Let's resolve to make our New Year's Resolutions stick! When setting goals (resolutions!) keep them as specific, attainable and time-bound as possible. When our goals are lofty and ambiguous, they become overwhelming and inaccessible. By keeping goals focused, your child will have a much greater chance of following through and achieving them. And when students achieve goals, they feel a sense of accomplishment which strengthens self-confidence and deepens intrinsic motivation.

 

(Side note: Creating New Year's resolutions provides an excellent (and less-obvious-to-your-child) opportunity to map out a few goals for the second half of the school year.)

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.
