tip of the week

Start small, start now

January 8, 2018



Today's tip:


Getting started is easier said than done for many students. Sometimes a solution is as simple as shifting one's mindset. Best-selling author and prolific blogger Seth Godin offers this angle:


Start small, start now

This is much better than "start big, start later."

One advantage is you don't have to start perfect.

You can merely start.


When your child is stuck, ask her: "What can you do?" It's simply about taking the first step, however small. She'll soon learn that one small step eventually becomes a giant leap.

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.
