What we do…
At The Organizing Tutor, we work one-on-one with students to help them reach an efficient level of organization in their space, papers, and time in order for them to achieve their full potential.
Our process starts with a formal holistic Student and Parent Assessment which includes:
- personal habits – eating, sleeping, energy drink, exercise, chores
- formal diagnoses, medications and side effects
- executive function
- daily schedule
- school schedule
- study habits
- learning style
- thinking style
Both students and parents take the assessments which allows us to identify areas of synergy as well as areas where there are differences. Upon completion of the assessment we meet with the family to discuss challenges and goals and observe first hand the state of the students’ space, backpack, paper management and time management systems. The observations are then combined with the preliminary assessment results in order to create a unique Student Organizing Assessment & Recommendations Report.
Because this assessment is so comprehensive, we are able to develop the right strategy immediately, thus helping our students realize positive results right away. This is vitally important since quite often the time frame to see a dramatic difference (which is usually measured in better grades) is small.
