Academic Coaching features a 1:1 student-to-teacher ratio, receiving direct instruction on identified executive function skills; brain-based skills that individuals need to effectively solve problems and execute tasks. Skills include: prioritization, sustained attention, organization, task initiation, response inhibition, flexibility, metacognition, and more. Academic Coaching is offered as a two, three, or five-day per week program, depending on the student’s need or request. It is ideal for students who have chronically underachieved as learners, with or without diagnosed learning differences. The program is not content-specific tutoring. It is explicit 1:1 instruction on skills necessary for lifelong success. These newly acquired and developing skills are applied in the current academic tasks asked of the student.
