What is Executive Function Coaching?

Executive functioning skills are usually developed in early childhood to teen years. But they keep developing into the mid-20s. When kids are younger, some may lag behind peers for a while. As they get older, though, they may have fewer challenges as teens and young adults. 

 

 

Executive function is responsible for many skills, including: 

 

  • Paying attention
  • Organizing, planning, and prioritizing
  • Starting and finishing the assigned tasks
  • Understanding different points of view
  • Regulating emotions
  • Self-monitoring (keeping track of what you’re doing)

 

 

Executive Function skills are what we can call self-management abilities that help people achieve goals. In order to effectively and timely meet the challenges of ever-increasing school, work, and life demands, people must be able to manage their emotions and attention, organize and plan their work and reflect upon, and time and revise their tactics as circumstances change. 

 

The goal for executive function coaching is to teach students the skills and apply them well beyond the current challenges they face. They focus on helping students have more effective skills. Coaches will use real-life situations from school or at work as vehicles to build these Executive Function skills.

Who Benefits From Coaching?

Themba Tutors works with many students and adults who are struggling to manage their demands, due to ADHD, diagnosed Executive Function deficits, or other learning differences. We also coach a lot of individuals who do not have formal diagnoses. These students and adults are often frustrated and discouraged, especially when their challenges are perceived as laziness. 

 

Most of the clients we work with are very bright but haven’t been taught the tools and strategies required to achieve success. Our coaches provide the encouragement, strategies, and insight they need to become more effective and more confident in work, life, and school.

 

 

Our coaches and tutors can help overcome these challenges:

 

  • Have trouble starting and/or completing tasks
  • Have difficulty prioritizing tasks
  • Forget what they just heard or read
  • Have trouble following directions or a sequence of steps given to them
  • Panic when rules or routines change
  • Have trouble changing and shifting focus from one task to another
  • Get overly emotional and fixate on things
  • Have trouble organizing their thoughts into words and ideas
  • Have trouble keeping track of their belongings
  • Have trouble managing their time

 

Clients themselves are not the only ones getting the benefits of coaching. Partners and parents often tell us that household friction is reduced with coaching in place. Teachers also report positive shifts in students who receive our coaching service.

More about our Coaching and Tutoring?

 

Our learning specialists, academic tutors, and writing coaches provide 1:1, individualized tutoring for children, adolescents, college students and adults of all ages, grade levels, and personalities.  Our goal is to help adults and students feel more confident and become more effective learners and workers overall. We aim to maximize our students learning potential from a collaborative approach working with parents, teachers, and other professionals. 

 

  • Themba Tutors specialize in tutoring students who are struggling with learning differences – focusing, organizing, studying, test-taking reading, writing, math, languages, and other subject areas.  Our coaches and tutors are experts in ADHD/ADD, executive functioning, language processing, reading (e.g. dyslexia), writing, (e.g. dysgraphia), and math disorders (e.g. dyscalculia), autism spectrum disorders, non-verbal learning disorder, and other learning differences.  

 

  • Our Learning Specialists are experienced in working with homeschoolers and offer online tutoring options. 

 

  • We also tutor college and high school students, and adults without learning difficulties but in need of science, math, writing, and foreign language support. 

 

  • Our Academic Tutors support Algebra I/II, Geometry. Trigonometry, Calculus, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Programming, and many foreign languages. Our Writing Coaches,  tutors, and support writing within English Language Arts and across the high school and college curriculum. 

 

  • Each of Themba’s expert tutors and coaches has an advanced degree in working with learning differences or an academic field of expertise. 

 

  • All tutors have years of experience in teaching and tutoring in private and public schools or universities. We customize curricula for every student, starting with careful assessments, then applying developmentally appropriate methods and strategies. The student’s current academic knowledge and material is an important focus, but strengthening core skills is crucial because that will last a lifetime. 

 

  • We coach students to learn how to organize, plan, prioritize, focus, avoid distractions, and keep track of materials and tasks. Goals include information retention and improving memory, spending more focused time on tasks and completing them, decreasing procrastination, organizing schoolwork, managing time more effectively, and learning to think carefully before acting.  Themba Tutor Specialists will model and support the application of skills in the appropriate context. Our tutors and coaches will put the student in the driver’s seat to best generalize these skills without holding the steering wheel

We also offer a hybrid model for those students who need help with content and improving their underlying study skills.
