Strong Study Skills = Academic Success
It's been proven that effective study skills, routines, and habits lead to a more successful academic experience. In this world of remote learning, these foundational study skills are especially important! With Skills+, in just two weeks, middle and high school students can take their skills to the next level. Executive function challenges are common among students, which adds additional challenges to a classroom or online setting. Our daily, personalized, one-hour sessions will provide effective tools to empower students to refine their study and executive function skills, explore and adopt new strategies, develop strong study habits, and boost academic achievement.
Our Skills+ program is designed specifically for students enrolled in public or private middle and high schools who need to develop strategies and skills to apply across all subjects for an academic advantage next year and beyond.
The program is designed for students who have NOT been diagnosed with a language-based learning disability, but seek help with executive function skills and strategies to improve and strengthen their academic experience.
