Executive function students can be overwhelmed with multi-step directions. Be specific with directions and in as few words as possible.
PARENTS AGREE: Y3K TUTOR IN YOUR HOME CHANGES LIVES
The Y3K Tutor In Your Home owner has worked with my high school student for the past two years, helping with executive function, study skills, organization, time management, and homework coaching. I am so grateful for his ability to act as coach, cheerleader and drill sergeant, often all at once. He enters our home with great energy no matter how late it is or how many students he may already have seen, and is instantly asking my student about last week’s test or homework assignment. He remembers the details of my student’s assignments – often better than the student does! The tutor presses gently but persistently until the results or outcomes are revealed. He has helped our student understand the importance of taking homework seriously and keeping up with it. He has contributed greatly to our student’s ability to track the volume of work and plan ahead for the coming week. This tutor is able to hold our student accountable and encourage the best effort in a way we, the parents, cannot do without a huge fight. We’re really grateful for his work and highly recommend him without reservations.

Make “To Do” lists. Students with executive function can use these lists to stay on task by focusing on what they have remaining to do and what has already been completed.
Maintaining schedules usually helps students with executive functioning issues. These include separate daily schedules, weekly schedules and monthly schedules.
Organize homework supplies and have them in an easy to access location. A shelf, box or cabinet works well.
If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
Jerry is a fantastic tutor and a real help to our daughter in all of her subjects and with helping her stay organized. I would highly recommend using Jerry if your student needs help with tutoring or organizational skills around studying. Jerry is always upbeat and has excellent strategies to help your child be successful. A real gem of a find.

We prepare your child for success in the classroom and life in the future.
The owner has been tutoring my kids – now in 10th grade – since they were in elementary school. The specific needs have varied over the years and Jerry has always been able to adapt his teaching and style to provide what was needed. He is able to provide support across all the academic subjects – but just as critically – he has helped with organizational skills and planning. And he has remained even and cool-headed in the face of difficult teenagers, resistant to getting help. In the face of reactions that would fell the most intact ego, Jerry has maintained his sense of humor. I can’t recommend Y3K Tutor In Your Home highly enough.

The Y3K Tutor In Your Home owner provides weekly tutoring for my middle-schooler who is bright but struggles with social pragmatics and rigidity, making public school a difficult learning environment. His creative and non-threatening approach is very effective in helping my son think critically about his assignments and his teachers’ expectations. In addition to developing his writing and language skills, he is also able to feed his insatiable appetite for complex math by expanding on the basic concepts covered in the school curriculum. He is an excellent academic tutor and is also very organized and dependable. I highly recommend him for a variety of learners and learning needs.
