It’s not the plan that is important, it’s the planning.
Good luck is the result of good planning.
Take time to relax especially when you don’t have time for it.
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.
A timer or clock can help students that lose track of time to pace their work and to take breaks at reasonable intervals. Some students will work for 10 minutes and lose track of time thinking they have worked much longer, and expect a break. Also some students will plan on a short break and lose track of time. A 5-minute break becomes a 30-minute break! This is the same psychology used by casinos to get people to gamble. Casinos hope the gamblers will lose track of time by not having any clocks on the walls. Use the timer to plan out how long they should work before taking a break, how long their break will be, and how long until the next break. Keep this process going until all homework is completed.
It’s not the amount of time you devote, but what you devote to the time that counts.
We prepare your child for success in the classroom and life in the future.
When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice.
