Organizational Skills

Executive Functions are essential skills to manage daily life. These affect one’s ability to focus, follow directions, and handle emotions. Though these skills are critical to success, students are rarely, if ever, taught how to develop them. Most students never learn how to take effective notes, prepare for an important exam, or manage a busy homework schedule. Add an intense after-school roster of sports, activities, and social engagements, and it’s easy to see why many students feel overwhelmed.

By learning personalized strategies for planning, prioritizing, and organizing, students are able to improve their focus, impulse control, self-motivation, task initiation, and time management. These skills will carry them into college and adulthood.

We interweave these lessons into our Academic, Enrichment, and Test Prep instruction.

The results: Offered a scholarship at his first-choice university

Duncan* was having trouble staying organized while applying for colleges. His tutor created an easy-to-use spreadsheet and showed Duncan how to complete and monitor his college research in an organized manner. Once his top picks were chosen, they modified the spreadsheet and showed him how to keep track of requirements and deadlines for each university. Duncan’s tutor also assisted with the essays, helping him to brainstorm, plan, write, and revise memorable responses to the prompts. We’re proud to say he no longer needs our help to stay organized.

Here’s what Duncan’s parents had to say about WorldWise Tutoring:

“We originally sought the help of WorldWise Tutoring to help my older son improve his grade in science. Over the years, his tutor became his mentor and friend. I was relieved knowing that my son’s tutor was there to help him keep his grades up, prepare for the ACT and SAT, and complete college applications – which alleviated a lot of stress for me and his father. Our family can never thank WorldWise Tutoring enough for all it has done for us!” ~
