Executive function coaching is what supercharges our approach. As a developmental disorder often linked to Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, executive functions are skills and neural networks that guide intelligent behavior and thinking. As students grow older, their school work grows harder. The demands on executive function also grow. This is what most tutors miss. We blend learning and executive function skills development in creative and unique ways.
We have two approaches to working with EF issues.
The first relates to brain functions impacting memory, problem-solving, and self-control—often seen in kids with ADHD. Here RiT tutors work to help organize the student's environment and engineer new strong habits for success. We may recommend organizational tools, exercise protocols, and brain-friendly study habits.
The second is not about an underlying neurodivergence at all. It's more about a student simply never needing a skill or organizational method before now. New challenge, new skill. We believe in training, family partnerships, and custom strategies tailored to each student's unique needs. Whether it's time management, new focus strategies for longer studying, or tackling complex assignments, we've got it covered.
