Executive Functioning

Person writing in planner next to laptopABOUT EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONING

Executive Function support teaches students how to organize, plan, prioritize, manage time, self-assess, study efficiently, and think in a more flexible manner.

Our tutors help students build the necessary skills to keep track of assignments and deadlines, break down assignments, plan ahead for upcoming work, and maintain focus. Another critical component of Executive Functioning support is emotional regulation. Dynamic Tutoring Solutions specializes in supporting students with ADHD, anxiety, and other emotional regulatory challenges.

Executive Function issues often go unnoticed, sometimes even until students are in middle or high school.
