During the overwhelming period of preparing and submitting college applications, executive function coaching provided a grounding force that gave the application chaos a well defined structure. My executive function coach helped me organize all my deadlines and tasks so I developed a steady schedule. My coach was also invaluable in the interview process, providing me with tips about every aspect of the interview process. My concerns about the application process were heard by my coach and taken into account so I gained much needed peace of mind. The organization and communication skills I learned from my executive function coach will undoubtedly aid me in my life beyond high school.

With the help of executive function coaching, I was able to stay on top of my college applications and be prepared for any setbacks that may come my way. Despite being admitted to my top choice of colleges, I stayed positive throughout the entire process because of how ahead I was, and the sheer level of organization that the coaching provided. Although it may seem small, the short email summaries of our meetings were a constant reminder to stay focused and keep working even though an Early Decision or Early Action might come through and end the college application process sooner.

Embark on a Journey to Success: Our Executive Function Coaching Process
Welcome to a transformative journey where each step is a leap towards unlocking your student’s full potential. Our Executive Function Coaching is not just a process; it’s a personalized adventure, crafted to meet the unique needs and aspirations of your student. Let’s dive into our five-step journey:
The Starting Point: Establishing the Objective
- Imagine stepping into a world of possibilities with a complimentary 15-minute consultation. This is where our journey begins. In this initial heart-to-heart, we delve into understanding your student’s world – their challenges, dreams, and what success means to your family.
The Exploration: Understanding Through Assessment
Next, we embark on an exploration with our SMARTS assessment. Think of it as a treasure map, revealing the hidden gems of your student’s strengths and the challenges waiting to be conquered.
Our conversations during this phase are like guiding stars – insightful, open-ended, and reflective, helping us chart a course that’s uniquely theirs.
The Revelation: Providing Feedback
With the map and stars aligned, we now enter the realm of feedback. This isn’t just about pointing out what’s there; it’s about illuminating the path forward. We reflect back on the journey so far – the peaks scaled and the valleys crossed. This step is about nurturing student self-discovery and growth.
The Strategy: Identifying Goals
As our path becomes clearer, we focus on setting goals. These are not just markers on a map; they’re signposts to your student’s aspirations. We help them choose goals that are challenging yet attainable – a perfect blend of ambition and realism.
The Continuous Journey: Following Up with Support
The journey doesn’t end with setting goals. Regular meetings with our expert coaches ensure that the path remains clear and progress is continuously charted. After each session, reflections are shared, serving as checkpoints along the way.
Periodically, we revisit our initial map – the SMARTS assessment – to see how far we’ve come. Goals are realigned, ensuring that the journey remains dynamic and responsive to your student’s growing abilities and changing landscapes.
This is not just a coaching process; it’s a narrative of growth, discovery, and empowerment. Each student’s story is unique, and we tailor our journey to reflect that individuality. So, let’s start this adventure together and guide your student towards a future brimming with potential and success. Book your complimentary 15-complimentary consultation.
