Summer Academic Support

Summer CollegeCore Coaching helps upperclassman in high school or a college build a strong core of personal skills and routines for success in September. Whether you are taking summer school or not, there are many ways to cultivate new habits and mindsets for getting work done, done well and on time. These are the skills and routines of strong leaders, so learn how to be the leader of YOU. CollegeCore Coaching is customized to your goals which may include:

  • Distraction control The ability to shift at will from distractions to a high state of focus and concentration and sustain that focus for a reasonable about of time. This includes control of electronics.
  • Making and adhering to a schedule; accounting for how you spend your time
  • Strengthening attention and concentration skills
  • Good quality sleep (a normalized sleep pattern) and regular exercise timed right for optimizing attention and getting work done.
  • The ability to advocate for oneself. Asking for help when needed, seeking alternative resources, being persistent, self confident and how to connect with “difficult” teachers. This is Introvert-friendly training!
  • Enhancing critical thinking  and verbal expression
  • Emotional self-regulation to facilitate problem-solving and decision-making.
  • Reinforcing a sturdy set of WHYs (powerful reasons) to fuel

When these core pieces are in place, one is more enabled to utilize top-down tools for time management, study, working memory, planning and executing tasks. Without a strong core, top down tools and strategies won’t stick. It takes more than courage to take on challenges – it takes core!

CollegeCore Coaching is a one-on-one, personalized program for high school juniors and seniors on a college track and for college students returning to school in the fall. Sessions are in person or via Skype. For more information, please call me, Rebecca Shafir, speech pathologist  and executive function coach at the Hallowell Center (978) 287-0810 x117 or (978) 255-1817.
