Why Star Tutoring Works for Students with ADHD
What are Star Sessions?
Our Star Sessions tutors have two roles: to instruct academics and to coach students on their academic lives. During Star Sessions, tutors work with students by implementing different processes, tools, and techniques to build organizational, planning, executive functioning AND academic skills.
How do Star Sessions work?
Star Sessions focus on four main components:
Organization: For organization, tutors assist students with getting their materials in order. We will take the time to organize a chaotic backpack littered with papers into something manageable and structured. We will look at each binder and check to make sure the pockets are not stuffed and that there are clear sections for different kinds of papers.
Planning: Once the student is organized, it is time to focus on planning. Tutors and students collaborate to create a detailed list of assignments that must be completed. No planner? No problem! We also provide Student Planning Sheets- which are graphic organizers to help you figure out what you need to complete, when it’s due, and when you plan to work on it.
Academics: The remainder of the session will focus on academics. We help students with a wide range of subjects. Whether they need help with AP courses, upper-level math or science, and every other course - we can help!
Session Notes: After the session is complete, tutors work on completing the session notes. In session notes, tutors are asked to write about what was worked on during the session, including information such as upcoming assignments, progress made from the previous session, topics on which a client may have struggled, and any other relevant information. Once session notes are completed, they are emailed to the parent/guardian.
How are Star Sessions Structured to Help My ADHD Student?
Star Sessions takes a holistic approach to tutoring. We have a consultation session with the parents to understand their goals and expectations for their child. We then format each session to best accommodate your child’s needs. Whether your child is disorganized, inattentive, missing work, or procrastinating, we structure our sessions and coach our tutors to lead your child to success!
Why Star Sessions?
Star Sessions are more than academic tutoring! Star Sessions are structured to help students build life skills, independence, self-management, and so much more!
