Teens

The teenage years are the transition period between childhood and adulthood and is filled with trial and error. Not only is the teen-aged student focused on their schoolwork, but they are also juggling additional responsibilities such as extracurricular activities, work, family responsibilities, future planning, and an increase in freedom. This can be scary and overwhelming for many, and the need for some additional support is common. Our one-on-one sessions help teen-aged students with the following: 

  • Social Skills 

  • Coping with Anxiety

  • Dealing with Depression 

  • Managing Anger & Emotional Outbursts

  • Building Self-Esteem 

 

  • Homework & Study Skills 

  • Future Planning (college & work readiness) 

  • Reading Comprehension Improvement

  • Organization 

  • Time Management

One-on-One Sessions 

One-on-one sessions are 60-minutes long, which includes 45-minutes of instruction and learning activities and concludes with a 15-minute wrap-up with the student and parent. The wrap-up is used to share progress, explain new techniques, and the areas of focus for the upcoming week. Students will be expected to complete tasks and activities in between sessions to help them master new skills.
