Making the grade takes more than just smarts

Nailing the details with executive function
6 September 2019

In primary school and middle school, everything I learned seemed to just… click. The teacher would teach a lesson in class, and after doing my homework to review the lesson, I’d be set to go. I would do no extra studying, no extra reviewing -- I would do the bare minimum assignments needed to maintain my grades, and be ready for the exam or test when the time came. Surprisingly, I did fairly well.

 

When I got to high school, however, things took a turn. While seemingly able to retain the material, I struggled with organizational skills. I often couldn’t remember when my tests and/or projects were due. And what resulted from years of simply remembering what was taught in class came a lack of studying skills as well.

 

I felt defeated. With added workload and extracurricular activities, I didn’t know where to start in even creating a study plan, especially considering that I had never established one in the past. 

 

It’s never too late, though. If you find that your student is struggling with classes, organization and/or just needing help preparing a study routine, Marengo is here to help. We offer coaching dedicated to preparing students for tests, organizing their schedules, and even overcoming the challenges related to ADHD.
