Beyond BookSmart is an Executive Function coaching company whose mission is to help people successfully meet today's challenges in school and beyond, using tools that will benefit them long after they have stopped working with us. We use the work our clients currently face to teach them how to manage their time and attention, plan and prioritize, and become more organized, all so they gain confidence and become willing to take on even greater challenges. Coaching is not focused on content tutoring (other than reading and writing, which always seem to come up). Rather, the work we do focuses on Executive Function skills development - organization, time management, planning, and good "student habits." School skills emphasized are homework management, test prep, reading efficiently, essay writing and project management. Our coaching is done one-to-one, in students' homes, as well as online. We provide in-person coaching in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Southern New Hampshire, Illinois, South Florida, New Jersey, South Carolina, New York City, Philadelphia and online coaching throughout the United States and in three additional continents.
