executive function tutoring

The term "executive function" (EF) pertains to the part of the brain that acts as a manager to help orchestrate what the brain is to do, when it does it and how it works collaboratively. It is responsible for planning, organization, time management and the self-regulation of attention, emotion and behaviour. Many students struggle in school because of difficulties with EF. They tend to lose things, struggle to complete work and hand it in, and often have difficulties with written output.
