What is Executive Functioning?

Executive functioning is a set of cognitive processes and mental skills that help us function throughout the day. These functions include everything from flexible thinking to sharp memory and other basic self-management skills. People struggling with executive function difficulties exhibit a variety of issues that have to do with areas such as decision making, staying focused, being organized, planning ahead, handling emotions, and more. Each child’s executive function development differs, however, some children never fully develop them and end up with specific weaknesses, which often lead to struggles when it comes to schoolwork and managing tasks. Fortunately, when paired with a skillful and patient teacher, an executive functioning coaching program can help any student successfully overcome difficulties.

How Teachers Can Improve Their Performance in the Classroom

What are the benefits of Executive Functioning Coaching?

Executive functioning tutoring can prove to be extremely beneficial for students, as well as reassuring for parents that their children are in professional and patient hands. Teaching executive functioning skills goes beyond traditional education programs: our personalized tutoring sessions allow us to form authentic connections with our students and help them progress in areas they haven’t mastered yet. Da Vinci’s specialized coaching sessions aid children who struggle with executive functioning skills to better their flexible thinking capabilities, organizational and planning abilities, time- and task-management skills, as well as learning how to control their impulses and emotions. The best place to practice executive functioning skills is in a safe environment, with teachers who understand the struggles kids with underdeveloped executive functioning are going through.

1. Learn in a safe environment

The most important factor for children battling executive function issues is to feel safe. School can often be overwhelming, but private tutoring can ease the learning process.

2. Completing tasks

We help children properly manage their tasks, whether academic or not, by using advanced techniques within our personalized sessions.

3. Flexible thinking

We try to help our students think outside the box, and strive to make them understand how problem-solving thinking can improve their life.

4. Learn how to focus

Executive functioning tutoring sessions ensure that students have someone who is 100% dedicated to their progress, and helps them learn how to stay focused during tasks.


It’s easy to get distracted and not properly manage our time, but children with executive functioning disorders don’t realize how time management works, so we are here to help.

6. Impulse control and regulating emotions

Here at Da Vinci, we help children overcome difficulties by teaching them mindful ways to tackle inconveniences, such as intrusive thoughts and impulsive behavior.
