Welcome!

Effective Schooling & Beyond emerged from a passion to support students with unique learning styles. Executive functions act as the brain's command center, managing tasks like planning, organizing, time management, and emotional regulation. Difficulties with these skills can pose challenges in academic and home settings alike. My coaching approach is a partnership that highlights each student's strengths while teaching vital executive skills, empowering them to realize their full potential.

What is Executive Function?

Executive Function describes a family of cognitive skills that we use to manage our daily lives. EFs allow us to regulate ourselves in the present to experience the benefits in the future. When mastered, EFs help us to set and meet goals, prioritize tasks, control inhibition, and think flexibly.

What is Executive Function Coaching?

Executive function coaching is personalized support to improve skills like planning, organizing, self-regulation, and problem-solving. Coaches work one-on-one with clients, often students, helping them set goals, develop strategies, and provide ongoing accountability and encouragement. The ultimate goal of executive function coaching is to empower individuals to manage tasks and achieve their goals effectively.

Testimonials

I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing individuals.

    Erin is a wonderful EF Coach.

    Erin is a wonderful EF Coach and provided excellent support and care for our son. She not only addressed his challenges with EF but she made important connections to his life as a student athlete. Erin reviewed his academic accommodations and took the time to speak with our son's guidance counselor. She left no stone unturned as she developed a personalized system and structures that would most benefit our son. The resources she provided were helpful and we have seen positive strides in his EF skill development. Erin also does an excellent job with parents. She provided great support for us so we could empower and support our son at home.

    Erin really makes time to get to know your child.

    Our son has been working with Erin for about 6 months. We couldn't be happier with his progress. He is like a different kid. He prepares his own backpack for school every day, keeps track of his own assignments, and we synchronize calendars together for his weekly school reset.

     

    The thing I love the most about the way Erin works is the feeling of partnership. She really makes time to get to know your child, figure out how their brain works, and then they collaborate to put systems in place. Since our child is involved with creating the plan, he is 100% engaged in putting the strategies into practice. This has been a life changing experience for all of us. The stress of getting ready for school is gone.

    Erin has done an incredible job of empowering our son!

    Erin has been a wonderful leader for our son these past two years. Erin has done an incredible job of empowering our son and teaching him ways to improve his executive functioning skills and how to advocate for himself. He has shown great growth becoming more independent when it comes to schoolwork but also around the house with chores and various responsibilities. Erin's unconditional positive regard and genuine care for our son made him comfortable and allowed him to share and discuss his difficulties in the classroom. Erin was then able to coach him through a variety of strategies to use when he was feeling overwhelmed. Despite switching teachers and schools these past two years we have seen great growth in our son and so much of that is a reflection of Erin's coaching and support.

    From C’s to A’s!

    A year ago she wasn’t going to apply to college and was getting C's in classes. Now she’s been accepted to 7 colleges and has all A's in her classes!

This is just placeholder text. Don’t be alarmed, this is just here to fill up space since your finalized copy isn’t ready yet. Once we have your content finalized, we’ll replace this placeholder text with your real content.

Sometimes it’s nice to put in text just to get an idea of how text will fill in a space on your website.

Traditionally our industry has used Lorem Ipsum, which is placeholder text written in Latin. Unfortunately, not everyone is familiar with Lorem Ipsum and that can lead to confusion. I can’t tell you how many times clients have asked me why their website is in another language!

There are other placeholder text alternatives like Hipster Ipsum, Zombie Ipsum, Bacon Ipsum, and many more. While often hilarious, these placeholder passages can also lead to much of the same confusion.

Notice, too, that the image on the left conforms to the amount of text in this space. That’s pretty nice.
