    These sessions are designed to empower students with effective planning and prioritizing strategies, this interactive session equips them with the essential skills of calendaring, planning, prioritizing, and initiating assignments independently. Through a combination of brief, targeted discussions and periodic session check-ins, students learn how to manage their time and work independently on homework. Throughout the sessions, students will receive encouragement and personalized support as they begin creating strong study habits. Whether it's completing homework, working on a project, or studying for a test, having one study session at the beginning of the week will help your student learn how to plan and use their study time. Join us on this exciting journey towards academic success!
