Each child has his or her own organizing technique. Problems begin when we try to impose our own methods on our children. Visual Organizers need to be able to see all their items and don't like an overloaded workspace. Spatial Organizers need all their items within reach and want an orderly workspace. And Chronological Organizers think chronologically relying on detail, repetition, and numerical order. There are children who learn by observing, listening, or doing. Together, your child and I can determine their personal learning and organizing style and set up a system that works best for them.
"Not only did our son enjoy his time with Lauri discussing all the fun things of a typical middle schooler, he also tremendously improved his grades."
Beginning with grade school, I can help your child instill solid organization tools that will serve them well throughout their school career.
In high school, I will concentrate on note-taking, helping to keep binders organized and learning how to establish good study habits.
For matriculating seniors, getting ready for college is a huge emotional transition. I will work with your child on continuing to carry out those habits we created and established early on. We can also work together towards organizing a dorm room that encourages and nurtures his or her personal style and organizing technique.
