Enrich Your Children’s Academic Experience

In today’s competitive academic environment, it’s important to be involved in your child’s education. Managing Your Mind can help in this effort. Parents can become better educational advocates for their children.

Using proven strategies developed after years of behavioral research, our programs help you learn the best ways to assist children with homework, prepare for tests and test-taking, get ready for college and entrance exams, and much more. You’ll also learn how to get the most out of parent-teacher conferences, better cope with adolescence, and provide more positive discipline.

Ideal for parents with middle-school through college-age children, Managing Your Mind helps you better understand your child’s unique learning style, and structure support accordingly. The result is a more joyful and positive home environment for your family, and a more successful academic experience for your child.

Become a better educational advocate for your child. E-mail or call Geri about coaching or seminars. Sometimes only a few sessions can help your child to get back on track.

Success Stories

Eleventh Grader Improves ACT Scores

From a student's mom: Brad got his scores today, and he scored three points higher than last time! He improved on everything, but especially on the reading comprehension section, which was where he needed to do better. He thinks that the strategies you gave him were helpful for the test, and will help him with all the reading he will be doing in the future. We're excited for him, as the "31" will certainly give him more choices re: where he will go to school. :) Thank you for being so kind, and for helping Brad! I will recommend you to other parents who are looking for similar help for their kids.

Tenth Grader Improves Grades

Bob’s grades plummets because he fails to hand in assignments. Through coaching with Geri, Bob learns to use the school’s homework hotline, schedule his time, and work for short periods of time. Helpful hints to his mother about reinforcing independent behavior (and reducing nagging) lead to a more positive, home learning environment. Better homework completion results in better grades in his english, math and science courses.
