Is Your Student Struggling?

Deteriorating academic performance and difficulty managing stress are common signs of weak executive function skills.

Helping Students Succeed When They Need It Most

Giving them the tools, guidance and accountability to change their own trajectory and find a better path forward

Executive Function Skills Can Be Impacted By:

Coaching Helps Students Tackle Challenges

That Negatively Affect Academic Performance and Mental Health When Left Unaddressed

Emotional Regulation

ADHD and other EFS challenges can make emotional regulation difficult. When students face overwhelm, anxiety, or frustration, coaches will work with them to use strategies for managing and moving through them to stay on track.

Planning & Prioritizing

Instead of trying to do everything at once or nothing at all, students will learn to assess workloads and prioritize them. Coaches will guide them to break big tasks down, schedule them, and make a plan to stay accountable to.

Start & Complete Tasks

Coaches work with students to create weekly action plans for progress. Having a plan makes getting started easier. Students will have clear steps for completion and coaches can hold them accountable to ensure follow-through.

Time Management

It’s common for students to get overwhelmed and shut down when they start to get behind in school. Coaches will help students work on things like time blindness and proper time estimation techniques. Over time, students will develop better self-awareness around time management.

Earning Better Grades

By developing better habits and self-management strategies with their coaches, students improve their overall performance in school to help them earn better grades. They will also utilize specialized tools and measurements for monthly progress tracking to combat avoidance and late work.

Getting Organized

Coaches will help students develop better organizational habits as well as self-awareness to maintain organization on their own over time. They will hone their ability to organize information and physical spaces so they can stay on schedule and stick with action plans to get work done.

It's Common For Struggling Students To Resist Help From A Parent

Most students want to be independent

A coach can help them build that independence by strategically guiding and collaborating with them to manage and improve their executive function skills like: 

Organization

Planning & Prioritizing

Task Initiation

Task Completion

Focus & Attention

Thrivister was a great fit for my son! His coach did a wonderful job of setting up programs and challenges that have helped him with success after high school. I highly recommend this program for any young adult that needs a little extra support.

Thank you to Liz who worked with us to find a wonderful coach for our daughter. Her first year of college she was fortunate to work with Michelle Harvey who helped our daughter gain so much confidence as a student. We are grateful to Michelle for her kindness and expertise in working with young adults with ADHD. Our daughter is now in her sophomore year with the tools she needs to be a successful, independent and thriving college student.

My daughter has struggled with organization and task-initiation skills most of her life. She started working with her Thrivister coach and after only one semester is able to break larger assignments and studying into manageable chunks. She rarely forgets to submit her work on time and manages her study time more wisely. We are thankful for the difference Thrivister has made in her education and self-esteem.

We're so happy with our daughter's coach, Amy. She has helped our daughter to stay on track and to learn better study/organizational skills. With the help of Amy's guidance, and a lot of hard work on our daughter's part, she has started to see some real academic success! We never doubted our daughter's potential - it's thrilling to watch her start to understand how truly capable she really is.

My son has been using Thrivister for two semesters of college and has found his coach to be very helpful. His coach has taught him time management and organization. His grades have definitely improved with the bi-weekly check ins.

So my daughter is going to a very tough school.. Their pre-med ties with Harvard.. She got a scholarship that knocked about 30k off the sticker price.. She was struggling with her freshman year, passing, but struggling.. I spent a few weeks researching tutors/coaches and decided to give Thrivister a shot.. BAM! she's crushing it this year, and secured the 30k scholarship! We are keeping them on year round, except when she goes studies abroad.. Do your research or save yourself some time and just go with Thrivister! Tom Mabe Rocket Dr/Comedian

My son’s coach was Michelle. She was amazing. My son is in 10th now. By the end of first semester of 9th he barely passed all of his core classes and even some electives. He started with her end of November 2021 and that helped him pass the first semester. He continued working with her and finished second semester with all As and Bs. We continued program that entire second semester. Fast forward to beginning of this school year. He felt confident he was ready to work the system they created on his own…first 9wk report card had All As and Bs except one very high C. I cannot emphasize how huge this progress is for my son. His confidence in school now is at an all time high. He has learned to manage his ADHD without medication. This was some of the BEST money I’ve ever spent.
