Academic Performance

When a student’s academic performance is not where it could be - students are not at their true learning potential, or they’re failing one or more subjects, they are showing their need for additional guidance, instruction, and support.

Ruth specializes in

  • Follow-through with homework

  • Organization/Prioritizing 

  • Procrastination

  • Learning potential

  • ADHD and executive functioning skills

  • Motivation 

  • Failing grades 

  • School anxiety 

  • School resistance

  • And more


Ruth's goals are for young people to love learning, to start actualizing their own true learning potential, and to embrace learning and growing as integral parts of their everyday lives. Ruth also uses her own Innovative Academic Tools Program,  a unique, specific, comprehensive, and barebones approach to aid in attacking these issues listed above.

Ruth uses her own Innovative Academic Tools Program, a distinctly concrete, specific, barebones, and comprehensive approach that covers the skill areas necessary for true academic success! This unique program is great for preteens, teens, and young adults when nothing else has worked.

Skill sets include:

  • Assignment Notebook - a novel approach that includes time management and planning, accountability, and more 

  • Follow-through with homework

  • Reading textbooks, to increase comprehension and recall, and to decrease study time for tests      

  • Study skills 

  • Daily/weekly planner

  • Parent training - includes daily and weekly structure, a check-in system for accountability, effective consequences and reinforcement, accommodations for academics, and more

  • And more

This unique program teaches such structure and follow through that naturally carries over into other life skills. It is absolutely helpful for those with ADHD, learning disabilities or difficulties, and/or other disorders or challenges.
