Procrastination: What’s Your System?

May 2nd, 2018|

Everyone puts things off. We avoid doing the things we dread, the things that are boring, and the things that can wait. We promise ourselves that we’ll do it tonight, tomorrow, or on the weekend. If it’s important, it will get done; if it’s not, it may just fall by the wayside.

Evoke Learning 2018 Summer Programs

March 20th, 2018|

Summer learning programs can help students improve their academic outcomes. Studies show that vacation from school results in lost knowledge and skills, especially in math and reading (on average, students lose about 2.6 months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills during the summer) (Cooper, 1996).

What is Evoke Learning?

Building Self-Directed Learners. Building Confidence

Our clients are challenged to identify needs and create solutions. They are given support in organizing and completing tasks. Central to the coaching effort is regular contact to set weekly goals, identify road blocks to achieving objectives and creating plans of action.

Coaches avoid giving advice and work in a responsive, non-directed way. Through coaching techniques students develop their ability to think effectively. Many students will respond more positively to coaching techniques than traditional learning strategies.
With an Evoke coach, students explore present challenges, examine potential options and take actions in order to grow and improve. Read more about Academic Coaching HERE

What people are saying about us

I want to thank you for all your help and support these last couple of months. I know that [our son] actually enjoyed (!) the sessions and my wife and I were very pleased with the results. Thanks again and have a great summer.

I just wanted to again mention how beneficial my sessions with Anthony were/are. He really exceeds any expectations I had about this experience, and has taught me so much, both practically and in my thought processes. I wrote about this in the survey, but I just felt that you should know how much I’ve benefited. Especially as I’m an older student (28), I am honestly surprised about how far along I’ve come, and this is in no small part due to the coaching I have received from Anthony.

Having a coach means always having someone in your corner, even when you feel overwhelmed or lost. Denise helped us understand our son’s diagnosis of ADHD and learning disabilities, gave us strategies and suggestions to implement at home, and encouraged all of us to see and utilize his strengths. That support has made a big difference in his life and to our family.

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the work you did with our daughter last Fall. She had a fantastic report card, and is very proud of herself! I think that your work with her, plus the excitement of going to her new school, really brought out the best in her. Thank you very much!
B.W., Parent
