Time Management Mentoring for Student Success
(High School & College)

Dear Parent,

Is your child struggling with time management, or not getting homework in on time? 

 

Are they overwhelmed or not sure where to begin?

 

You want what’s best for your child. After all, that’s why you’re here, right?

 

As the saying goes, “it takes a village,” so let’s team up and help your child out, together! 

 

After being back in College after over a decade, technology has changed so much since I was in school. Not only did I not have the tools that as we do today, but there are also more distractions than ever.  My time management and productivity had to change as well.

 

Your child has a lot more going on in their life than you may remember, especially in this fast-paced digital age.  

 

They want to balance studying, a social life, enjoy hobbies, and actually get some sleep. 

 

Maybe they also have a job or even want to build a side business. 

 

Your child has big dreams, but not sure how to accomplish them. 

 

You’re in the right place!

 

As your peer mentor, I’ll work together with your child to help them get the most out of their time so they can turn those dreams into a reality. 

 

As your child’s mentor, I’ll help them become a high-achiever, utilizing the tools and strategies that work best for their personality and learning style. 

Why is Time Management for Your Child?

Time Management is an important soft skill that helps students prioritize tasks and more accurately estimate the amount of time needed to complete them. It helps them complete activities in a timely fashion, and learn to manage and stick to a schedule, without getting overwhelmed and burning out

 

School teaches a lot of topics, but not enough life skills. Time Management is one of those that is needed but isn’t taught.  

 

That’s where I come in as your child’s Peer Mentor.

Peer Mentoring vs Tutoring?

Peer Mentors show your child how to navigate the entire process while supporting them in a variety of aspects including those beyond academics.

 

A Peer Mentor:

  • Has been exactly where you are right now
  • Shares the expectations that lay ahead
  • Provides tips that save you time and effort
  • Speaks directly to your concerns of the unknown
  • Recommends regular touchpoints to gauge progress & stay on track

    A Tutor is a student who has been trained in tutoring strategies and has successfully passed the courses they tutor in with a grade of ‘B’ or better.

     

    A Tutor:

    • Has likely taken the course you need help with (the exception is Live Help tutors)
    • Can support you when you have specific questions about assignments
    • Can provide perspective about what will be helpful for the course

      After working together, your student will…

      • Know study habits that help prevent procrastination and distractions 
      • Have an important soft skill to add to their resume’ and have for the rest of their life
      • Know how to implement the next steps for goals
      • Be more self-disciplined
      • Get ahead in their life and career
      • Know how to set goals and achieve them

      How it Works

      1. We’ll have an initial 30 minute Consultation to discover your child’s time management needs and goals. This is a safe and an open conversation between you, your child, and myself to get the most out of it.
      2. Mentoring can be in person if you’re local, or online via Zoom or Facebook video.
      3. You’ll Schedule the first Mentoring session 1 week in advance. The rest can be scheduled at the end of each session thereafter.
      4. You’ll pay upfront  securely through PayPal.
      5. At the end of each session, I’ll write a summary for you on what I helped your child with and what you can help them be accountable for. This will be one of a few other progress trackers I’ll implement. 

      Meet Your Peer Mentor

      Like you or your child, I wasn’t naturally good at time management, goal setting, or planning. 

       

      It wasn’t until in my late 20’s that I finally figured out this important soft skill while working and building a business on the side. 

       

      After going back to college 12+ years later for AAS in Business Administration, I realized time management is a skill I wish I had started at a younger age. It would have made life so much easier. 

       

      Instead, I had to learn the hard way – showing up late, not realizing how long tasks took, wasn’t self-disciplined, and having a horrible sleep schedule. This made me get overwhelmed and burn out a lot.  

       

      Now, after 10+ years, I help friends, family, and business owners manage their time and priorities so they can get more done.
