StudySpotEF is the web platform from which our online coaching sessions will be held. The platform provides structure to the online sessions and centralizes access to all StudySpot digital content and resources.
StudySpotEF was built to support the development of students’ Executive Functioning skills such as goals setting, organization, and planning. Divided into modules, both coach and student will have the ability to interact with the site in real-time, faciliating the tracking of tests and due dates, chunking large tasks, and planning the week ahead, in a visually engaging way.
Between sessions, students will be able to access StudySpotEF from their smartphone, giving them an at-home/in-school organization tool with which they can add tasks, create to do lists, access their weekly plan and calendar, and use the built-in pomodoro timer. Information the student enters during the week will be available for the coach and student to work with during their next coaching session.
StudySpotEF will provide both coach and student access to the many resources our coaches may use during the session to introduce and practice academic skills such as active reading, note taking, and writing. They will also have access to digital copies of the Study Skills Manuals for easy reference.
The Skills Checklist can be used to monitor progress by tracking when a skill has been introduced, how many times it has been practiced, and when the student has either demonstrated his or her ability or shown evidence of independent use of the skill.
Communication will still take place using a third-party meeting platform, such as Zoom or Google Meets, allowing the coach to take advantage of features such as whiteboards and the ability to share screens.

I would like to thank our coach and your organization for giving my son a great opportunity to improve. He is much more responsible now and understands the importance of working hard as well as how to work and organize himself.
Thanks for your good work with our son – I believe we are starting to see some positive changes and improvements. He seems to have a positive attitude overall and he is getting at his work on his own initiative which is good to see.
Our daughter feels much more confident and on top of her work and comments often about how strong her marks have become. She feels that her sessions with you have been a big reason for the turn around.
Thank you very much for providing such a very helpful facility for my daughter. She has benefited so much from the program, not only for her present situation but I think for life.
