About

Equipping students with simple and effective organisational, time management and study skills which are key to their success and enjoyment at school and in life. In the process it is also about removing stress and anxiety for parents and them!

Does any of this sound familiar?

So you have a son or daughter who is a student and sometimes you’re not sure they’re on top of things, and not sure how to help? They:

- seem unsure of what homework needs to be completed and when it is due
- are struggling with getting the marks they are capable of in tests or exams
- seem overwhelmed and not sure where to start?
- struggle with time and the management of a student planner/diary
- work late until the night before in order to complete a task
- sometimes or regularly miss project deadlines
- do't appear to understand the difference between homework and study/revision
- are irritable, snappy and stressed or quiet and withdrawn
- have a cluttered and disorganised desk or bedroom
- have a school bag or locker full of ‘stuff’, the contents of which is largely unknown to them or anyone else.

There is a solution!

We work individually with students to develop a personal organisational approach that will work for them and help them take responsibility for their school work, activities and time.

In my role as an academic life coach I ask students questions to assess what they do and don't know rather than jumping right in and solving the "problem". Often they know more than they realise and its about building up their tool box with the right tips and strategies to suit them.

Many of our students are located around the country these days and we use technology to connect up and work together virtually (ZOOM in most cases).

Organising Students also conducts workshops for both students and parents either in or outside of the school environment.
