We are a network of independent professionals dedicated to helping students with complicated learning profiles excel in their academic and personal lives through the formation of positive habits and development of lifelong organizational skills.
Organizational Tutors is a network of highly-trained tutors, academic and executive functioning coaches, educators, and learning specialists, founded and led by Anna Levy-Warren, Ph.D. All tutors in our network hold graduate level degrees and have a background in working with students with a combination of educational and cognitive challenges.
We provide in-home specialized and individualized tutoring and coaching for students of all ages who struggle with executive functioning and attentional weaknesses, language-based learning problems, visual-spatial and auditory processing issues, and social/emotional difficulties that impede their academic success.
We currently operate in the greater metropolitan areas of New York City, New Jersey (Hudson, Bergen, Essex, Morris, Middlesex, Somerset, and Mercer counties), Westchester, Connecticut, Los Angeles, CA, Austin, TX, and Chicago, IL. We have an extensive videoconferencing program for high school and college students located in other regions.
Organizational Tutors helps develop organizational skills for life beginning with interventions for elementary school through college. We approach our work from the developmental perspective offering customized, individualized support based on each client’s specific needs and developmental stage. We work with students from both public and private schools throughout the tri-state area and collaborate closely with teachers, learning specialists and other therapeutic supports to provide the most consistent and comprehensive system of care.
What is Executive Functioning?
Executive Functioning (EF) refers to an interrelated set of cognitive processes that govern goal-directed behaviors and enable us to effectively manage everyday activities. Key academic abilities generally rely on EF: planning ahead, keeping track of materials/tasks, managing time, effectively processing information, maintaining focus, organizing thoughts, adapting knowledge for particular situations, screening for errors, and managing frustration. These abilities are also tremendously important outside of the classroom.
Numerous studies demonstrate the ability of targeted interventions to significantly improve EF. Research indicates that EF provides the foundation required for success across academic, occupational, and social-emotional realms. Therefore, we approach our work with a dedication to the profound importance of the development of EF skills and strategies, and their ability to foster transformative changes within our students.
Our Primary Goals
