December 9th Executive Functioning Workshop for Families
Are you or your child frustrated because he/she is struggling with homework, tests and long term projects? The hidden culprit is often executive functioning skills.

Led by Nurturing Wisdom Tutoring Vice President and Vine Academy Director Amanda Vogel, this workshop is ideal for parents and students in grades 6-12. The cost of the workshop is $50 per student. Workshop participants will learn how to build homework routines, organize school materials, take notes that make studying easier, and manage time more effectively. Space is limited! 
Parents of students

Students will also receive a copy of test results on Thursday, December 11. 
FREE practice test for the new SAT
C2Education has opened a new tutoring and test prep center in Wheaton.  As part of their opening, they are offering a FREE practice test for the new SAT, which will be introduced for the Class of 2017.  The practice tests will be held on December 6, 13 and 20th.
