About Us

 

Coach Benjamin Mizrahi

Benjamin Mizrahi, a behavior specialist, works with parents, teens, and teachers on enhancing the skills that help us achieve our goals and regulate our behavior.

Students’ performance in the classroom, at home, and later in college interconnects with their ability to discern between right and wrong, delay gratification, and keep up with fluctuating academic demands.

The presentation on executive functions is a learning opportunity for parents who wish to help their children with impulse and emotional control, flexibility, persistence, time management, and organization skills.

Benjamin Mizrahi is a certified ADHD Coach. He also holds a Master’s in Education (M.S.), and a Master’s in Jewish History (M.A.).

Executive Functioning Skills

Executive Function Skills is the term used by developmental psychologists to describe particular skills that adults, as well as children, use every day. These are skill-sets that enable us to organize, plan, remember things, prioritize, pay attention and get started on tasks without any delay. The functions are part of skills that stem from three types of brain functioning: working memory, mental flexibility, and self-control.

Research shows that children are not born with executive functions skills; nevertheless, they are born with the potential to develop them. While some build their self-control during infancy, others do so during adolescence. The full range of abilities continues to grow and mature through the teen years and into early adulthood. Since these skills impact our self-management, anyone would benefit from the knowledge of executive functions, particularly parents and teachers. In school, executive functions are crucial for adequate reading comprehension, structuring essays, math problem solving, planning projects, completing homework assignments, performing well on tests, and becoming active learners in the classroom.

Mr. Mizrahi's mission is to guide and support students, parents, and teachers in developing their executive functions. If low grades, frustration, and poor self-conduct stand in your way to success, Mr. Mizrahi's methodical and proven approach will equip you with the necessary tools to strengthen your executive functions. 

 

Services Offered:

Mr. Benjamin Mizrahi is pleased to offer an Executive Function training to students starting at the age of 14 years old all the way to adults. The three main outcomes students achieve in the program:  

  1. Control over schoolwork – Right from the beginning of the program, Mr. Mizrahi’s program teaches students to manage their time and workload while balancing it with other recreational activities. They can plan and prioritize their tasks without getting overwhelmed or procrastinating.  
  2. Independence – As students proceed in the course, they grow confident and resourceful. These skills combined with increased awareness of their already-existing strengths help students to take ownership over their schoolwork. They learn how they can work without the usual handholding of a parent or a tutor.   
  3. Better grades – All the students that follow the routines and strategies they learn in the program improve their grades by at least one letter grade.   

 

Mr. Mizrahi’s program is well suited for students who are committed and eager to become independent and successful students. The age range of students who join the program is between 14 to 21 years old.  Students have access to our Executive Function Course and Weekly calls to strengthen academic foundational skills, close learning gaps, rebuild confidence, and rediscover love of learning. Parents find new hope as their struggling student progresses. 

 

Mr. Mizrahi’s program trains students to develop their executive skills so they can become independent and successful individuals both in school and out there in the world.
