Many students and adults have difficulty managing their work demands and their daily routines. Even bright individuals can lack the skills to be productive and effective at school or on the job - and to maintain healthy self-care habits. At Beyond BookSmart, we teach students what they haven’t learned in school: how to manage their time, resist distractions, prevent getting derailed by their emotions, cultivate healthy, independent routines, and conquer procrastination. Our adult coaching division, WorkSmart Coaching, specializes in 1:1 work with adults to learn those same skill sets.
While our clients come from all different backgrounds and circumstances, they often have one thing in common: that their results in school or on the job don’t match their potential to achieve, or that they are working themselves to exhaustion to maintain good grades or meet their daily demands. Our coaching provides the missing link, teaching students and adults

In middle school, students must learn to adapt to the expectations of several different teachers who may schedule tests and due dates for projects on the same day. Developmentally, parents see that middle school students may insist on managing their academics without parental oversight, yet they are often unequipped to do this independently.
