Strategies for Academic Success coach Ron Watkins delivers comprehensive techniques and teaching tools to youth educators that can improve lesson plans and bolster student comprehension. The eight-week Basic Strategies course, which meets every Monday from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., focuses on identifying issues that may impede youngsters’ knowledge acquisition, such as motivation issues, disempowering beliefs, and the presence of brain freeze. Ron can then use basic strategies to extract complications buried in the psyche and improve students’ spelling, math, vocabulary, reading, and memorization skills. Strategies for Academic Success’s curriculum is designed to aid not only professional educators but also anyone who participates in a child’s education, including parents, doctors, and curriculum developers.
