Why Effective Students? 

Founded in 2015 by a fellow parent, Rachael Barron, Effective Students specifically targets the skills students need to address academic and personal demands successfully.  Students often 'hold it together' at school but when they come home to complete homework or study, parents see up close the difficulties students encounter when trying to follow through. 

With over 20 years of experience solving complex learning problems as an educational advocate, Rachael decided she could make the biggest impact working directly with students and their parents to improve the student's experience with academics.  On this call, we will discuss your specific concerns and possible interventions to positively impact your student success.

Effective Students 

Your educational partner since 2015

 Executive Functions are the leading indicator of long term success.  Effective Students was started to help students develop confidence and competence with it comes to academic management skills, one component of executive functioning skills.  We observed that bright students often do not thrive because managing tasks like organization, time management and how to study interfere with their success.  We change that so students can thrive.  


Summer Programs & Workshops

Executive Function skills are a key indicator of long term student success. To help students and teachers prepare for next year, Effective Students offers summer programming to help students get ahead.  


Equipping Educators

Teaching time management, organizational skills, and study skills, is  challenging when you are inundated with state-based test scores.  Implementing the Effective Student™ course into your classroom and curriculum can help.
