Mallory Band is an incredible tutor. She knows exactly the right strategies for getting students to focus, engage in and complete the work. She also empowers students by teaching them the skills and techniques they need to take ownership over the process and to take initiative. She is an advocate for her students and encourages them to advocate for their needs in a school setting. Most importantly, for Mallory, tutoring is not simply about the transmission of information but about creating a relationship. She is kind, patient, and genuinely curious about our child’s learning style. For Mallory, tutoring is about connecting with another person and supporting that person’s learning journey with creativity and compassion.
Our son, who is in 12th grade, was very reluctant to the idea of getting help for his executive functioning challenges related to ADHD. But after a couple of sessions with Mallory, he has come to understand the long-term value that Mallory brings to his academic career as well as to his overall well-being.
Mallory has been an incredible source of support for my son, who is experiencing significant transitioning issues as a college freshman. Her experience helping people with executive functioning was the main aspect we were looking for when searching for a coach. My son has shown improvement in areas of organization and completing both his school tasks and life tasks. Mallory’s communication is informative, consistent and very positive. I highly recommend her for individualized coaching and feel relieved that my son has found someone he can work with that is making a difference in his life.
Mallory has been so helpful in getting our middle school son to understand how to plan out his week and break down longer term projects. Her approach is warm and understanding and yet, she pushes him to be proactive and accountable. She really brings her experiences to the table to help guide her coaching and teaching. This is invaluable for a student to get advice from someone who truly understands what it is like to live with ADHD.
Our 20 year old son has been receiving ADHD coaching from Mallory Band several weeks. It took a few weeks for him to catch on, but he is definitely more motivated and seems very relieved to have someone on his side helping him plan out his schedule and his goals. He has moved from not cleaning his space at all to a clean bathroom. He has gone from staying up all night almost every night to going to bed at a reasonable time and now able to function during the day. He now has goals about work and money that he is motivated about. He is utilizing Mallory’s scheduling tools as well. So far we have been very happy with the progress he is making, and looking forward to more progress!
