Talks & Workshops for Schools

Nurturing Wisdom Tutoring isn't just for kids! We love to share our expertise with Chicagoland parents and teachers, too.

“Nurturing Wisdom has been a wonderful partner to our school. They have offered top-notch test prep services, and their executive functioning workshops have proved to be very useful to many of our students. Whatever supplemental services we have collaborated on, they have proved to be worthwhile. I love their pedagogy and the way that they seem to very student-focused instead of business and revenue-focused."

- Eddie Pryce, Secondary School Placement Counselor, Catherine Cook School

Presentations for Parents

In our presentations for parents, we take a closer look at topics such as motivation, routine-building, and the test prep process, making them more accessible so that you can apply practical strategies as soon as you get home! We'll customize the talk to your group's needs and coordinate with your schedule. Click here to learn more about all of our presentation topics.

Executive Functioning Workshops

Our executive functioning workshops are a great opportunity for parents and students to learn the executive functioning skills that are critical to academic success. These hands-on workshops for students in grades 6 – 12 teach concrete strategies for organization, time management, and studying that students can begin using right away. Learn more about our Executive Functioning Workshops here.

Teacher Professional Development

A good deal of the strategies we've developed for one-to-one tutoring can be applied in the classroom. As former teachers ourselves, we are uniquely qualified to teach teachers - and we thoroughly enjoy spending time with them!

In our executive functioning teacher professional development, we share practical organization, time management, study skills, and long-term planning strategies that teachers can easily incorporate into their day to day work with students. We'll work closely with you to customize our presentation to address your school's specific challenges, needs, and strengths. If requested, we can help schools develop school-wide systems that support students' executive functioning skills.

We can also adapt any of our parent talks into presentations for teachers, see our talk topics here!

Our Process

We're committed to creating a customized presentation or workshop that works for your school!

  • Prior to the talk or workshop, one of our presenters will talk with you about your goals so we can tailor to your group.
  • We'll work with your schedule, presenting on a day and time that works for you.
  • We'll be candid with you about the cost, time required, and content.
  • Questions? Concerns? You'll work closely with a coordinator who will guide you through each step of the process.
  • After the talk, we'll ask you and your group for feedback so we can continue to improve what we offer!

    We contracted with NW to provide parenting presentations and skills workshops to our local youth. The staff were very high energy and well organized in their presentations to the community. I would definitely recommend them for a school, library, or PTA-sponsored workshop.

    Nurturing Wisdom has been a wonderful partner to our school. They have offered top-notch test prep services and feedback that are on par with other popular sources I have worked with; and their executive functioning workshops have proved to be very useful to many of our students that need a little bit of extra help in that area. Whatever supplemental services we have collaborated on, they have proved to be worthwhile. I love their pedagogy and the way that they seem to very student-focused instead of business and revenue-focused.
