Student Academic Success Programs (SASP) offers programming for students needing support with executive functioning skills. Students who struggle with executive functioning skills often have trouble with organizational tasks such as creating a plan for the week, prioritizing tasks, responding to emails, and breaking down an assignment into smaller pieces.

We provide skill building and guidance through our Productivity Programming Tutors. These are Oberlin students who are hired by SASP staff based on their interest in helping other students with organizational strategies. These tutors have demonstrated their ability to navigate their own executive functioning challenges and find strategies that work well for them and others.

Tutors meet weekly with SASP staff to participate in and receive training on a variety of topics. Any Oberlin student who’d like to become a productivity programming tutor should contact Anna Brandt, anna.brandt@oberlin.edu .

Productivity Programming

Oberlin students who want to develop their organizational and time management skills, and learn strategies for working remotely, can take advantage of the following offerings:

  • Attend a  workshop session on a range of topics to be led by our productivity programming tutors.  Days and times for spring 2020 TBD.
  • Meet with a Productivity Programming Peer Tutor. Schedule a one-on-one session to get support with organizational tasks. Students can sign up for a meeting that will be held over video chat or by phone at a time convenient for them.
