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 Executive Functioning Peer 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 an executive functioning tutor should contact Anna Brandt, anna.brandt@oberlin.edu.

Executive Functioning Programs

Oberlin students who want to develop their organizational and time management skills can take advantage of the following offerings:

  • Attend a weekly drop-in workshop. Sessions are led by our executive functioning peer tutors from 4:30-5:30 p.m., Tuesdays in the Science Center, room A247. Each week the peer leader will briefly discuss a topic. Students will have time to outline plans, work on tasks, and connect with others for advice.
  • Meet with an Executive Functioning Peer Tutor. Schedule a one-on-one session to get support with organizational tasks. Students can sign up for a 45-minute meeting held in the Terrell Main Library, room 204 at a day and time convenient for them.
