How Mindfulness Helps ADHD

Aug 12, 2020

Once we added our time management/project management program to Buffalo Academy  tutoring programs, our students (with and without ADHD) started to show significant improvement to their performance but something was missing, and I didn’t know what it was or where to look.
 
Several semesters later, I had a student who had fallen behind in her classes as a result of a failed knee surgery.  The university had placed her on academic probation.  She was extremely motivated and project management seemed to be working for her, helping her manage her goals, tasks, planning and performance.
 
One day she came to my office in tears and quite shaken up, informing me that her brother had committed suicide and that she was falling apart.  She clearly communicated that she needed help as she was extremely depressed and saddened.  I suggested to her to immediately seek medical help from a professional counselor to which she replied that she was seeing one but it didn’t help her much.

I talked to my own doctor who was a master of relaxation and meditation about her and asked him for help!  He advised me to help her relax and meditate to live in the moment and appreciate life.  He said that I may even be able to help her relax as he had been training me on relaxation and meditation since my back injury 18 years ago, and that I was the master now!
 
I put a team together, starting with an old friend of mine who was a former college counselor helping students with emotional issues.  She is super kind and loving, and I always called her Mother Earth.  I also hired  an awesome Buffalo Academy student whose mom had trained him in meditation and yoga since early childhood.  We put a program together to help my student relax and appreciate life and her own happiness, living in the moment, learning to focus on now and where she wants to be.  A few months later, she improved significantly, got through her academic challenges, her knee fixed up and got in good standing with the university again.
 
Buffalo Academy helped her conquer her challenges.  She is getting her PhD in psychology now.  Being there for her, helped me create the Buffalo Academy ADHD Management and Mindfulness Program that has helped many other students deal with challenges of many types in life quite successfully and comfortably.  Mindful practices help students with ADHD focus, learn better, and be better test takers.  This program compliments our project management program to create an organic growth structured around the student with ADHD.  I have had students with ADHD become more successful and wholesome than students without ADHD, becoming A+ students who thrive on happiness and success.  This program helped many Buffalo Academy students effectively manage anxiety, stress, panic attacks, self-confidence and self-image.  In fact, our students with ADHD outperformed our students without ADHD during the numerous crises created by COVID.
 
We, at Buffalo Academy, pride ourselves with being a true safety net at college campuses.  We pride ourselves with helping under-performing students be super successful.  Today, we have many students with ADHD who not only excel at school but are also in our ERM Academy program getting a jump start on careers, landing some of the most amazing jobs in the world.  ERM Academy students make more money than Business school graduates or graduates with economics PhD.

After a questionable semester and academic probation, I worked with Buffalo Academy to help with three classes over the summer. I loved everyone I worked with and finished with three A's! I know how to plan my time and schedule thanks to the project management addition. I currently have one private tutor through them as well as a group session with classmates. Mori is very personable and takes time and energy to work with you and to help in ANYWAY. They didn't have a tutor for one of my summer classes but the next day I get an email that they had found one!

In my sophomore year at the University of Colorado I switched my major to economics and had serious concern regarding my performance in my most difficult classes. After failing a midterm and conjuring feelings of hopelessness regarding much of the material, I realized I had to do something different. Luckily, I found the Buffalo Academy. Within only a few hours of tutoring there my feelings of stress and uncertainty turned in to confidence. I was able to spend the rest of my semesters at CU practically care free because I knew that the support I got from Buffalo Academy would provide me with the understanding of any school material I needed help with. If you want to gain better understanding of material, get better grades, build confidence and rid yourself of stress, check out Buffalo Academy.

I am a tutor for Buffalo Academy and it is by far the best tutoring job (out of several) I've ever had!! Mori and Ryan are great at communicating with the tutors and the process is so easy. The compensation is great and they set you up with the students needing tutoring. So glad I found them!

I'm an organic chemistry tutor for Buffalo Academy and I have really enjoyed working with them so far. They help put me in touch with students and I receive a little side money that helps support me while I'm earning my PhD (in organic chemistry). Everything has been really efficient and no complaints so far.

Best tutoring experience I have ever had.  Whenever I needed help in undergraduate school, Buffalo Academy never failed me.  The owner, Mori, is a great teacher and truly cares for the success of his students.

Buffalo Academy is awesome! The tutors are great and really know their stuff. They make it so flexible and they have so many tutors that teach so many different subjects. The rate is great and it's been an excellent learning experience working one-on-one with students to get their grades better. I've met some great people through Buffalo Academy!

I really can't say enough about the Academy and Mori. The support they gave our college student son was wonderful, but the way the program augmented his studies was incredible. He learned so much that wasn't covered in typical college courses and was fully prepared (and qualified) as he entered the workforce full time. They were fully transparent about the cost and what we could expect and put us in touch with former students.
