Why We Started ADHD Management

Aug 6, 2020

Buffalo Academy ADHD management practice started in 2009 as a pioneer and visionary in the field of ADHD management in students.  I have been running a college tutoring and career training operation since 2008 in Boulder, Colorado where I graduated in 1986 in Math with emphasis in Econ and Finance.

I tutored other college students with learning challenges when I was a college student making ends meet until I landed my first job on wall street as an actuarial consultant when I graduated from CU, Boulder and passed actuarial exams.  My only secret to tutoring success was repeating things many times over and over but in slightly different ways using obvious examples, be patient and pleasant.  Ironically, that again helped my career in risk management consulting and risk reserving where most people had no clue what I did.

How Our ADHD Management Program came to be 

Now, 25 years later, I had a tutoring company called Buffalo Academy with many students who needed tutoring.  Soon after, I noticed that the majority of college kids who needed tutoring, had learning challenges, most commonly ADHD. I had a student who worked with a therapist when he was in high school and really liked her.  Another student of mine asked me if I knew a ADHD therapist.  So, I hired the therapist to help a few of my college tutoring students with their symptoms.

I will never forget when she came up to me after a few months telling me that she was bored out of her mind.  She explained that she had always worked with high school students and never with college students prior to her experience with Buffalo Academy.  She said to me, I have always wondered what happens to the ones who make it to college, and now I know!” According to her, my students had behavioral issues that affected their performance which could be traced back to lack of discipline, as their ADHD is mild since they were able to make it to college.  My wife was a global implementation project manager at a major global firm at the time. She put together the idea of a project plan, and a mechanism of planning, development, and monitoring techniques to help manage what is expected of a student which acted as the foundation for our ADHD Management program.

A very interesting article from the Journal of Behavior Therapy shows that what we learned through empirical experience and efficient resource management 10 years ago, was proved by scientists. Our Change and crisis management training proved to be a huge success as our current students aced their most recent courses with no supervision, flying solo – despite all the changes and uncertainties of COVID.

The next piece of puzzle was the application of conscious mind/ mindfulness practices to ADHD management which I will explain in the next blog.

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.
