Academic Coaching


What is academic coaching?

Academic coaching is similar to tutoring, but it's more in depth than just bringing grades up and homework help.

Consider what a sports coach does.  They create winning strategies that utilize the individual strengths of the team members, and improve weaknesses through regular practice sessions.  

As an academic coach, I personalize each student's program in order to engage them, identify strengths and weaknesses, and help them become independent learners through regular study sessions and being an on call source of support.

   

Who benefits from academic coaching?

Any child can benefit from academic coaching, because coaching is about continuous improvement at any level of student achievement.  


Why do I coach?

Children are dependent upon instruction, and sometimes parents and teachers need help with full schedules and other limitations.  I want to be an extension of the teacher and parent, giving them peace of mind that the student is developing to meet their full potential.


My Mission

My purpose as an Academic Coach is to strengthen our community through the personalization of the education of the students I coach, and to assist educators and parents to do the same.


What does the coaching process look like?

First we talk.  The best way to get to know each other is through conversation.  I'll be taking notes on ways I can help you, while asking and answering questions.  This can be done online, in person, or on the phone.



Next, I'll study my notes and think about what we've discussed in order to strategize a game plan. We will meet again and adjust the program to fit your individual needs.  



These initial consultations are absolutely free.  You can even keep the game plan we design, regardless of whether you choose to hire me as your coach!

If you feel I can help you and your student, we will set up a schedule and get started.



I am available more than just during a coaching session.  As part of your coaching package, I will provide you with direct access to me any time.  I know that deadlines sneak up or test dates are forgotten, and sometimes life just happens.  You can be secure in knowing I will be there for support.

Questions? Schedule a consultation with me and we will find the answers.
