Student Coaching Prepares Students for College and the Workforce

As teachers, tutors, counselors, and principals, our consultants have worked with just about every type of student under the sun. Unfortunately, we’ve seen what happens when they lack the skills they need to succeed at the next educational level. Gaps begin to form in their learning. Classes become harder to sit through, homework takes longer to accomplish, and self-esteem plummets.

We designed our Student Coaching service to address these issues. By teaching students the various learning skills they’ve missed along the way, we gradually show them how to fill gaps on their own, guiding them toward responsibility and independence.

The Goal of Student Coaching

The main goal of student coaching is to create mature, responsible students who understand their unique learning styles, are college-ready, and have the skills to participate in the working world.

What Is It?

Student coaching is an educational service that provides students with the academic guidance and learning support they need to succeed in middle school, high school, and college.

How Does It Work?

Working via video conference, we meet one-on-one with students in their schools, at home, or any convenient location where learning can take place.

Is This Tutoring?

Although what we teach goes hand in hand with tutoring, student coaching is different. It focuses on strengthening the skills students need to become independent learners and develop confidence in their abilities.

Why Private Tutoring Isn’t Always Enough

When children are struggling in school, parents typically seek out additional help. Some parents are willing to spend a lot of money on private tutoring but often fail to see the results they were expecting. Why is this?

Unfortunately, all the elite tutoring in the world won’t help a student who has not yet learned how to learn. While one-on-one tutoring and group learning are equally valuable, they do not always translate into independent learning—a skill that becomes increasingly important the further you go up the academic ladder.

Student coaching works, because it gets to the root cause of the issue. When a student understands their unique learning style and how to use it, they’re able to absorb new information. Once this happens, tutors can begin filling in learning gaps for good.

How Do We Help Students Become Independent Learners?

Learning How to Learn

Everyone learners differently (and that’s ok). We help students understand their unique learning process and how to enjoy it.

Organizational Skills

From homework folders to assignment planners, our coaches outline organizational strategies that improve efficiency.

Note-Taking

It’s hard to review past concepts without solid notes. We show students how to take orderly notes that make sense to them.

Study Habits

Our coaches show students how to develop realistic study plans for homework assignments and follow them through to completion.

Regular Check-Ins

Working via private video conference, our coaches connect with students regularly throughout the week and weekend.

Parent Updates

We keep parents in the loop by sending them weekly progress notes and updates via text or email.

“My coach helped me get better grades in math by showing me how to think problems through. She helped me figure out how to learn my math skills in amazing ways I never thought of before. My grades in math were C’s and I felt awful about it. And I couldn’t keep my head up in class sometimes. Now they’re A’s and A+’s. I want to go on to study computer science and be an engineer.”
