What is coaching?
A collaborative partnership between a coach and a client wherein both parties engage in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires the client to maximize their personal or professional potential. 
                    Note: Coaching is not mentoring, training, consulting, or therapy.

What is academic coaching?

​Academic coaching involves a partnership between coach and student with the focus on improved learning. Together with a professional coach, students examine their learning styles, habits of working, and current difficulties or barriers to success.  Then together this team (coach and student) works to create and put in place more effective strategies than are the norm.  The aim is to heighten awareness of what it takes to achieve academic success and anchor this with new strategies, a supportive relationship, and personal accountability.

During coaching, the student focuses on:

  • Use of time
  • study habits
  • test taking skills
  • note-taking skills
  • reducing anxiety
  • reading, writing and math strategies


Who can use an academic coach?

All students that wish to improve their skills and thus their grades can benefit from an academic coach.  Students entering high school and those entering college especially benefit from the continued coaching through out the year.

What are coaching sessions like?
When coaching, we work one on one in repeating sessions, weekly, bi-weekly or even monthly.  Most clients prefer telephonic sessions but other options are available.  Times for phone calls are based on US Eastern Standard Time (EST).  The first session may be one and one-half of an hour.  Future sessions are 30 to 60 minutes.  The length of the coaching session and relationship is client driven, but typically one hour sessions work optimally and a three to six month relationship is suitable for most objectives.   

How long does coaching take?
Most clients find that they need at least three to six months of coaching for best results - but the client controls the relationship so the amount of coaching depends on the issue and extent of change the client desires.  Think about it, you want to improve a part of your life that has held you back for years or maybe even decades ... lets do it right and create lasting results. 

How do we meet for coaching sessions?
Most coaching sessions are conducted either face-to-face or by phone.  This allows flexibility for the client and coach.  Consistency in meeting is essential to coaching and utilizing the phone allows for more consistency.   Corporate coaching clients are met on site and may progress to telephonic sessions as the relationship progresses.

What is your privacy policy?
