Academic Coaching provides students with the chance to work individually with professional staff members to enhance their academic skills, gain confidence, discover motivation, and improve performance. Academic Coaching students usually schedule a 60 minute meeting weekly, every two weeks, or every month depending on their individual need.
Academic coaching helps students:
· Identify and work through obstacles getting in the way of academic success
· Develop study skills and habits necessary to be a successful college student
· Get motivated and stop procrastinating
· Prepare for tests and reduce anxiety
· Establish a balance between academic rigor and extracurricular activities
· Improve time management skills
· Learn the importance and "how to" of note taking
· Develop short and long term goals for success
· Learn self-discipline, self-motivation and self-efficacy
Accelerate Reading & Learning With Fast ForWord ® Software
The neuroscience-based Fast ForWord® reading program uses adaptive exercises to rewire and strengthen essential cognitive — memory, attention, processing and sequencing — and reading skills, such as decoding, spelling, vocabulary and reading comprehension. While primarily a reading program, Fast ForWord® helps a range of language and learning skills.
Just as physical fitness improves with exercise, brain function will respond to training. The Fast ForWord® program taps into this opportunity to help children at all academic levels read and learn with confidence.
Fast ForWord ® treats the underlying difficulties, not the symptoms and is individualized for each student. Over 2+ million students in 42 countries have used the program with outstanding results through:
Cogmed Working Memory Training® is a research-based, clinically proven computer-based program designed to improve memory capacity through targeted, regimented exercises. There are 3 different age-based versions of Cogmed Working Memory Training®. Cogmed RM®, for school-aged children, consists of 25 computerized training sessions, each 30-45 minutes long. These training sessions involve a variety of game-like working memory tasks that are fun and engaging. The training is lead by a Cogmed® qualified coach such as a psychologist, physician, or trained clinician who organizes the training and provides feedback and progress.
Cogmed® works on the principle of brain plasticity, the idea that the brain can change and improve as individuals “play” the Cogmed® games. The games match each player’s level of learning, ensuring that the training is always occurring at the very edge of their cognitive capacity. Through this system, Cogmed® continually challenges the brain to work at the highest level of functioning.
The subject of more than 50 peer-reviewed studies, Cogmed Working Memory Training® has been demonstrated to improve reading skills, mathematical abilities, and sustained attention. By improving Working Memory — which has been shown to be more important than IQ for school success — the acquisition of new skills becomes much more achievable for both children and adults alike. Enhancing Working Memory capacities can lead to improvements in attentiveness, the ability to control impulses, and gains in reasoning and problem-solving skills.

Professional Coaching is a professional partnership between a qualified coach and an individual or team that supports the achievement of extraordinary results, based on goals set by the individual or team. Through the process of coaching, individuals focus on the skills and actions needed to successfully produce their personally relevant results.
The individual or team chooses the focus of conversation, while the coach listens and contributes observations and questions as well as concepts and principles which can assist in generating possibilities and identifying actions. Through the coaching process the clarity that is needed to support the most effective actions is achieved. Coaching accelerates the individual's or team’s progress by providing greater focus and awareness of possibilities leading to more effective choices. Coaching concentrates on where individuals are now and what they are willing to do to get where they want to be in the future. ICF member coaches recognize that results are a matter of the individual's or team’s intentions, choices and actions, supported by the coach's efforts and application of coaching skills, approaches and methods.
