COACHING FIT FOR ACADEMICS
As an academic coach, I work with high school and college students outside of their school setting. I’ll help to remove stress from their lives and increase their effectiveness and confidence in their academics and in the rest of their lives, too. All my academic coaching students are eased through a variety of topics to enhance their academic awareness through their motivation, confidence, capacity, strategy, prioritization, goal setting, and goal achievement. More specifically, academic coaches help students learn strategies for time management, organization, effective studying, and self-advocacy. They also work on mindset, motivation, mindfulness, memory strategies, and executive functioning skills. I will track and collect all data during this process, so you can see how far you’ve come and how far you can go!
AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR FUTURE
Education is one of the most important resources we have. We will use it to establish your independence or transform yourself. An Academic Coach enhances the chances of success at school by getting a good look at fit and resource optimization. Any good academic coach knows that a good environment contributes to your well-being, productivity, and satisfaction, while an ill fit contributes to high stress, dissatisfaction, and deteriorating health. Like a tutor, academic life coaches work with a student throughout the semester. Unlike a tutor, who focuses on teaching a single content area, an academic coach focuses on learning habits across all content areas, focusing on goal-setting, skill-building, study routines, and learning strategies to help the student troubleshoot their own learning. The academic skill-building strategies I help you put in place are all based on research that shows real evidence that they really work and are useful across ALL subjects, and not just the specific subject that the student thinks they need support in.
Additionally, I have additional specific training and expertise in coaching people and/or groups affected by ADHD and/or executive functioning deficits. Therefore, there can be additional focus on working on skill-building, personal goals, and the pragmatic issues of achieving them while living with ADHD or ADHD-like symptoms, if needed.
