Online academic coaching that provides personalized support from a knowledgeable and caring academic coach (who is also a former teacher!) for students in both traditional and non-traditional school settings.
We use a holistic approach and incorporate social-emotional learning to build executive functioning skills with students in grades 6-12 and with college students.
Who is this for?
Students who want extra support & guidance from an academic coach who understands both what they're learning and how to best learn it
Students who do best 1-on-1
Students who struggle with skills like writing, studying, organizing
Students do well in school overall, but wish it felt more peaceful or easy; it feels like an emergency each time they need to study for a test or complete a project
Students who want to learn how to study and organize their time but have never learned how or have never implemented what they’ve learned
Students who want to do well but are struggling to motivate themselves
What does this support look like?
Weekly coaching session(s)
Goal Setting: The coach and student set a long-term goal supported by habit-building and check in about progress weekly
Plan The Week: Next, we talk about what’s coming up that week for students: tests, assignments, projects, deadlines. We look at long-term & short-term tasks and talk about what needs to happen that week to get there.
Work Time: We help the student with the tasks they most need support on for that week.
Next Steps: We provide accountability about follow-through.
We meet for the equivalent of 34 weeks per school year; 55 minutes each or 2 half sessions of 25 minutes each.
The coach sends a follow-up email to parents and students summarizing the session, upcoming assignments, and the steps the student is committing to taking that week to meet all of their deadlines
Students will be able to reach out to their coach via text or app for support and questions between sessions

Do you know your child need help but they need to hear it from someone who is not their parent?
Are you looking to build your child's overall academic confidence rather than just focus on one or two subjects?
Do you value learning and growth over grades and SAT scores?
If you said yes...
