Educational Coaching

The gateway to independent learning.

Study harder; study longer, read more books, more discussion and debate, more help... Sound advice and well worn strategies. But, you are already doing this; what's missing? 

  • Blocked, held back and not getting the results you want?
  • Tearing you hair out bringing a project together?
  • You know what you want to say and it's not happening?
  • Need a sounding board for ideas, development and progress?
  • Frazzled!
  • HELP!

Drawing on combined teaching and coaching expertise, I focus on personal development, self-awareness and self-responsibility in order for you to better understand  yourself  and how you affect your outcomes.

  • Examine weaknesses and strengths 
  • Challenge your anxieties and frustrations.
  • Overcome personal and academic obstacles.
  • Address personal organization.
  • Dig beneath surfaces.
  • Identify and design strategies.
  • Design and present the best you.

Current learning environments rely on note taking, memorizing facts and reading texts. As students pass through the school system they are required to develop an increasing range of study skills and to work independently. They are encouraged to take responsibility of their own studies, identify strengths and be able to support weaknesses. Students are expected to be self-motivated, responsible managers; an enormous leap in academic maturity.

Some students are able to adapt to this and flourish. Many don’t. A struggle emerges and it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the sheer size and complexity of what's required and, there is more:

There is an expectation for this transition to be an automatic and natural process. Often, it's not....

We evaluate and discuss leaning preferences and current progress. Focus is around planning, memory, note taking, reading & comprehension techniques, presentation techniques, editorial development and, exam preparation. Coaching to analyzes strengths and weaknesses in order to understand and develop unique plans of action. Goals are monitored to ensure plans are effective.

Short or long term, programs are tailored to suit school, college or university level study.

The foundations of life. Know what you want. Know how to get it.
