Student Success Coaching

Student Success Coaching provides students from elementary school to university the opportunity to learn the tools and strategies they need in order to succeed, essentially helping them learn how to learn and make healthy choices. Focus is placed on strengthening executive function and academic skills to support the development of self-management, independence and self-esteem by integrating evidence-based strategies & a heartfelt approach rooted in attachment and emotion coaching. 

What happens in a Coaching session?

Coaching sessions are tailored to meet the individual needs of students through the integration and application of crucial executive function skills and active learning methods. Students attend sessions on the same day at the same time each week and work with their coach to:

 

(1) Learn strategies & skills to support organization, time management, executive function development, study skills and academic strategy, accountability, active reading comprehension, structured writing skills, and build self-confidence & independence.

(2) Implement the strategies they've learned in a structured and accountable way. With support from their coach & parents, along with practice, follow-up, and accountability measures, students will begin to implement these skills & become independent learners over time. This can take place over several months or years. 

What do students work on during their sessions?
