Exasperated by exams?  
Lost in the library?  
Fed up with failure?  
Terrified by teachers?

 
Just as athletes need coaches to be the best in their sport, students sometimes need a coach to help them focus their gifts and get the most out of their educational experience.  
As your academic coach, I will help you:
 
  • Create a plan and establish study habits that will allow you to reach your educational/career goals.
  • Focus on the future and creating your ideal life.
  • Find your strengths; learn to avoid your weaknesses.
  • Improve your working relationships with your teachers and other adults who are important in your life.

The realities of the world economy make educational success a must.

            FEES & SERVICES

In over 30 years as an educator I have known hundreds of students who, although bright, creative and capable, have experienced difficulties achieving success in school.  The reasons varied by individual, but in many cases, these students simply needed help in areas such as:
  • Time management
  • Organization
  • Note-taking
  • Reading for retention
  • Study habits
  • Some students have floundered because of a lack of focus, and needed help in developing realistic plans for their futures. 
 
As your coach, I will focus on your needs, whether these relate to developing more efficient academic strategies, college preparation, choice or admissions, or clarifying career goals.  It will be my mission to help you find the answers that work for you, and to support you in the changes that you make that will result in improved academic performance.  Our discussions will be focused on you.
 
Fees:
  • Initial consultation:  $100.00.

  • Monthly:  $250.00   
    Includes 2 20-min. personal coaching phone sessions per week, with e-mail contact as needed. 

  • Individual packages may be available based on your needs.
