Academic Coaching with Students in Stapleton

Academic Coaching in Denver

What is Academic Coaching?

Academic Coaching is a partnership between a student and a professional academic coach, which focuses on academic well-being. Professional coaching explicitly targets maximizing potential. Academic coaching focuses on students’ strengths. Students set long- and short-term goals and create actionable strategies while developing skills to succeed in the classroom. At the same time, obstacles and challenges to learning are explored and ‘practices’ for sustained behavioral changes that work, are built. These ‘practices’ also guide students through experiencing emotions intelligently, improve focus, and reduce stress. Students discover the benefits of working intelligently, not necessarily harder. We co-create positive attitudes and habits that foster a love of learning, resulting in academic and personal success. I offer functional life coaching via an integrative model of private professional coaching and teaching in the academic, social and emotional areas. I use a variety of approaches to build on students’ and families’ current strengths and resources to help students gain a sense of self-efficacy: seeing themselves mastering skills, accepting challenges and being resilient in life-situations.

Benefits of Academic Coaching

Academic coaching is a future-focused, discovery-based technique. The student is coached to design solutions within themselves and is held accountable to achieve them.

Academic coaching is designed to benefit students by:

Shifting attitudes

Developing self-advocacy

Gaining confidence and independence

Increasing motivation

Improving organization skills

Reducing stress

Achieving a sense of calm and focus

My academic coaching Denver program is designed to help students maximize their educational experience, get more enjoyment out of their studies, and have a fulfilling and successful life while in school. I use a multi-dimensional and holistic coaching approach, which helps students acknowledge and embrace opportunities. The strategies developed, from my experience as a professional holistic life coach, to help overcome obstacles in school, can easily be adapted and applied in a high school, college, or professional career. The benefits of academic coaching Denver help students make a significant and sustainable difference in their lives.

Sessions for students in Upper Elementary through Middle School take place after school in Stapleton. Sessions are 60 to 90 minutes.
