1. Practice

Athletic coaches wouldn’t put an unprepared athlete in a big game. Neither would an academic coach throw a student into a test without the proper amount of practice and studying. By employing multiple study strategies and using several types of learning tools, an academic coach will guide your student to the finish line fully prepared and confident.

2. Feedback

After an athlete runs a play, makes a pass, or fouls an opponent, the athletic coach is right there to offer (hopefully) constructive feedback. This is so the athlete either learns to repeat or avoid the actions that led to the event. An academic coach will watch your student’s performance as well, offering tips, positive reinforcement, and guidance along the way.

3. Accountability

Even if the sport is an individual one, the athlete is always competing with their personal best. The amount of quality preparation that is put is proportional to the result. Athletes understand this and will work harder each time to improve. Students need to hold themselves to the same standards. An academic coach can provide insight into how better preparation will produce better results.
