What type of academic support your student needs in Santa Ana, CA

Whether it is tutoring for a specific class, or a coach to support them with time management and organization, we can help you determine what type of academic support your student needs in Santa Ana, CA.

In the past, students would feel isolated; as if they had to figure out how to do everything about school on their own. It was almost as if it was expected that they would “just get it” at some point. For so many students, things just never clicked, and they always felt like they were missing something. These feelings led to self-judgement and self-criticism, perhaps leading them to a false conclusion that they were not as smart as other students, or just “bad” at certain subjects. Their own perception of themselves as students became flawed just because they did not have the proper information or perspective.

Fast-forward to today! Resources abound and students have come to understand that if they do not understand something or need help they can ask and it is ok! This progress was slowed, however, by the pandemic and other mitigating factors over the past few years. But Academic Coaching Specialists are determined to get students back on the path of progress with our tutoring and coaching services centered around students today. If your teen could use a confidence boost and some inspiration right about now, we have the recipe!

Tutors at ACS are experienced educators who know their stuff!

Not only are they experts in their areas, but they have a rich career of working with a diverse group of learners. This gives them the ability to anticipate common challenges and multiple “tools” to help your student overcome obstacles. Our tutors are dedicated to improving grades and comprehension, but also, they hope to provide a little inspiration. As mentioned above, oftentimes students can become discouraged over years of poor feedback in a specific subject that leads them to believe that they are just not good at it. Through techniques and strategies used by our tutors, they will demonstrate to your student that they are in fact, very capable and may even find that they like the subject after all! We have even had turnaround stories of students who had written off careers in a particular field because they knew they needed a lot of a particular subject they perceived themselves to be “bad at”. With their new-found confidence they changed majors to what they truly wanted in a career. Best. Outcome. Ever! 

Coaches are equally versed in the arts of “studenting”, which essentially means they understand what skills are needed to be a good student and they know how to teach these. Our coaches are so good at this that they can actually anticipate what the student needs before they need it! Amazing! 

Each week they will create a snapshot of items to work on so that there is clarity around what is being done. A lot of what a coach does is help the student change or create a new habit. This will take some time and require a level of dedication, similar to that of an athlete committing to a sport for the season. The coach and student are committed to keeping up their ends and in turn, develop a relationship that provides trust, accountability, encouragement and inspiration. Academic coaching is not for everyone, but for the students who choose to accept the challenge, their lives as a student are forever changed for the better!
