Good academic coaches are experienced educators who care deeply about the success of their students with challenges. Your student deserves the best! Expert educators who can take your student from where they are to where they want to be. 

Communication with student, parent and school puts a good coach in the role of liaison. They should openly share progress, challenges, and success as they work with your teen each week.

Lastly, a plan of action should be laid out after each session, so that the student understands what they need to be doing to ensure progress between meetings. This allows for trust between the two and an understanding of roles, that can function as a mentor/mentee type of relationship.

3 Ways a Tutor Can Help Your Student Destress

Is your student anxious or stressed out about a particular teacher or subject this year? Here are 3 ways a tutor from Academic Coaching Specialists can help them relax and overcome a perceived challenge:

1. Talk them through negative feelings

Often students are worried because of things they have heard other students say about a teacher or subject, never before having experienced themselves. Or, perhaps they had one negative interaction where now they feel as if all hope is lost.
Our tutors can help navigate those feelings and guide them to a healthier view of what their experience can be.

2. Improve their grades

Grades will go up as a result of the efforts put in. Dedication on both the coach and student’s parts will yield better test grades and an overall improvement across the subject. This has an immediate effect of relief for the student and parent. This may be the original intent and main goal of the tutoring efforts, but there is much more being gained.

3. Improve their confidence

Once students experience a good grade or 2, their confidence level is raised. This causes a cascade effect and improves their effort and attitude. This of course, comes from the instruction and practice provided by the tutor.
