Could Your Teen Use Some Academic Help This Year?

High School and College can be some of the best time in your child’s life. But if school has been challenging for your son or daughter it can also be an uncertain and anxiety-filled roller coaster. Will they succeed? Do they just need to find themselves? Can they handle this new level of independence and all that is expected of them?

Academic Coaching Specialists can provide you and your child with an added layer of support for this journey. We offer several options that focus on specific and measurable goals for the semester or school year. Our aim is to enrich their talents, walk them through their challenges, and give them the tools and confidence they need to be successful in high school, college and beyond.

Many times, students are expected to “just know” how to do things, such as balance multiple subjects, projects and time commitments. Often overwhelmed or frustrated by this assumption, their confidence can be lowered, and they can start to withdraw or shut down. They can start feeling obligated to do it all on their own.

Our seasoned educators are able to anticipate and respond to these feelings, allowing the student to feel supported and lessens the chance that they will stumble when faced with a task they find difficult or confusing.

If your student struggles, or if you have specific concerns for them, let our academic coaching and tutoring in Sandy Springs, GA be the gift that will last!

TUTORING IN SANDY SPRINGS

Of course, you are familiar with tutoring and what tutors do. At Academic Coaching Specialists, we take it a step further.

Backed by years of success in education, our academic tutoring in Sandy Springs, GA uses content support for their focused subject, study skills development for future use, and mentorship to guide them through it all. These three things combine to allow your student to really master difficult material for their class, and learn how to overcome future challenges, work through frustrations, and use proactive strategies to stay ahead. We teach them to see the signs that trouble may be ahead, and we provide them with the tools to self-initiate the process of reaching out for help.  

  • Understand challenging material
  • Learn how and when to ask for help
  • Develop proactive strategies for problem solving
  • Increase their confidence for learning challenging things 

SANDY SPRINGS ACADEMIC COACHING

Have you heard of an Academic Coach? It’s similar to an athletic coach in that they provide accountability, encouragement and performance feedback, but it is for academics rather than sport. 

Think back to the teacher or coach you liked most growing up. It was typically the one who cared, showed interest in your life, or demonstrated compassion. Maybe they liked to crack jokes or do things differently in the classroom or on the court. Most of all, they encouraged you and pushed you to be your best.-These are our academic coaches. 

We utilize only those individuals who have a heart for helping students. Every single one has an amazing professional background, personality, and story. They want to share their experiences to help your son or daughter be their best. They will provide mentorship and guide your student through each week with purposeful and timely material that is always relevant to what is happening in their classes. They will never wonder, “what does this have to do with anything?”.

Using the philosophy of “begin with the end in mind”, we demonstrate how long-term planning and goal setting is an important part of the process for students. By beginning their journey with the end in mind, it clearly determines motivation and naturally defines the “why”. This helps the student articulate and understand their goals, purpose, and path. Our method includes a heavy focus on time management and organization, which we have found to be key to their success.

Our academic coaching in Sandy Springs, GA, can have monumental impact on their academic future! Help them to:

  • stay organized
  • manage their time
  • avoid procrastination
  • grow from feedback
  • manage stress & anxiety
  • become more confident
