CAN YOUR COLLEGE STUDENT BENEFIT FROM AN ACADEMIC COACH?
So many students sail their way through high school, only to find the freedoms of college a tremendous SHOCK. For most young adults, college is the first experience of independent living, free from the more structured environment you provided for them. Aside from getting used to the college atmosphere, students have the freedom to make their own decisions, create their own schedule and develop their own habits without anyone’s input or approval. Some students struggle with the transition because they lack the skills needed to acclimate to this new environment, which can lead to extreme stress, anxiety or even depression. Others let the excitement of the new college experience chip away at their chances of having a successful academic outcome. In either situation, having an academic coach can help put your student on the right track and pave a path to graduation!

HOW ACADEMIC COACHING WILL HELP YOUR STUDENT SUCCEED.
An academic coach inspires students to reach their full potential.
Even though it’s always preferred to take a more proactive approach to academic coaching, it isn’t uncommon for our students to come to us when they need help rebounding from low grades or academic probation. Our personalized 1-on-1 coaching helps these struggling students develop the skills they need to improve their grades and confidence, while devising a plan to reach their long-term academic goals. Our program focuses on supporting students through organization, goal setting, effective study habits, and accountability.
As a parent, you will also appreciate that unlike universities, our coaches are not bound by FERPA and are able to share updates on your student’s progress, grades and academic standing.

AN INVESTMENT THAT PAYS OFF
We realize that college is very expensive. So why add to that expense with Academic Coaching? Precisely because college is so expensive! And the cost of attending college and not graduating costs exponentially more.
It is standard to take out insurance on all the large investments in your life such as your home and car. A college education can cost just as much, and certainly qualifies as an investment. Putting one of our Academic Coaches in place from day one is a comparably small investment to equip your student with the skills necessary to be successful in their education and beyond. They can set your student up to reap the benefits of a well-laid foundation, with academic and life skills that will carry through beyond college.
If you have searched for private tutors or other academic service companies, you will see our price point is very competitive. We guarantee you will not find a more comprehensive program.
GOOD. FIT. GUARANTEED.
Our coaches are dedicated to providing an exceptional experience that is custom-tailored to the individual needs of your student.
