Academic Coaching -- Focus on Process
Successful learning is a process that requires a set of skills and attitudes that crosses the boundaries of subject areas. Students need understanding of task analysis, organization, planning, prioritizing, note-taking, exam and test preparation, and reading comprehension to make the most of the classroom experience offered by their teachers.
Underachievement in school is a complex concern that involves elements of confidence, motivation, and attitude as well as the students' natural abilities. Many classroom behavior issues can be traced to underachievement in academics.
Academic Coaching maximizes learning potential by teaching and reinforcing skills for life-long learning success--planning, organization, and time management; development of reading and note-taking skills; improving written expression; and learning how to prepare for the testing examinations which have become such a large part of student assessment and evaluation today.
