Frequently Asked Questions
What is educational coaching?
We all remember that one teacher, coach, neighbor, or mentor that had an impact on us. They encouraged us when things got hard, motivated us to persevere, and celebrated when we hit a milestone. They believed we could do it because they believed in us. At the heart of educational coaching is a trusting relationship that can help a student reach their fullest potential. An educational coach knows the plan forward and leads the way. It treats the underlying causes of learning difficulties rather than simply treating the symptoms. It is an intense mediated approach to intervention which strengthens areas that are weak. It is more than helping students memorize facts and figures or knowing what to think. Educational Coaching also teaching students how to think which will have a lasting impact on the students’ learning journey.
