There’s more to student success than getting good grades. A positive attitude, resiliency, positive decision-making, and effective time management are the true steppingstones to student success both in and out of the classroom.
I work with tweens through young adults to help them develop these and other skills that help them reach their goals, increase self-confidence, and turn challenges into opportunities for success.
Today’s students have a lot on their plates—school, homework, after-school activities, community involvement and much more. As a result, students are increasingly feeling overwhelmed and exhausted, and having difficulty achieving balance in their lives.
I give students the tools they need to become happy, successful individuals who are confident in making positive choices. Once students learn the concepts I teach them, they feel in control and empowered to do their best in every aspect of life.
Topics I coach around include:
— Time Management
— Developing Good Study Habits
— Test Anxiety
— Increasing Self-Esteem
— Goal Setting
— Career Exploration
— Handling Peer and Social Pressures
— Transitioning into High School
— Developing Life Skills
— College Application and Selection Process
— Effective Communication
— Managing Expectations
— Change and Transition
The student and I work together to identify challenging areas and uncover what is preventing them from being their best. I do this by focusing on their specific needs and strengths. We then create a plan with specific steps they can take to make positive changes and reach their goals.
"Out of an infinity of choices, there's always one - the right choice that creates maximum happiness for you as well as for those around you."
