Frequently Asked Questions

Academic Empowerment Coaching™ is for any student, 8th grade through college, interested in making the most of their education while developing the perspectives and habits necessary for success in the real world. Our program is designed for all kinds of students, from those facing multiple challenges to those who simply want to make their study sessions more efficient and enjoyable.

Our Academic Empowerment Coaches have stellar academic pedigrees, at least five years of experience in tutoring and coaching, and an established daily mindfulness practice. They’re lifelong learners who appreciate the intrinsic value of education and the importance of ongoing personal development. They’re patient, compassionate mentors who find deep satisfaction in helping students define and achieve their goals.

Coaching sessions occur in your home or online, depending on your preferences and location.

During the school year, coaching sessions occur on weekday afternoons or evenings and weekends. Most students complete one to three sessions per week. During the summer, session can also occur on weekday mornings and early afternoons.

Academic Empowerment Coaching™ is very much appropriate for the summer, when students’ schedules are less hectic and it can be easier for them to devote time to developing new perspectives and habits. It’s also ideal for gap year and transfer situations, transitional periods in which students typically reassess their long-term goals.

Glad you asked! We’re actually quite passionate about helping our students improve their grades and test scores. The best way to do that — sustainably — is to foster self-motivation and self-sufficiency. We help students help themselves, so that they can maintain their progress independently.

We want you to make an informed decision, so we offer a complimentary 30-minute phone consultation in which we’ll be happy to answer all your questions. Schedule your consultation here.
