Every day we hear from students and parents about late/lost assignments, ineffective or inefficient study habits, and “I thought I was ready for the test.” Working with students on improving their academic skills is at the core of our academic coaching services. Our goal for every student is to teach him the skills necessary for success on his own. Key areas of academic skills coaching include:
- Time Management
- Note taking
- Study techniques – preparing for tests and quizzes
- Test-taking strategies
- Problem solving strategies
- Goal setting
- Managing long-term assignments
- Metacognitive skills – learning HOW to learn
- And more . . . .
Our methods are evidence-based, stemming from our background as educators and the tenets of Educational Psychology and other educational sciences. Rooted in science and honed through direct experience, our methods are adapted to the needs of each individual student. After all, while many effective habits and skills are universal, each student is unique: different learning styles, different strengths/weaknesses, different levels of confidence, different backgrounds, different habits, etc. You will not find another coaching service as comprehensive and intensive, nor one as supported by evidence and research, as that which we have developed here at Peak.
