Academic Coaches’ History
Academic Coaches Began in 2003 as a supplemental educational support program for students of ALL Ages, ALL Levels, and ALL Subject areas. Originally founded as an in-home tutoring company, we spent a lot of our time and efforts on homework help because that’s what most parents asked for. What we discovered over time is that students needed more than just homework help. Parents weren’t seeing the results they hoped for when hiring a tutor. We realized that we weren’t working with the whole student.
Just as in sports, a player needs to understand all aspects of the game they are playing. That comes with a lot of practice and repetitions with fundamentals. Understanding that, Study skills and Organizational skills play a huge role in a student’s success in a similar fashion. So does test taking skills. No matter the subject and no matter the level of need, all players can improve if they know how to prepare.
So, after working with students of all ages and all needs for over 10 years, we have learned and grown to understand that students need coaches, not just tutors as we used to think of a tutor. Academic Coaches provides a Holistic well rounded all encompassing support for academic learners to improve the entire overall learning experience.
Students struggling in school struggle at all levels and for different reasons. Our approach is to work with the entire learning process including how to study and strategies to be a better student in whatever area the student needs. Students and learners of all ages need more than homework assistance. Planning ahead for projects and testing plays a big role in student improvement short and long-term. An “A” student can improve their GPA. A “B” student may be on the edge of being an “A” student, but they don’t know how to get to that next level. A “C” student may just need some extra motivation or study skills to become a better student.
Coaching and mentoring students through supplemental education while taking the approach as an education coach-not just a tutor-is what Academic Coaches is about. Anyone can help with homework-it takes a more all-encompassing approach to help reach a student’s true academic goals. Instructors keep up with test planning and project planning in order to prepare more completely for enhancing the student’s academics and maximizing their potential. Our Instructors discuss and assist with organization and study skills as part of our program.
We have Academic Coaches hired and thoroughly trained on staff who understand what is needed beyond simply tutoring.
