Is Educational Coaching right for your family?
What is Educational Coaching? by Adam Meyersieck
Every child is unique and deserves to be seen and treated as an individual. Many families employ tutors who provide skill support for aspects of reading, writing, and math. While this might be a good start for many, tutoring can easily “miss the mark” if it only addresses a whittled down curriculum skill needed to perform a specific task.
Educational Coaching is different. It is rooted in the belief that healthy families are the greatest strength in our society, and that parents are the anchors for children and young people in a rapidly shifting culture. Educational Coaching partners with parents and emphasizes: + Discovering strengths, discussing ideal outcomes, and implementing steps toward a preferred future + Developing confidence for the whole child + A strong understanding of self and developing autonomous learning and studying skills + Executive functioning, including organizational skills and self-advocacy + Family understanding and active engagement + Academic and school-based needs + Making learning “stick”
Does Educational Coaching teach core skills? Absolutely! Academic achievement is an important element in a student’s success. In addition to high quality pedagogical reading, writing, and math instruction, Educational Coaching uses specific coaching methods of encouragement, reinforcement, metacognition, and interleaved learning individualized for each student. Educational Coaching is rooted in multiple educational and psychological theoretical approaches to develop independence in core academic skills – and so much more!
