Academic coaching is for students k-12. We realized that many children who struggle with issues are also struggling in school. Due to the fact that many hours are spent at school campus or home school situation, their feelings are also related to their education. A student who is struggling with anxiety may also struggle with how to manage their daily habits and demands of schoolwork. So also, a student who is struggling to keep up with the daily demands of school may become anxious or depressed. A tutor who focuses on school-subject matter, without understanding the dynamics of the student and how they apply themselves will have limited success.
At Testimony life, academic coaches get to know the student and family, and the way the student organizes their life and study habits. The academic coach takes over communication from the parent to the teacher and tracks missing, current, and future assignments. Our main goal is to remove the struggle from the parents and have the student take responsibility for their studies and schooling. This enables the student to take responsibility, the parents to be parents, and the family to be a family.
