The Staying Ahead of the Game!, LLC Intensive College Break Program is a very accelerated version of our One-on-One Coaching Program. The program is designed for students who return home from school for breaks, or long weekends. We customize the number and length of sessions to meet the individual needs and time constraints of each student. Since there is no consistent reinforcement every few days like there is when we work with our middle school and high school students, it is truly up to the student to implement these newly learned strategies. As with our One-on-One Coaching Program, our Intensive College Break Program instills the importance of our four-phase system consisting of organization, time management, study skills, and impression management.

The first phase is organization. Our coaches work one-on-one with students to assess their current organizational skills and implement a personalized organizational system that works with their individual needs.

The second phase is time management. Coaches teach students how to properly use a planner, as well as how to effectively plan for homework, exams, projects, and papers. Each student enrolled in the Intensive College Break Program will receive help juggling academic and extra-curricular activities, along with advice on how to break up large assignments and test study sessions in order to ensure that their time is best utilized.

The third phase is study skills. Coaches teach students how to study for exams in all subject areas, as well as strategies for taking objective and subjective exams, memorization, reading from a textbook, note-taking, writing research papers, and more.

The fourth phase is impression management. Coaches teach students about networking and the importance of utilizing their resources such as teachers, counselors, advisors, parents, and peers to maximize their success. We promote the value of networking and becoming involved in clubs and activities. When in one-on-one sessions, coaches can help students with resume building and internship applications.
