How is my student matched with a coach?

Each coach in our One-on-One Program has been hand selected by the founder of the company for his/her dynamic personality and academic qualifications. Based upon notes from our initial evaluation session, students are matched with a coach we think would be ideal. If a client opts out of a formal evaluation session, we match coaches based upon information we have from the new client paperwork. On a rare occasion, in spite of our best efforts, a coach may feel that a student is not getting the most from our program and, depending upon the situation, we may swap coaches.

How long will it take my student to complete the One-on-One Coaching Program? What happens when the curriculum is complete?

Typically, our coaches work with students for an entire semester. Coaches are able to tailor the program to fit the needs of each individual. Based on the student’s needs, it may take more or less time to cover and master each of the four phases. After entry curriculum is completed and good practices are taught, our coaches are happy to continue working with a student and move into the maintenance phase of the program.

Where are the coaching sessions held?

We prefer to meet with students in the home, where they will be completing the majority of their work. Arrangements may be made to work with students in school or at other locations on a case by case basis.

How often will my student meet with his/her coach?

The Staying Ahead of the Game!, LLC One-on-One Coaching Program is designed to last about the length of a semester with twice weekly meetings lasting 60-90 minutes each.

Will the coach assist with my student’s day-to-day homework assignments?

Our coaches generally concentrate on teaching the skill sets needed for long term success, rather than working on a subject-by-subject basis. However, we often use students’ actual class assignments and homework to demonstrate these teachings, we are happy to address questions about specific assignments (within the comfort zone of the coach) and basic subject matter. If a student needs intense academic help beyond what we can provide, we will be happy to recommend an outside subject tutor to focus on that specific area.

What is the cost of the One-on-One Program?

All billing is done on an hourly basis. Rates range from $80 to $160 an hour, most of our tutor rates are in the $90 - $100 range.

What if my student’s schedule is too busy for regular coaching?

Parents are often concerned that students who already have a full schedule of homework, sports and other extracurricular activities may not have time for additional work with a coach. Coaches use daily school assignments as a framework for addressing time management and study skills, which helps the student learn to use his or her time more effectively and reduces the total amount of time spent completing school tasks. We work around your student's schedule when making coaching appointments, and for your convenience, we have a number of weekend and late evening time slots.

Are there long term obligations involved with the One-on-One Program?

Appointments canceled less than 24 hours in advance will incur a cancellation fee equal to one hour of your coach’s time. There are no long term commitments associated with our One-on-One Coaching Program.
