The Study Skills Manual is the centrepiece for the academic coaching process.  It is a comprehensive collection of executive skills and academic skills that are appropriate for middle school and high school students.  These skills can be considered the “best practices” of effective students.  The Study Skills Manual is a resource each student and his or her coach can use during sessions, and can also be utilized as he or she works independently.  It will also remain a valuable resource for students long after coaching sessions have ceased.

The Study Skills Manual is divided into two sections; Executive Skills and Academic Skills.  The Executive Skills section includes the topics Goal Setting, Organization, Time Management, and Planning while the Academic Skills section includes Reading Comprehension, Note taking, Writing, and Studying.  This manual will provide parents with an overview of the topics taught and practiced during in each session and in conjunction with the coach’s lesson notes, contribute to the transparency of the academic coaching process.

  • Thank you very much for providing such a very helpful facility for my daughter. She has benefited so much from the program, not only for her present situation but I think for life.
