Academic Life/Executive Function Skills Coaching
Students struggle to manage their commitments effectively. Classes, study, homework, clubs, sports and part-time work compete for their time and attention. We’re amazed by how much students are juggling.
Many competitive universities and programs review applications “holistically”, which means that they ask students to report on and write about their extracurricular activities in addition to their grades. However, grades still remain the most important factor in university admissions, so it’s crucial for students to prioritize their academics and learn how to study more effectively and use their time more efficiently.
One-to-one Academic Life Coaching helps students get better at:
- Executive Function Skills
- Study Skills & Test-Taking
- Time Management
- Organizational Skills and Routines
- Independent Problem Solving
- Planning & Taking Action
- Balancing School and Extracurricular Activities
Academic Life Coaching is effective for all motivated students, starting in middle school, through high school, and university.
Academic Life Coaching is different from subject tutoring. Tutoring provides assistance in mastering a particular subject. Academic Life Coaching is about learning to learn effectively. With their coach students learn study skills, time management skills and organizational skills to become better, more efficient, more effective, and more self-aware learners with new habits and the ability to problem-solve independently.

University Planning and Application Support
We help students make the most of their high school years and prepare to apply to colleges and universities in Canada, the US, and the UK. With our assistance, students choose high school courses, explore extracurricular and summer opportunities, and learn about universities and programs where they will thrive and reach their full potential.
To prepare students to put their best foot forward in their applications, we offer personality, aptitude, and interests assessments. This helps to increase their self-awareness so that they can explore potential university majors and careers that will interest them. We then guide them through the process of finding and applying to universities that offer the best academic, social, and financial fit.
The high school and university years are important for exploration, learning, and growth. They are also an important investment in the future. Our professional and supportive one-to-one counseling helps to make these years and the transition from high school to university positive and enjoyable for the whole family.
We know that students have busy lives. Therefore, we deliver our counseling and coaching services by virtual conferencing, email and telephone to fit student schedules – regardless of time zone.
