In education students need support. They are expected to take several classes at once and be self-disciplined as an adolescent to stay on task and complete all of the required work. Up until now it is typical for a parent to attempt to help manage their child’s work. Although a great concept, it does not always work due to life demands and the strain it puts on a parent/child relationship. Consistently checking in, monitoring progress in each course, helping answer questions and motivating a child is very challenging for any adult not in the educational field let alone a parent. Teenagers often respond better to a nonparental adult which is where a Learning Coach comes in. They take over the role of monitor by helping to manage your child’s education.
