Managing Anxiety Requires Specific Tools
As a boutique tutoring organization, our main objective is to support students by offering a unique and customized learning opportunity. We recognize that some students experience anxiety and worry from time to time and it impacts learning. As part of our continued support for students, we have partnered with Laurel Crossley, children’s life coach, as your child will be equipped with personalized strategies to support their specific needs along with a renewed sense of confidence.
See Laurel on CHCH TV talking about Back to School Anxiety:
Not everyone fits in the box so we provide customized coaching sessions on topics relevant to the individual student. Topics to support academics can include but are not limited to, identifying career direction, assistance with focusing/attention situations, personal empowerment, etc.
Sessions will target:
- Topic exploration – what is the student looking to achieve during the coaching process
- Plan creation – creating a plan to best support the individual student
- Plan implementation – putting the action steps in place for the individual student to ensure his or her success
Contact Laurel Crossley for more information about one on one coaching.
