Coaching FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

When should we start?

It is always best to get started at the beginning of the semester. Ideally, we like to have a meeting before classes start. However, we do work with students that want to start up in the middle of a semester or school year.

Who are are the coaches?

Our coaches come from all educational backgrounds. They are teachers, psychologists, social workers, and counselors. They are trained at State Street Education and receive additional continuing professional development.

What is coaching?

Our coaches work with students so that they are able to increase self-awareness, become more productive learners, and work more efficiently. We do not encourage students to work more, we find ways for them to be more effective in an academic setting. Each student receives a coaching approach that is tailored to their needs and customized for them to become optimal students.

How do we meet?

Meetings happen virtually. Generally, a student and coach will have 1 weekly meeting at a consistent day and time.

What are the first steps?

The first thing to do is to set up a consultation with one of our Directors.

What happens in a consultation?

During a consultation meeting, we seek to accomplish two objectives. First, we give the parent and student more information about the program. Next, we gather information about the student to make sure that they are the right fit for our program and to understand how we can best address their needs. This typically takes an hour and happens virtually.
