I have been involved with both education and business for 20 years and offer coaching to help equip young people with the necessary skills, knowledge and confidence to perform at a higher level in exams at school. Success in exams enables more doors to open when leaving school.
My focus is upon transferring a range of skills to each young person which enables them to want to take responsibility for their own performance and for them to exceed their grade expectations. I do not coach specific curriculum subjects but rather I use course content from a range of subjects, both heavy text and linear, to provide context.
Help with memory and retention, time management, self analysis, revision and examination techniques, interview and presentation skills are amongst a wide variety of planned sessions that I am able to offer. We can tailor a programme together to cover those area where support is needed.
I am passionate about trying to enable all young people to have an equality of opportunity and to ensure that they exceed predicted exam grades. The emphasis is on the young person appreciating knowledge and wanting to achieve rather then being told to achieve. How often are young people expected to reach high level grades without actually knowing how to achieve them? I try to provide the tools to allow them to take ownership and to ensure that the 13/14 years spent at school provide the impetus for examination and career success linking school further/higher education and business.
Please do call me if you would like any further information or would like to chat through how I might be able to help. I would enjoy hearing from you.
