The Learning Edge

Academic Assessment and Coaching for Collegiate Success

                    Located in Western Massachusetts

 

Whether the goal is for an Associates, Bachelors, or Graduate degree, going to college is a significant investment in time, energy, and money.  For success, it is essential to assess your strengths and challenges and then build skills and upgrade tools in time management and planning, reading, notetaking, writing essays, and taking exams.  Because they are skills that people aren’t born with, the most effective way to learn them is to practice them with a coach.

 

Unfortunately, many colleges are not set up to provide the kind of teaching and coaching that many students need in order to feel confident in their coursework and secure that they have the skills to succeed.  That’s where the Learning Edge comes in.  For over 20 years, I have worked with students, to build important skills around time management and study strategies that are essential for their success in college.  My goal is to help the student internalize the skills and perspectives through coaching to their strengths while working with the challenges in their learning profile. 

 

An initial assessment and intake session will help us identify strengths and challenges while exploring their past educational experiences, present skills, and future goals.  A personalized plan will be developed to focus on the specific needs for each student.  We can then set up weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or even short check-in sessions to support the development of the skills and study strategies.
