This page is for home-school families, charter school students, parents and educators. As a vendor for Charter schools and service provider for private home school Christian families, this page gives parents more information on my high school personal development and social emotional learning called the GO PROGRAM which runs for 15 weeks during the spring and fall semesters. Although this program is advertised for high school, it is also suited for ages from 13 yrs.

This coaching program improves self awareness and helps students with motivation, confidence, organization, procrastination, time management, relationships, communication, stress, anxiety, mindsets, emotional regulation and more.

I care deeply about young people thriving in life. I also value parents feedback when I am working with your students. Therefore, I like to keep in contact and communicate with parents while students take this course. The students` success depends on student engagement AND parent support.

I love to encourage parents in their home education journey. I have been there. Yes, I home educated our three young adult sons all the way through high school until college. 

 

Let`s have a heart to heart. You CAN do this! 

This is not a “typical zoom” high school "class." It’s a revolutionary program that will change your students` thinking. I invite your students to get out of their comfort zone, think deeper-bigger-harder-smarter and join me on this journey to realize dreams and get excited about possibilities!

Allow me to be your teen`s personal mentor for 15 weeks. I walk with my students every step of the way with weekly accountability, challenging their mindsets and re-framing perspectives.

 

Many parents focus on grades alone which causes much stress and anxiety. My focus is on intrinsic growth, social and emotional learning that affects actions and outcomes (grades).

The Main Goal of this class is to support students to be confident self-driven learners who have greater self-awareness, take more ownership of their lives, and improve self-motivation and executive function skills. 

As a coach, I support students to get organized and improve their executive function and emotional intelligence. It is known that students with higher EQ do better academically and gain higher grades & achievement test scores. MY coaching helps students with emotional regulation – the very skills that improve EQ, improve their academic skills. Emotional intelligence is part of their entire make-up. You cannot separate academic success from emotional development. Their thought patterns, emotions, fears and concerns affect learning.

 

Coaching provides strategies for better executive functions with greater intentional action.

What makes this course unique?

This program is unique as I value a three way partnership (coach-parent-student) as connection and communication with parents is key which creates more meaningful, measurable results.

It`s about freedom learning and inner growth. It`s not about "school."

 

EXTRA VALUE: I meet up with parents for two complementary group sessions to discuss progress, and how parents can support their students to take ownership and be more self motivated in home education. Parents receive extra support with coaching tools, resources, free videos, eBooks and lots of support material from my personal resource library!!

In addition, I send out weekly parent emails with links to videos and material students are learning. These resources help parents engage in more conversations with their teens which improves connection and family relationships.

ABOUT THE COURSE:

This course is equivalent to 70 elective credit hours if families require credits for transcripts. Students receive a certificate of completion.

 

NOTE: The GO PROGRAM can be tailor made for students who prefer to do a shorter program.

What are the prerequisites?

The only prerequisites is to come excited, expectant and eager to learn. If your students are not excited, this class should get them engaged in the first session as they change perspectives on education. This course is suited for students from 13-18 yrs. 

 

online group sessions

Weekly sessions take place online on the zoom platform suitable for 6-10 students and includes 15 integrated, discussion-based modules between 75 and 90 minutes each. Coaching sessions are highly engaging as students interact and discuss with fellow students. 

Students engage with each other in pairs in the zoom break-out rooms where they learn how to coach one another, asking questions from the workbook. They improve communication and empathy skills which helps them build relationships as they improve listening skills.

What If my teen hates online classes?

This is not a typical online class because this is NOT school! The student follows along with the modules in a hard copy workbook (journal) and students engage with one another in live online zoom sessions using a variety of multi-sensory tools.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successfully completing this course, the student should be able to do the following:

  1. Demonstrate proficiency in course material, such as developing a growth mindset, overcoming obstacles, learning from failure.

  2. Improve communication skills as students learn listening and empathy skills.

  3. Discover how they best learn and interact with their environment (learning styles, motivational styles)

  4. Develop better study and life habits (organization, time management, routines, health)

  5. Set up smart goals and well-designed actions (planning, executive functions)

  6. Understand how to control emotions and thought patterns (emotional regulation, mindsets)

  7. Use strategies to improve motivation and engage in learning with less procrastination 

  8. Develop greater self-awareness: interests, strengths, values, skills, personality

  9. Discover a clearer purpose with more confidence and clarity for the future

  10. Apply coaching tools and learning to career and life decisions

Coaching Builds Confidence

If your students sign up for these coaching modules and sessions, they will gain more confidence. They will get more in touch with who they are and what they want, which creates confidence, motivation, action, and results. When they come up with their own ideas and actions and get measurable results, they realize their capabilities (ownership) and become more self-driven and motivated. The power of "BUY IN" is the priceless value coaching offers.  

 

Modules

The course contains 15 modules presented over 15 weeks in the fall and spring and 8 modules presented over 8 weeks in the summer. Contact me to view the modules and to watch a comprehensive video of how the classes work. 

 

Course Materials

This course comes with a hard copy workbook (journal) shipped to the student`s address in the United States and sessions include video clips, interactive mind maps, and engaging class discussions using multi-sensory strategies. Student workbooks are their journals and an essential learning tool for this course. All material is posted on google classroom.

 

Note: Non-charter school private christian home-school families receive workbooks from a Christian world view.

 

Life Application

The course consists of graded weekly life application activities (assignments) to consolidate  learning. Ongoing weekly feedback on google classroom support students with accountability to keep them on track. Students need to have a private Gmail account.

 

Hands On experience

This course is very hands-on as students practice the skills in every day life outside of the sessions. Personal learning sets students up for future success in the real world as they become more self-driven. Life application (action taken) through self-awareness in this course is key to success. 

How can I get a discount for my student?

For private home-school families (non-Charter school families), parents who organize and set up their own class of 8 students will receive 50% discount for their student. This offer is limited while class spaces are available. Contact me for more details. 

When do classes start?

SPRING and Fall Semesters

Classes are 75-90 minutes long to give students enough time for discussions and peer interaction. Evening classes and different times can be arranged. I work with families to find the best availability.

 

Mondays: 10:30 am – 12:00 pm PST

Tuesdays: 2:30 pm – 4:00 pm PST

SUMMER:

I work with parents with regards to dates over the summer as vacation dates vary in different states. The months range between June and August for 8 weeks. If 8 weeks is too long, no problem - I tailor make the modules to suite the group and parents can set up shorter weeks.

 

How can I find out more?

zoom Q&A sessions are scheduled throughout the year. Please contact me to find out when the next session is scheduled.

"Grading"

First off, the purpose of grading is to encourage student feedback so the coach can determine how students are doing in the class. Students are encouraged not to focus on the "grading" but to focus on the learning - what they are learning about themselves. The main purpose of grading is feedback and grades for credits on transcripts if needed. Why not reward hard earned work and effort? This class is about learning to be self-driven, not about grades!
