fall 2021 new coaching program!

​The purpose of this coaching program is to enable high school students, in bringing out their best and seeing themselves as capable, confident and creative.


High school students often struggle with a clear understanding of who they are and their capabilities, affecting their confidence and autonomy, leaving them frustrated and anxious.


The culture and worldly values negatively affect how young people perceive themselves, and influencing their choices and actions which affect their academics and success.


​Renewing our minds and our thought patterns enables us to think well in order to live well.



Students who make choices in alignment with their own values experience less frustration.

“If you know who you are, no one can convince you to be who you are not.”

Self-concept relates to how students perceive their behavior, abilities and unique characteristics.

With a clear truthful self-concept, young people thrive in their responsibilities, home education, relationships, and life purpose. 


Essentials in this program:

  • Group interaction

  • Collaboration

  • Engagement


Students motivate and inspire one another through coaching and fun activities which improves confidence and positivity.


This coaching program improves self-concept as students connect in a comfortable space, and gain confidence and motivation for action as they realize their capabilities.


Students want 3 things:

  • Choice

  • Control

  • Credibility

Students are invited to share ideas around relevant topics meaningful to their lives so they experience more choice, control and credibility.


This collaboration creates:

  • Trust

  • Ownership

  • Greater buy-in

  • Excitement


This program also supports students in:

  • Goal setting

  • Weekly actions

  • Accountability

Benefits include greater motivation, executive function skills, group accountability, social connection, improved communication, better habits/routines, more inspired-self-directed learning, authentic self-concept, supportive community.


Potential Topics: (students decide on topics)

  • Mastering Mindsets (thought patterns, emotions)

  • Personal Perceptions (who am I, strengths, abilities, traits)

  • Systematic Strategies (how to get organized with school & responsibilities)

  • Healthy Habits (spiritual-physical-mental health, anxiety, stress, exercise, nutrition, sleep, media)

  • Real Relationships (communication, friends, influences) 

  • Productive Projects (meaningful projects, business ideas, e-portfolios, websites)

  • Success Skills (skills needed for responsibility & independence)

If your high school student is interested in joining a supportive group to develop self awareness; view themselves in a positive light, get more organized & motivated; and improve confidence, communication and connection, then this is the class!

If these above times do not work for your student, contact me as I work with families in setting up classes at more convenient times.

What makes this class unique?

 Students share ideas on coaching topics. I`m excited to see their creativity and resourcefulness!


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


EXTRA VALUE: I meet up with parents for one complementary group call to discuss progress, and student support for more autonomy and self motivation in home education. Parents receive coaching tools, resources, free videos, eBooks and support material!

Where do the classes take place?

On zoom for 10 weeks. I use annotations, whiteboards, mind-maps, and other multi sensory tools to keep students engaged online. The hour will fly by!

This includes:

  • Unlimited weekly student support via email or other platform

  • One 30-minute individual session for extra support to help students stay on track
