Stress from homework is extremely common in American families. It has become an accepted and expected part of daily life, and, all too often, a parent’s attempt to help will increase anxiety. Our clients have shared with us the struggle of trying to assist with homework or study, only to see their good intentions adding stress to the family dynamic. We understand how frustrated and helpless parents can feel, and we know that stress about school may not always be academic.
Leading Learners provides one-on-one coaches for students of all learning preferences, especially those ages 11-16. Our coaches are mobile and can meet student’s in their home, the library, a coffee shop, or our office and study room in south Fort Collins. Maria Gregori, the owner and director, is available to meet with parents and students for an interview, and she will recommend a great coach based on personality, learning preference, and subject focus.
How We Can Help
Success is possible, and asking questions is what smart people do! Everyone learns differently, and we match our students with a coach that best fits their learning preference for a personalized experience. Academic coaching gives students time with an education professional in an individual environment. Our expert coaches provide support beyond academics, stepping in as one-on-one mentors and role models, providing students with support, encouragement, and practice material.
Let us be the coach so you can be the cheerleaders! As parents ourselves, the founders of Leading Learners know how precious it is to have time at home with your family. By bringing in a coach to help, parents can relax, knowing their child’s academic future is in good hands, and look forward to dinner with their kids instead of fretting over homework or grades.
Not all students fail because they fall behind in class or can not complete their homework. We know many young people who are confident in their understanding of the material, but are not motivated to meet expectations set by the schools. Many students are incredibly intelligent, but due to overwhelming stress, both academic and social, are unable to perform to the best of their abilities. For these students, having an academic coach can remove the drudgery and frustration of unwanted expectations.
Leading Learners provides individualized coaching and tutoring services to help students sharpen their skills in most areas of study: covering all levels of Science and Mathematics, Reading, Writing, English, Spelling, Social Studies and Foreign Language Skills, including ESL. We also help with organization, study habits and test preparation, including the SAT, ACT, GED and TOEFL. We welcome students with special needs, learning disabilities, and developmental disorders.
