Your Guide to College
Students at NWCS have the ability to comprehend the subject matter, but struggle with the executive functioning tasks needed in college such as time management, prioritizing assignments, completing assignments, balancing the expectations of different professors, and remembering due dates. The ability to organize and structure learning can be achieved through educational coaching.
Our Education Coaching team includes educational professionals with strong backgrounds and training in general and special education. Our approach to educational coaching focuses on a scaffolding support. Initially, a student's educational coach provides the level of support the student needs to organize their school work and study habits. As the semester progresses, the support from the educational coach is slowly titrated down, as the student begins to internalize the skills they are learning through educational coaching. The goal of educational coaching is to teach the necessary skills for students to become proficient self-managers of their own education.
