Coaching for Your College Student

Your Insurance Policy-Coaching for Your College Student

When I was listening to the parent’s welcome program at Loyola University in Chicago this summer (where my son is a sophomore majoring in Political Science), the staff mentioned tuition insurance.  This insurance protects your investment if your child is ill or cannot continue his or her studies for the semester.  I began to think that is exactly what I do when I begin to work with a college student in my coaching practice.  To be a mentor and coach for a college student is a very rewarding experience.  We walk together through difficult classes, plan and set goals and priorities, and experience the general ups and downs that an academic year present.  It is challenging enough for a student without ADHD or learning difficulties but when you compound these challenges with new social experiences, different living arrangements and getting familiar to new surroundings, well, that can be a recipe for hard times.

Many very bright and capable students struggle with writing and producing written content. It is often due to their executive function deficits. These students are not lazy or just procrastinating. Helping to initiate the process and to organize the content and of the paper with the student has been a proven strategy to produce timely and effective results.

College coaching can be that insurance policy you are looking for to provide the extra support, encouragement and expertise your college student needs. I have successfully worked with students all over the country, whether by phone, Skype or Facetime, and I can assure you the remote communication does not lessen its effectiveness.  I will provide a 30- minute complimentary consultation for all students/parents to evaluate your unique set of needs.  Best of luck to all our university students for a successful and rewarding year!

For a complimentary phone consultation, please call Christine L. Robinson, M.Ed. Certified ADHD Coach/Educational Consultant at212.799.7777 or info@hallowellcenter.org Skype or Facetime sessions are also available.
