How I can help your student(s):
Does your student stress about grades?
Does your student know their core motivations?
Does your student lack confidence?
Are you stressed your student is getting in their own way?
Are they frustrated with their relationships (parent/teen, teacher/student, coach/player, or with friends)?
Are you tired of nagging your student about school or grades?
Do they want to improve in areas of their life, but aren't sure how to do it?
Picture your student(s):
Understanding their core motivation and how to use it to their advantage
Increasing their self-awareness, leading to increased confidence in all areas of their life
Making choices with positive intention and a sense of purpose
Using their time more efficiently and effectively
Being less stressed about their academics and more excited about the learning process
Developing a growth mindset

7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens
"As my awareness increases, my control over my own being increases." - Will Schutz
I've spent the last 15 years helping students succeed in various ways, from the development of life skills through implementation of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens and Coach Wooden's Pyramid of Success, to academic intervention and achievement.
One constant I witnessed over that time and something I believe - all students want to become the best version of themselves - the challenge is many don't yet know their motivations, what matters to them most, and their unique gifts/strengths.
My mission is to help teens and young adults realize their inner potential through an increase in self-awareness so they can share their unique gifts and talents with the world in purposeful and intentional ways.
I create a safe and non-judgmental space for students to explore areas such as: understanding their core motivations; what matters to them; and how assumptions and limiting beliefs affect the decisions they make. The result is an increase in their confidence and mindset which positively impacts their academics, relationships, and life.
Working with students, teachers and my own coaches, I've learned and seen, first hand, the tremendous impact an increase in self-awareness can have on someone's life. I've also seen how "walking" through life without intention and sense of purpose can impede someone's academics, career and relationships.
Some personal insights to my background and passions:
Youngest of 4 siblings and first to graduate from a 4 year college (full scholarship-basketball)
I'm a morning person - up early (4:30-5am) to start the day with a workout
Continuous learner and huge fan of all things motivational...hope, leadership and human potential
Animal lover, sports fanatic and artist
I would welcome an opportunity to explore the Academic Life Coaching program with you and your student.
