Academic Success Coaching for Higher Education

“Students feel heard and empowered by my questions. I see the mindset of students changing from ‘Who will fix this for me’ to that of ‘How do I fix this for myself.’ Students are seeing their own success in a more realistic light.” ~ PAULINE SAAVEDRA, ASSISTANT DEAN OF STUDIES, VASSAR COLLEGE

At JST Coaching & Training we believe that providing life coaching and ADHD coach training directly to your staff and faculty will open doors for student-directed learning while promoting a growth-mindset throughout your institution.

Take advantage of our many years of higher education success coaching skills training to benefit all students and improve support for at-risk students with learning challenges stemming from ADHD, executive functioning deficits or adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), as well as skills for coaching first- generation students and older students, including veterans, transitioning into post-secondary education.

Our coaching model focuses on improving self-determination skills in students, as detailed in “Becoming Self-Determined: Creating Thoughtful Learners in a Standards-Driven, Admissions-Frenzied Culture.” 2016 (Jodi Sleeper-Triplett, contributing author). Get your free excerpt here!
