“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

“I coordinate an Academic Coaching program in my college. I wanted to be trained in my field to be a better coach. The appreciated the various styles of facilitators and the ADHD component and the strengths-based coaching part. I also liked it being online and hearing other students in the class experiences about coaching.”

LeNelle Patrick, Coordinator of Academic Coaching – NC State University

“Jodi’s ability to construct a complete intensive 3-day training with readable, useable materials is amazing. The training resonated with the needs I have experienced in my 35 years of special education in K-12 and higher education. The use of ‘do-able’ methodology coupled with periods of participation were most satisfying. I hunger for more!”
