Get Teens Organised - one to one coaching
Individual Coaching is aimed at teens from 13 to 19 years old that need to improve their organisation skills. By refining their mental organisation skills (for example setting priorities) as well as their physical organisation skills (for example organising their subject notes) we tackle all aspects of organising their study so that they can focus on completing the actual assessments.
One to One Coaching
One to One Coaching follows the same content as the Coaching Program but is tailored to the needs of your teen. If they have special needs, or need to focus on particular areas of skill building, One to One Coaching may be a better option for your child. This coaching can also occur in your home where we can also tackle organising their personal study environment and the physical aspects of getting organised. Traditionally coaching is face to face but can also be just as successful over the phone. Our phone coaching is another option that may be utilised if there are issues with being in the same location.
Topics could include and will be tailored to the needs of your teen
- Goal setting
- Preparing for the term ahead
- Getting mentally organised
- Getting your physical environment organised
- Commitment to your actions
- Assessment planning
- Dealing with the hard stuff
- Building routine
- Tracking your progress
- Pulling it all together
- Term review and lessons learnt
- Your success stories
- What skills can we apply again
- Planning for next term
Organisational tool templates will also be provided during the coaching sessions and in soft copy for use after the sessions. They will include tool templates such as:
- Weekly Planners
- Term Planners
- Learning Contracts
- Learning Style Questionnaires
- Strengths Questionnaires
- Action Planning Sheets
- Assessment Planning Guidelines
- Editing Checklists
- Reflection Journals
- And other tools as needed by the students.
A success factor for this program is that we collaborate together to support your teens. As part of this program we outline the actions required to be completed each week. These actions are not additional to their school work; they are based around getting their school work done. I will be asking the students to collaborate with you and to ask for your support and help. It takes time to embed behavioural change, and the more support that is given the easier it is to put new practices into place. An email of the actions will be sent to you each week, along with access to the soft copy tools they will be given. This is a team effort – welcome to the team! Email and phone support is available throughout the term for you and your child and we aim to respond as soon as possible.
