Coaching is a process that takes time and commitment. Typically, our students are best prepared for independence after 8-12 months of consistent coaching.
When you sign up for online coaching, you'll be starting a transformative process. Your coach will work toward forging a trusting alliance with your child as they begin to work on your child's goals. The coaching relationship forms a solid foundation for honest reflection and an environment where students feel truly supported as they take on new challenges. Coaching occurs in 4-week auto-renewal cycles until your child has achieved their objectives. Most students are prepared for fading from coaching support in 8-12 months of consistent work with their coach.
How much does Beyond BookSmart cost? Pricing is $189/week for clients who prepay for 24 weeks. For clients who are billed in 4-week auto-renewal cycles, the cost is $199 per week. Your student receives 1:1 online personalized coaching with a highly trained coach matched to their needs in weekly 60-minute sessions. This weekly cost not only includes your child’s 1:1 sessions but also additional support for you, too. After all, caregivers play a critical role in the Executive Function improvement journey. You'll connect with your coach to share your child’s achievements, opportunities for growth, and explore ways you can best support the work that’s ahead.
All of our coaches must have a master's level degree in education or a related field, or equivalent, and have experience working successfully 1:1 with students or adults. They all must go through a rigorous vetting and training process and pass our comprehensive exam in order to be an Executive Function coach with Beyond BookSmart. Coaches also receive ongoing mentorship on a regular basis and receive ongoing professional development through Beyond BookSmart’s Professional Development Team.
Our Coaching Readiness quiz will help you learn if coaching could be a good fit for your child.
Developing Executive Function skills is a process that takes time and consistency, much the same as any ability you may want to improve. Can you imagine, for example, achieving a goal of playing the piano or running a marathon without committing to ongoing practice? It's not likely that you'd see the improvements you desire if you worked toward these goals only when you felt like it. Similarly, with Executive Function coaching, we see the best outcomes when clients mindfully set aside a consistent time each week to work with their coach 1:1. (You can think of it as having a personal trainer for your brain!) Our program is a good fit for parents who understand that their child's coaching journey is oftentimes the better part of a year until the student can independently and consistently apply their personal toolkit of strategies.
