Help your children so that their learning becomes more fun and easier for them.

Recent research both in New Zealand and overseas shows that encouraging your children to practice at home what they’re learning in the classroom has a hugely positive impact on their success at school. These can be simple tasks such as reading with them, revising letter sounds, adding and subtracting numbers, learning times tables, or coaching more complex skills to remember information for a test or organise homework. I work with families so they can more easily encourage their children to become keen and successful students.

I invite you to a series of Families as Coaches sessions face-to-face and on line which share the years of knowledge and skills I have gathered through study and through working with families and their children. It also includes my book How To Coach Your Children To Be Excellent Students.

The first core skills webinars are created so that I can support you to create a successful and fun coaching relationship with your child. Each session builds on the other so that you systematically learn the coaching skills you need to work effectively with your child. These webinars will have limited numbers because I want us to work closely together to create the change you want. My aim with these four core skills webinars is that you will work with your child using fun, effective, and interesting strategies to progress their learning. The price for the four core webinars includes the price for the Ebook How To Coach Your Children To Be Excellent Students which you can check out below.

Please register interest here: and I will be in contact with you.

A practical guide to help you help your children become excellent students!

Are there secrets to helping students learn that are only taught to trained teachers?  The answer is NO! There are many research papers and education texts describing effective ways to coach children, but they are often full of jargon and can be difficult to understand. The Families as Coaches manual ‘Coaching your children to be excellent students: A practical guide’ translates the research into ideas families can easily understand and use. It is full of smart strategies that have been proven to work over and over again.
