Homework Coaching

What is TLC's Homework Coaching?

The goal of Homework Coaching is to teach your child to become a successful student by learning to plan assignments, organize materials, manage time effectively and complete their homework. Motivation then increases naturally with consistent academic success.

When should my child use a TLC Homework Coach?

Use a TLC Homework Coach when you or your child is frustrated with homework due to problems with assignment planning and organizing or other study skills including test-taking strategies and homework monitoring.

Parents are very happy with TLC because we significantly reduce frustration while keeping students moving in the right direction preparing today for success tomorrow.

What if the problem is not study skills?

If your child needs help in a specific academic area, then that must be dealt with first. For example, no amount of help with how to study for a history test will help a student who first needs to work on improving reading fluency (accuracy plus speed) or reading comprehension.

What is my child's REAL problem, if not study skills?

Not sure if your child’s REAL problem is an underlying issue such as reading, attention, or memory rather than “simply” study skills? We can help make that determination through TLC’s child-friendly evaluation process.

Let us know what you need, and we can help. Not sure what you need? We have helped MANY frustrated parents answer that question too!

Test Anxiety Counseling

Does your child find test-taking anxiety inducing? Do their scores not reflect their true potential? Developed by Dr. Joe Utay, our expert staff can help anyone significantly reduce their testing anxiety in as little as 4 one-hour sessions.
