As a Learning Coach, your level of engagement with your child’s at-home learning is a vital part of their growth and development. Studies show that parental involvement with children’s learning helps ensure student success, especially in reading and math.
Learning Coach involvement also provides students with social and emotional support. By remaining engaged and available for your child throughout their learning, they can build the confidence to overcome challenges and develop can-do attitudes that will serve them now and in the future.
For online students, Learning Coaches carry out many of the same tasks they would for students in a traditional school, but the at-home environment changes how some of these tasks are carried out.
- Help set up a learning space that will eliminate distractions and promote focus.
- Regularly monitor student attendance, participation, and comprehension.
- Set time aside for daily check-ins.
Learning Coaches also work closely with teachers to stay up to date and make any accommodations necessary for optimal student learning.
