Step 1: Read Coaching Agreement
The process of getting to know each student starts at their Blueprint session. This meeting takes place with the student (and their parents if under 18 years old); all parties work together as a team to build the student's Brightside Blueprint-- their starting point, by setting both short and long term goals, as well as discuss areas of strength and where improvements need to be made. Student suitability for coaching is also measured. This session is approximately one hour and the cost is $125.00. Payment is due by credit card at the time of registration.
Students can sign up for Academic Coaching sessions on a weekly basis. Students usually attend sessions at the same time, on the same day each week. Weekly appointment times are up to 45 mins and we do provide check-ins in-between sessions.
Students can also add-on Daily Planning session (15-minute online sessions for students to get set up and get started on their work plan for that day).
Students in Cegep can also add on the following:
Study Buddy: Students will receive support while completing their work by implementing the strategies and tools planned out and discussed in their weekly coaching sessions
Specialized Tutoring: Students work to improve their academic knowledge-base in math, science, history, reading comprehension & essay-writing. Learning occurs through differentiated methods rooted in the Brightside approach of executive function management (available to elementary, high school and Cegep students)
Payment Information: Payments for sessions occur on a bi-weekly basis on Mondays for the two weeks ahead -- three days prior to the payment date, you will receive an invoice for sessions scheduled over the next two weeks. On the due date, your payment will be processed through your preferred payment method (either automated credit card or e-transfer). If you have opted to pay by e-transfer, please submit your payment to firstname.lastname@example.org by the due date to avoid administration charges of $10.00 per late day.
Session costs are as follows:
