Educational Consulting Services
Learning, work, and life are going to get harder for your child without the right support—especially if they have a documented condition, like ADHD. If your child is not equipped, their options for education and work can diminish. That’s why our services focus on helping our clients improve their knowledge, skills, and abilities with key executive function skills: activation, focus, effort, emotion, memory, and taking action.
Our coaching program guides students to develop the skills and strategies needed to solve the problems they face in school and reach their goals.

All three kids made tremendous progress, and we are so grateful for their support as we navigated through the past two unpredictable years.”Christy S.Mom of 3

Today, my sons are confidently approaching college, law school, and a professional position at a Fortune 500 company, respectively, using the process Saga Educators taught them to employ.”Karen F.Mom of 3
“Saga Educators shared so many wise insights on learning strategies, college prep, testing, career choices based on interest areas/strengths/challenges, and so much more.

“I am extremely impressed with Saga Educators! They have very concise plans of action and steps that they outline in the first intake meeting. They gave periodic updates so we knew how our son was performing.

Honestly, it's been the best academic year he has had yet!”Amy M.Mom of 3

They gave us tools to help and shared incredible practical knowledge and skills. One meeting is worth its weight in gold!”Kelsay P.Mom of 4

Thank you!”David P.High School Student
Frequently Asked Questions
Our sessions focus on coaching the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to help children and adults succeed in their day-to-day lives. Each session is personalized to the strengths and needs of the individual. That’s why in our 30-minute and 60-minute sessions, we start off with a check-in on progress toward goals, then establish an agenda for our time together before getting tactical and working on specific tasks that our clients need help with. Sessions wrap up with a summary of what was discussed, learned, and action steps to take before the next session. All sessions are held online, via the world-class videoconferencing platform Zoom, so clients and coaches can connect from anywhere.
Our coaches stay in contact with our clients between sessions via email, text messages, and phone calls—all depending on their communication preferences. Communications might include an encouraging note, an accountability check-in to follow up on actionable tasks from the last session, or even an inquiry about what a client wants to focus on in the upcoming session. If a client has questions, they can contact the coach directly and we typically get back within 24 hours during weekdays. For school-based coaching clients, you can fill out a release form to allow the coach to communicate directly with the client’s school on their behalf. This could be an email to a teacher to get feedback or to help a client resolve an issue from an educational perspective. When appropriate, and upon request, members of our coaching team are available to attend school meetings as an advocate for clients.
Created by award-winning educators and based on leading research in cognitive science and learning—our coaching program helps students to learn how they learn and develop their executive function skills, learning strategies, and what we call the “healthy habits.” Most students struggle with things that have little to do with how much they know about a subject. The smart-but-scattered teen, for example, knows the Pythagorean Theorem cold, but forgets to complete or turn in the geometry homework. Sound familiar? While tutoring can help you master right triangles, it doesn’t help you with your time management, organization, or the like. That’s why our program works to teach crucial skills alongside providing support for academic content to help our clients develop the knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to succeed in school (and life!) So can our coaching program help you master geometry? Absolutely, and so much more!
Our coaches are part teacher, part mentor, and part trusted advisor. They’re basically superheroes without a cape. Our expert coaching team includes current teachers, retired educators, and individuals who have studied and worked extensively in the field of education. Each of our coaches has multiple specialty areas and can support clients in a variety of age groups. Based on the client profile that gets completed during the intake process, we’ll work to match you with a great coach who will fit your strengths (and schedule) so you can rest easy that you’re in good hands.
Can you help our family work with our child’s school so they can have a more successful school year?
Yes! We provide non-legal education advising to families to help them navigate situations and circumstances that arise at their child’s school. That might include providing input to help develop 504 plans and IEPs, helping a family to select the best schooling option for their child, or helping a student learn how to self-advocate in a difficult situation with a teacher. We also offer to attend meetings with your child’s school as your child’s advocate—including special education meetings—to help ensure everything is happening as it should and our clients are getting what they need from the school. We can also provide professional development to your child’s school to help them learn new strategies for working with students who have learning differences. With a signed release from the school we can also stay in contact and communicate with your child’s teachers on an ongoing basis.
Our coaching program is personalized to the needs of the client and we tailor our services on a session-by-session basis to be responsive to the needs of our clients. Typically, clients start off meeting more frequently and then, as they develop more independence with their skills, taper the frequency of meeting. Others have a specific goal in mind, like to improve on their college entrance exam scores, and they will meet in a very condensed manner multiple times over the course of a short period of time and then not necessarily need to meet again. Our goal overall is to be more like an aspirin than a vitamin—we want our clients to become more self-reliant with the skills we teach them so they can thrive on their own. But we’ll always be here to help when they need it. So, once a maintenance frequency of coaching is reached, clients schedule on an as needed basis.
