College Transition Coaching
College Transition Coaching (CTC) is a program designed for college freshman to help them cope with the academic and social challenges inherent in transitioning to this next phase of their lives.
CTC will consist of a scheduled series of weekly, bi-monthly, or monthly phone/Skype calls between me and your college student. In the same way that Bound4College alleviated the stress and strain between you and your student by providing them with caring, expert coaching to accomplish the college application process, CTC will provide your student with an opportunity to work through their first year challenges with an objective, expert, compassionate consultant. My experience as a mother of three, a psychotherapist and a college counselor, has taught me that students either obsessively call home with every little concern or they don’t call at all leaving parents wondering where they are and how they’re doing.
College Transition Coaching will provide college freshman with some of the following tools:
Time management and other executive functioning skills
Deciding how many credits to take each semester
When to add and drop classes
How to know when to seek tutoring
Negotiating successful relationships with professors, administrators, teaching assistants, resident advisors
Making wise choices in the face of peer pressure
Finding the right social group
Whether to rush for a sorority/fraternity
What clubs to join and when to join them?
The primary goal of College Transition Coaching is to ensure that your student will successfully and appropriately acclimate to college life and not suffer from overwhelm, anxiety, depression, substance abuse and social isolation.D
