At Yellow Parachute Learning Partners, the role of tutor has always been referred to as a “Learning Coach.” This has been the case for over 20 years. We’ve been using the term “Coach” since waaayyyy before it was cool and became the buzz word so often used today.

The philosophy behind using the term “Learning Coach” goes back to my days as a swim-instructor. As a trained swim coach and instructor, I would watch what my students were doing as they swam front and back crawl, practiced butterfly, or glided through the water doing breaststroke. Then I would think “how do I get you (my swim students) to understand the next steps in what I want you to do to improve your stroke, and how do I help you get there?” The act of reflecting on what these swimmers needed from me in order to be successful has framed my work at Yellow Parachute Learning Partners. Voila, “Learning Coach” was born!

One of the ways Yellow Parachute Learning Partners sets ourselves apart is the depth breadth of coaching services we offer, as we teach not just how to learn but what to learn. Not only do we offer traditional tutoring services, but we also offer ADHD coaching and life coaching.

Our Yellow Parachute Learning Coaches provide highly personalized “traditional” services for students in grades K-12 and college. We have tutors who specialize in all subjects and coaches who teach generalized skills such as time management, prioritizing, and study skills.  For more information or to tell us your vision of what you need, click here. Yellow Parachute Learning Coaches can also help with ACT, SAT and Advanced Placement Test Prep.

And the less traditional? Quantum Jump, Yellow Parachute’s ADHD coaching service, helps clients unpack feelings of frustration, being stuck or unworthy, so they can see themselves as they really are: capable, worthy, and whole. Once we begin the healing process, clients learn tools and steps to use their strengths and gifts to live intentionally and meaningfully. At Quantum Jump, our coaches are specifically trained to understand how ADHD symptoms become obstacles to learning and how to best address them.

Similar to the ADHD coaching, our Life Coaches help their clients remove obstacles which so often get in the way of what people want to do. Our life coaching clients range in age from 8 to 80, and can help with all facets of your life.

Regardless of the type of coach, the benefits are similar across the board. Yellow Parachute Coaches provide consistency and accountability. They’ll help you focus on your goal(s) and will cheer for your wins. They’ll make sure you keep moving towards progress on your vision of how you want to be successful.
