How CollegeCore Coaching works:

The process begins with a complimentary 15-20 minute inquiry call with Rebecca. Call to set up that inquiry session (978) 287-0810 or (978) 255-1817. This is a brief discussion to answer questions about the program. This will help Rebecca to determine whether the CollegeCore coaching approach is appropriate for the student.

Following this discussion, a 90 minute meeting is scheduled to:

  • get background information,
  • identify personal strengths,
  • establish personal objectives, deadlines (if imposed) for improvement, and
  • to determine best approaches.  Cost: $325.00

An action plan and frequency of coaching sessions is determined based on that meeting. The goal is to:

  • identify the best starting point(s),
  • select a couple small steps easy to implement consistently to
  • yield some early and notable results; and
  • have these new routines become habits.

Minor adjustments are made along the way. For some, the compound effect will work best. While for others a multi-target approach is better. The process is customized to the student and his/her needs.

Coaching sessions are $150/hour, $75/30 minutes. First of all, Rebecca will determine with the student the duration and frequency of sessions (1-3x a week.)  If desired, a spouse, partner or co-founder may also be involved. Progress is addressed at each session. As the gains become more consistent and the student more independent, the coaching sessions wind down. Check-in sessions are monthly or bi-monthly, then every six months or as needed.
