Academic Coaching

Academic coaching can help students reduce stress and strengthen the key pillars that lead to academic success.

Signet's coaching is based on our proprietary framework, The Five Academic Keys™. Our student-centered philosophy allows you to set and work towards goals that matter to you. Contact us for a free initial consultation.

Study habits, time management, basic organization: these are the skills that help students "do school well." But all too often, deficiencies in one or more of these schools leave students struggling: overwhelming by assignments, behind in class, and scoring poorly on tests. Our academic coaches help students overcome their difficulties by targeting areas for improvement, setting and achieving meaningful goals, and making school feel fun again.


School is about more than learning the subject material. We can help you address a wide range of academic issues.

The Signet Method



Your Signet coach will diagnose your challenges and set short- and long-term goals. Together you will dig deep to find what's holding you back — whether it's time management, stress, disorganization, or study habits. Whatever it is, we'll get to the bottom of it together.



Together you and your coach will create a practical plan to improve your study process and outcomes. For example, your plan could include shifting your attitude, changing your study environment, learning better note-taking skills, or a number of other possibilities. Your plan will include exactly what you need, nothing more, nothing less.



By your side, your coach will help you implement these changes, observe without judgement, and pay attention to your results. Together, you’ll set goals and assess your progress, making adjustments as needed to keep you moving forward. Over time, you’ll painlessly build habits for long-term academic success.

Signet Education not only helped guide me into a competitive college, but gave me the academic skill-set I needed in order to perform there at a really high level. The organizational tutors at Signet have given me the diverse skills to excel at studying, writing papers, and managing my time. I definitely wouldn't be able to perform at my current level without their guidance.”
