True Coaching will spend a full day at Cheltenham Secondary College to give students the opportunity to book a 15 minute one-on-one meeting.

  • Motivation
  • Preparing for tests

Quarterly Meetings2021-09-04T05:40:27+00:00

To ensure the presentations are tailored True Coaching will meet with a representative from the school (usually a VCE Coordinator) on a quarterly basis to discuss the specific needs of the cohort. The flexibility of the program means that we are able to adapt and modify the presentations and resources to ensure suitability for the students.

Tailored Presentations2021-09-04T05:40:04+00:00

The presentations and workshops presented at each school are tailored to the needs of the student cohort. True Coaching understands that each group of students has unique needs and has been learning in a unique environment. To the best of our ability we tailor the presentations to ensure synergy with the existing learning environment to ensure their are better received by both students and teachers.

Through workshops, consultation days and other resources True Coaching works with students, teachers and parents to develop proven study skills and strategies. The program is designed to help develop transferable and practical skills which helps students achieve their academic goals while minimising the stress associated with VCE.

Dianna was a fantastic support and guide for our Y12. Regular check-ins helped to maintain momentum and focus. She provided a variety of strategies and tools to improve planning and organisation for SACs and exams. Her flexibility was also helpful in managing day to day changes and pressures. Absolutely recommended!

“Very impressed with the recent workshop my daughter attended on how to prepare for exams, how to create a strategy for studying and coping with the stress during exam time.

My daughter enjoyed the workshop and found it invaluable. She has already started implementing some of what was taught.
