National and International schools in India and abroad, are requesting to conduct working sessions. 2-3 hours workshop has been designed for class room sessions, in which only 30-40 people are allowed to take part in a session at a time.

E-Coaching

E-Coaching is designed in a way that, videos with basic content are provided to students and advised to watch the videos and then the Coach talks to them through video calls (Skype or whatsapp) for further implementation of different phases of 5E Model( Analysis, Assignment, Assessment , Alter and Achieve). This is suggested to students who are not able to reach physically, especially for foreign students.

AnalysProblems vary from student to student. If the student is aware about his/her problem, the problem is half solved. This forms the first phase of Coaching includes –Identifying problems in the student’s academic life which are bothering them and hampering the progress of marks and grades. Different questionnaires are administered to understand the ground level problems of students and then analyses data using qualitative and quantitative methods to figure out student’s areas of strengths and weaknesses and to find out his/her own areas where there is a scope for improvement. Student analysis is the first phase in coaching, based on which selective working sessions are suggested.

AssignmentsAnalysis of student gives an overall understanding about his/her Academic life. After discussion with student and parents, the Coach selects the working sessions which has content to be taught and mini-assignments. These assignments are simplified tasks of few minutes which would become part of their life as a daily routine. Assignments are unique in nature, which are entirely different from school homework and especially they are pen & paper less tasks. Majority of these tasks can be completed by students on their own at school itself.

AssessmentEvery student’s performance and progress is recorded by the Coach Team. Depending up on the assignment, student gets phone calls after the school hours to record and monitor the improvement either on a daily basis or weekly basis.

Since every person is different, outcomes also differ for the same assignment. After assessment of tasks for a month, the Coach identifies what are the things to be worked out and gives expected results in terms of hurdles which are hampering the growth. According to the student’s capacity and capability, the Coach alters the assignments till they achieve their objective.

AchieveMany students either don’t focus on their academic life or have too many over ambitious academic goals that spoil their academic life happiness. Students are advised to take up one or two tasks at a time and try to implement them in their daily life and inculcate academic habits as their part of life. At the end of this process, students get habituated to improving their academic skills. After becoming successful at one habit, student is given free hand to select another academic habit and inculcate it in his/her life. If they understand the process behind acquiring a habit two or three times, then they will be in a position to bring positive changes in their life at any point of life. As an Academic Habit Coach, Mohan Palani aims at making students to be self-competent in programming and reprogramming their brains according to their goals.
