Academic, Career & Life Planning and Parent Consultation


Academic Tutoring, College, Career & Life Readiness

Academic tutoring, college, career, and life planning refers to a holistic approach that helps individuals develop a strategic and thoughtful path for their educational, career, and personal lives. It involves setting goals, making informed decisions, and taking actions to achieve success and fulfillment in these areas. 

College, career, and life readiness refers to the skills and knowledge individuals need to succeed in their future aspirations, whether it be in higher education, the workforce, or everyday life. It includes a range of competencies such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and self-management. 

Academic counseling/coaching/tutoring: is a form of personalized support that helps students improve their academic performance, develop effective study skills, and achieve their educational goals. It involves working with a coach to identify areas of strength and weakness, set goals, and develop a plan to achieve those goals.

Academic coaches provide guidance, motivation, and accountability to help students stay on track and overcome any obstacles they may encounter during their academic journey. At CYC, we are dedicated to helping neurodiverse students excel academically and reach their full potential.
