Curious about working with an academic life coach? Don’t want to wait for an opening in my practice? Want a coach trained in my signature Anti-Boring Approach to Powerful Studying tools? You’re in the right place!
Every year I proudly refer the coaches who are currently completing my Anti-Boring Approach™ Coach mentoring program. Check out this document for a list of the current cohort, most of whom have immediate openings and introductory rates. A bonus of working with one of these coaches is that I will be mentoring them as they work with your family!
I’m also thrilled to introduce you to the fabulous educators who have chosen to become officially certified Anti-Boring Approach™ Coaches. Check them out below!
These folks have two important qualifications: (1) They have completed my mentoring program and are committed to teaching the Anti-Boring Approach™ tools as a part of their academic coaching services, and (2) they continue to cultivate their own unique toolkit of coaching resources, what I affectionately call their “special sauce.” Note: Those listed as Associate Coach are still working towards their first 50-hours incorporating the Anti-Boring Approach tools into their coaching services; all others are have completed their hours and are fully certified.
I am proud to feature these talented, unique and, well… anti-boring! … coaches on my website. You will be in good hands.
I know how painful it can be to feel like a failure at school and want to quit. I struggled with motivation and procrastination for most of my school life.
It is my mission, to make sure no student ever feels like school doesn’t get them. I work with students in grades 6th and higher, who struggle with academic confidence and motivation. I help you survive school with less stress by helping you create concrete goals, tackle procrastination and learn creative study skills. As I always say, “If you don’t fit the system, you make your own!”
As a former counselor, I have a passion for cultivating students' confidence, empowerment and ease as they build academic success and lasting new habits. In my program we think beyond this school year, growing mindsets and tools that will serve students as they become independent, thriving adults.
I help students get good grades while spending as little time as possible. More importantly, to ensure students sustain their success and carry it through their entire school career and life, I work with them on essential life skills such as managing stress, building resilience, harnessing self-motivation, managing negative thoughts, and communicating.
I enjoy working with overwhelmed students, including the gifted & talented or students with unique learning challenges. Because of my own experiences moving between different cultures and school systems around the world, I can also focus on helping students transition from countries, schools, curriculum.
I am a veteran Catholic schools teacher who combines a love for learning with generous doses of encouragement and nurturing. My background includes 16 years in the classroom mostly teaching middle schoolers. I also taught Freshman English for six years. Over the course of nearly 20 years, I served as writing coach, judge and tournament director for Power of the Pen, an Ohio-wide creative writing competition for 7th and 8th graders.
Now as an academic life coach, I help students grades 7 and up become the best versions of themselves.
I help adolescents and young adults acquire the skills they need to be active, capable, and dependable, both in college and in the ‘real world’ that comes afterward. As a college teacher and academic life coach, I have helped dozens of students develop their skills in writing, research, time management, study skills, professional communication, and many other trouble spots.
I have taught at the university level for nine years and am also a singer, writer, cartoonist, performer at the Renaissance Faire, and an aspiring slam poet. I love going to Disneyland.
A classroom teacher for over ten years, Sarah Weidman is now an academic life coach certified in the Anti-Boring Approach who works with stressed out teens who are overwhelmed by school pressure to help them get their work done without the stress.
Sarah combines the structure of the anti-boring appoach, tools for mindfulness and yoga, as well as the student's interests and strengths to overcome the challenges that they have in school whether it is breaking down a project and figuring out the first step or learning how to structure a paper. She serves students from late elementary through university, those with learning differences and those who are simply overwhelmed. When not working with students, Sarah might be training for the next triathlon or meditating in the garden.
