Top Ten Tips for New Learning Coaches

The decision to embrace virtual school is an exciting one, but it comes with a learning curve. That’s why I’ve assembled a few of my best tips for new learning coaches!  

1. Make a schedule and stick to it. I recommend creating a full schedule and strictly following it for two full weeks. You could use a paper planner or calendar, scheduling programs or apps, or whatever works for you. In fact, I’d suggest experimenting to find your best fit. Whatever you choose, stick to it for two full weeks. At the end of the two weeks, once you’ve become comfortable with the schedule and technology, begin to embrace your flexibility. You can adopt a checklist mentality, break up the school day into smaller parts, or do what fits your life best.
