An Online Program for High School & College Students

school survival boot campDoes your student lack the organizing, time management and study skills he needs to be successful in school and in life?

Are you worried you student will never be ready for college?

Would you love to find a seasoned pro who can be your student’s “Personal Trainer” and not have it cost an arm and a leg?

We have created a one-on-one, complete and customizable School Survival Boot Camp for the high school, and soon-to-be or struggling college student! Every class is individualized to the student’s specific needs.

Developed and taught by Leslie Josel, Academic/Life Coach for Teens and College Students and author of the “What’s the Deal with Teens & Time Management”, these core classes are are built on the philosophy that organizing and time management skills are the keys to success in school and in life! And, like any muscle in the body, strengthening these “muscles” requires proper exercise techniques, the correct equipment and the right personal trainer!

As your student’s “personal trainer”, I’ll teach them organizing and time management techniques, study strategies; how to manage distractions and procrastination, REAL life skills not taught in school, why the mind/body connection is critical to school success and so much more.

Leslie was able to teach our daughter what we couldn’t – how to effectively plan, juggle and manage her assignments within the time frame that she had. Using the tools that Leslie provided, plus her support and guidance, our daughter did not miss a single assignment during the first semester of her sophomore year, the anxiety attacks disappeared, and she was able to earn back her scholarship!
