You can inspire a student to succeed

Quite often students are lacking confidence, and they need a bit of help to find their direction. As a coach there are lots of opportunities to support, influence and guide, and that’s the bit I absolutely love. You very quickly see someone flourish, and you know that the work you’re doing with them is having an impact. It's really powerful.
