What sets me apart as a life coach and tutor?
Coaching is balance for me, not my livelihood. I coach as part of my larger career as full time college faculty in prison; this is not my full time job. Prison teaching and coaching is full of rewards and unique celebrations, but equally fraught with barriers - even for teachers and staff. I only work with clients who feel I am the perfect fit. I am not here to sell you on a bad match.
I am authentic. I am not a salesperson. I am flawed. I am still learning. I have debt, problems, and setbacks, just like you. However, I am proud, confident, motivated, and healthy, and I did not used to be any of these things! I want that for my clients, and I am very good at getting them there!
I am flexible. The format in which I work with clients is client-driven. You decide the structure and format, and I will adjust (unless structure is what you struggle with, in which case I will suggest strategies to proceed!)
I have unmatched experience. With a Masters in Adult Education and a pending Doctorate in Innovation & Leadership Education (in 2025!), I have an academic background that sets me apart. More importantly however, I have traveled the world, been married and divorced, and did not find my path until I was about 30. No other life coach out there has taught motorcycle driver's education, bartended, and mountain biked in Laos. I have lived, and continue to live, an interesting, unfettered and adventurous life, which has also included self-doubt, uncertainly, career confusion, anxiety, poverty, risky behavior, and overall instability. If you struggle with these things, not only can I relate to you like no other coach, but I will work with you without judgement.
I do not give up. Many students and clients struggle with commitment, motivation, discipline, anxiety, doubt, and self-esteem. These factors often lead to setbacks and a lack of follow-through -- which is why they like working with me. I will not give up on you, and I will hold you accountable so that you meet your goals.
I am thrilled to apply my decade+ of teaching and tutoring experience to help more adults thrive rather than survive, set and reach goals, and reach their full potential. Specific strengths: fitness, careers, goal setting, confidence, academics, strength-based approaches, financial wellness, work/life balance.
Life coaching rates range from $70-$95/session which includes an hour face to face session, plus homework/readings, depending on the client's needs and wants. Tutoring rates vary from $28-$40/hour depending on the subject and frequency of meetings (the more frequently we meet, the lower the hourly rate). Please keep my rates in mind before you ask for a quote. Thank you!
