Q: How does coaching help students?

Q: How do sessions work? 
A: Your goals, needs, concerns, and questions set the agenda for our collaboration. Every student is unique, and we will develop the appropriate plan for you.
You will be coached through a combination of self-assessment, direct instruction, hands-on application, and guided reflection. Your projects will include a personalized strategic plan and a portfolio of your unique experiences and skills. 
 
Q: How and where will we meet?
A: Our conversations will take place in person whenever possible, and through videoconferencing and phone as needed. Due to COVID-19, all appointments are currently conducted via a secure Zoom meeting link.  Note - Kairos College Success uses Central Standard Time.

A: Megan has coached hundreds of students to success using these research-supported methods.

The KCS approach is built on those methods.
 
Q: I made some mistakes that set me back. Can you still help me? 
A: Absolutely. Real life can get in the way of college for anyone, and frequently does. If you have been placed on probation, failed courses, dealt with personal difficulties, battled health problems, or experienced any of the struggles that can make focusing on school difficult, reach out. Megan has helped hundreds of students graduate after dealing with a variety of challenges. She is ready to help you.

Q: What does "kairos" mean?
A: Kairos (KYE-rohs) is a Greek term from the study of rhetoric, meaning "the opportune moment." For good advice to be truly beneficial the right words must be delivered to a seeker in the right way, at the right time. For people who are embarking on the challenges of college, and within a coaching relationship, timing is everything.
