The Coaching Educator


The Coaching Educator helps students get into and succeed at the right school.
Our clients have the distinct advantage of a focused plan with defined objectives. We love helping families by taking the guesswork out of the entire process from start to finish.

Our History

The Coaching Educator was founded to help families successfully navigate career and college paths for their children. We are in our tenth year of providing a unique one-stop-shopping approach to admissions and financial aid, and are immensely proud of the lives we have impacted.

Our Philosophy

The jobs market changed drastically after the 2008 recession, making a college education an increasingly necessary part of success. We’re not vague about our claims. If you look at our Facebook page, you’ll see that we post specific figures about the money we’ve saved for particular families!

Online Option

Pressed for time? We are proud to offer all of our services online for your convenience. Our face-to-face video chat allows us to meet with your student one-on-one without adding another drive to your busy schedule.​

What We Offer

Choose from academic packages for each year of high school as well as specialized packages for athletes, college students, and students pursuing a special talent.​ We offer referral, early payment, and military discounts.

“Rebecca has worked with my husband and I on and off for two years. She helped us in the life coaching department with help in writing up resumes for some job transitions we were looking into. Most recently, she assisted my husband in getting a scholarship for the local workforce training center to start firefighting. She also went to bat for me with the local community college financial aid office! I’m now going back to school in January with a full Pell Grant when they originally denied me any aid at all. Thank you!”
