We ARE A SPECIALIZED EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT SERVICE THAT combineS the science of learning with the art of EXECUTIVE SKILLS COACHING, empowerING students to UNLEASH THEIR ACADEMIC AND LIFE POTENTIAL ONE STEP AT A TIME.
KAIZEN Education Services works one-on-one with students to strengthen a set of skills that are essential for learning and life. In an education system, these skills are commonly referred to as Executive Functioning Skills [EFS]. We aren't born with these skills, but we all have the potential to develop them.
While we are not about guaranteeing grades, we are about increasing your child’s self-confidence and decreasing school stress. Our measure of success is when your child begins to confidently utilize the tools and strategies Kaizen has provided.
"We guide students to help them see their strengths, gifts and innate potential. We teach them HOW their brain works and WHY they can complete some tasks with ease while others create anxiety and fear. Once they understand their brain, Kaizen students are on the road to being rock star scholars."
- Samantha Woods, KAIZEN Founder & Director
MEET A KAIZEN PARENT
AND A KAIZEN STUDENT
Our academic coaches are experienced, certified Alberta teachers who are specifically trained in supporting students with executive skill deficits. Unlike traditional tutors, they are uniquely equipped to integrate executive skill training with specific course content.
John is our In-house registered psychologist. Find out more here.
At Kaizen Education Services we develop an individualized executive skills toolkit alongside each student sharing and teaching many of the tried and tested tools and approaches we know work from our vast experience with young people. Many of the students that end up in our office are already feeling down about themselves and their performance in school. Our first step is to develop a strong rapport and support system, making it very clear to them that we are here to encourage, guide and support. Building confidence and managing fear and anxiety often come into play right off the bat. We offer One-on-One Coaching, Study Groups, Workshops and more.
"Our family has had an excellent experience with Kaizen Education Services in Calgary and would love to see more children, youth, young adults, parents and educators benefit from their services.
Our son, has ADHD, Sensory Processing Disorder, a Learning Disability in Written Expression, Giftedness (in several areas) and Executive Skill disfunction (a layered diagnoses, as most with ADHD have!). The registered psychologist who completed his assessment highly recommended Kaizen Education Services to assist him with his Learning Disability. Blessed to have received this recommendation, he continues to experience personalized strategies to help develop strengths in the area Written Expression (far better and far beyond our son's experience in a different independent read/write program he was enrolled in).
