Homework coaching focuses on equipping a student with the study skills required to succeed academically.
This approach is different from regular tutoring which typically seeks to improve a student's performance in a specific subject.
In some countries, there is no certification or licensing required to be a business or executive coach, and membership of a coaching organization is optional.
Further, standards and methods of training coaches can vary widely between coaching organizations.
Professional coaching uses a range of communication skills (such as targeted restatements, listening, questioning, clarifying etc.) to help clients shift their perspectives and thereby discover different approaches to achieve their goals.
