2019 Online Coaching Class & Holiday Schedule
NorthSouth online coaching has become very popular with parents and students. In 2018, over 4,500 children were enrolled in the program.
The goal of NorthSouth coaching program is to enrich student learning beyond the education offered in the regular school. NorthSouth believes that a young child has extraordinary capacity to absorb information and learn when exposed to new concepts. Studies have shown that certain parts of the brain will not develop without stimulation during early formative years. The program strives to generate curiosity, inquisitiveness, exploration and discovery.
The coaching program provides flexibility to allow students to enroll in classes based on their skill (either above or below grade level). The program not only prepares students for rigorous classes in school but also participate effectively in aptitude exams and highly competitive contests.
Instructor led online coaching program offers classes in Math, SAT/ACT, Science, Geography, Computer Programming, Vedic Math, Universal Values, and Life Skills Program (Confidence Building). Coaching is provided in each subject at different grade levels.
NorthSouth online coaching is not a personalized school tutoring program. NorthSouth believes that parent involvement is an integral part of student learning process. While coaches rely on parents for encouraging the child to participate without distraction, we would like to limit parent involvement during in-class discussions to promote unhindered participation from children. Parents are requested to ensure that their child participates in every class and is respectful of other students.
Coaches uses web conferencing tools to interact with the students. Coaches are happy to answer any of your questions after the class or by email. Questions related to the concepts or content covered in the class should only be asked by the students.
Classes are not recorded, and, in most cases, class teaching material and slides are not shared. We encourage students to use other online resources to fill the gaps and/or reinforce the learning. It is expected that students attend all classes and there is no ability to make up for missed classes. Students will have the chance to catch up by working on the homework and getting clarification during the next class.
Coaches are volunteers comprised of subject matter experts, parents and highly skilled high school students.
There is homework given every week to reinforce learning of concepts covered in class. It is very important for children to complete homework on time. Please encourage the students to work on the homework as it is an integral part of learning. Students’ homework responses will provide feedback to coaches on where students may be having difficulty understanding the concepts.
NorthSouth coaching program benefits two groups of students:
- Students who are attending the online coaching classes
- Needy college students in India who receive educational grants from the funds raised through online coaching program
