What is a Learning Coach?

The Learning Coach is the primary responsible adult at home who monitors their student's progress and assists them in meeting school requirements. PA Virtual requires that a parent/guardian/Learning Coach remains at home with the student while the student is attending school in order to provide academic support. As a Learning Coach, you will be a key player on your student’s team, partnering with your child’s teachers and actively working alongside him or her every day. The fulfillment of your role and responsibility is crucial to your student’s success.

The Learning Coach's Day

While each family’s day will be as unique as they are, time management and structure are key components for success in a virtual model. Some of the activities you as a Learning Coach can expect to do regularly are:

  • Work alongside your child every day
  • Assist with the completion of online and offline lessons
  • Manage daily and weekly class schedules
  • Ensure class attendance
  • Log academic hours
  • Track student progress
  • Ensure completion and submission of coursework and projects
  • Communicate with teachers and staff on a regular basis
