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.
Being a Learning Coach will be the hardest job you’ll ever love!
You can learn more about the role of the Learning Coach by attending one of our live Online Open Houses. You’ll get to hear from an experienced Learning Coach and have your questions answered before the session ends. Visit our Open House page to see dates and RSVP.
