Social Confidence Coaching

Are you looking for ways for your child to strengthen their social confidence skills? This program is an enhancement service that can be added on to our one on one in-home tutoring program or through our after school enrichment programs. Social and emotional skills have been proven to decrease conduct problems and emotional distress, and improve grades and test scores (Durlak, Weissberg, Dymnicki, Taylor & Schellinger, 2011).  Social confidence is the ability for a student to:

  • Have Successful and positive communication
  • Use and read non-verbal communication (body language, eye contact, etc.)
  • Articulate emotions and needs
  • Build and keep friendships
  • Problem solve socially challenging situations.
  • Use appropriate play skills
  • Express empathy with others’ feelings.
  • Understand their emotions and learn to self-manage them
  • Understanding appropriate ways to express frustration or anger
  • Resolve conflicts with positive outcomes
  • Understand and celebrate their strengths and weaknesses
  • Become a socially confidence leader in their own way

Learning and mastering these skills are a crucial component to academic success. Our social confidence curriculum full of interactive games and activities are designed to enhance students’ confidence and ability to initiate and sustain social interactions. Over the course of the coaching relationship, students thrive on the natural learning opportunities as they successfully generalize these skills during their one on one sessions, in the community or through our after school enrichment programs.

Our evidence-based curriculum utilizes Dr. Ross Greene’s Collaborative & Proactive Solutions© model, Michelle Garcia Winner’s Think Social!©, LinguiSystems, Inc.’s Executive Functions TrainingÔ, along with other contemporary methods and models prominent in the fields of education, psychology, and mental/emotional health.

RESEARCH:

Social and emotional skills serve as a foundation for academic success. Research shows that social and emotional learning can have a positive impact on school climate and provide space for academic, social, and emotional benefits for students. Durlak, Weissberg et al.’s recent meta-analysis of 213 rigorous studies of social emotional learning in schools indicates that students receiving quality social emotional learning instruction demonstrated:

  • Better academic performance: achievement scores an average of 11 percentile points higher than students who did not receive SEL instruction;
  • Improved attitudes and behaviors: greater motivation to learn, deeper commitment to school, increased time devoted to schoolwork, and better classroom behavior;
  • Fewer negative behaviors: decreased disruptive class behavior, noncompliance, aggression, delinquent acts, and disciplinary referrals; and
  • Reduced emotional distress: fewer reports of student depression, anxiety, stress, and social withdrawal.
