Parent Coaching

A Transformational Learning Plan for your Child

Parents. Ask yourself these three questions:

  • Does your child’s education cover all that they will need to be a “successful” adult?
  • Do you think your child’s grades reflect their unique gifts, talents, and interests?
  • Do you have an “on-paper-on-purpose” plan for your child’s learning?

If you answered “No” to even one of these questions then you’re not alone. This is normal for most families but it doesn’t have to be this way for your family! We offer a low-cost, 4-part journey that starts a transformation of your relationship with education.

How Parents & Kids Benefit

Confidence

You know your child better than anyone! Coaching sessions show you how to use that knowledge to grow a future-ready child.

Engagement

85% of middle and high school kids are disengaged and bored in their learning. Your Learning Plan will reverse this troubling statistic.

Preparation

Let’s face it. Schools are unable to keep up with the pace of change in the 21st Century. We help you learn how to actively prepare them.

Peace

There is no greater peace than knowing your child is well-prepared for their future. And there is no greater worry if they are not.

Liberation

If your child feels discouraged, trapped, or stressed about school, for their sake, now is your chance to liberate them.

Inspiration

There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a young learner inspired and engaged in their own learning plan.

Matt Barnes

Educational Coach

After spending 20 years at the highest levels of schools and universities, I saw how common it was that kids and families were misinformed about education. I began to feel a calling to share educational information that families could use to help their kids. 

That’s how The Education Game was born.

Ever since, I’ve been on a mission to provide parents with highly practical support and resources to help them ready their kids for the real world. 

With this coaching, I will provide you with information and strategies that you can use within 15-minutes of the course.
