Exclusive teen coaching by a former teacher, accomplished
social innovator
& leader in rethinking education

Teens (and their parents) face multiple challenges during their school career:

  • College application process

  • Executive functioning skills

  • Academics

  • Study habits

  • Self-awareness and confidence in skills & gifts

  • Telling their story on applications

  • Life skills

  • College & career planning

  • Career & job coaching

I meet teens wherever they are and bring them back in – to their own success, confidence and readiness for the future.

From a parent:

“Ms. Carrier’s lessons were the perfect segue for my daughter to prepare for real life situations – for what she is bound to encounter in her future. It provided her with a preview of what it would feel like to be seen as a professional adult. This is an important aspect of life.”

From a student:

“Ms. Carrier’s positive/reaffirming teaching style was one that I needed in order to
build self-confidence, graduate, and pursue a meaningful career.”

Additional Family Communication Coaching:

Once I start working with teens, I often see gaps in communication between teens and parents. I offer additional coaching services for families that enable fresh, open conversations and empower teens to find healthy ways to speak up. I help families navigate those tricky topics and encourage structured, goal-oriented discussion. Typical engagements:

  • 8 sessions, first weekly then every other week
  • Dinner-table, non-confrontational discussion
  • My role is advocate for your teen and I lead the discussion
  • Goal-setting oriented discussion around topics I see most amiss in families including:
    • Space
    • Privacy
    • Structure
    • Boundaries
    • Consistency
    • Personal time
    • Screen time
    • Communication
