TESTIMONIALS (from their parenting course):
“This parent seminar is like no other. Understanding the learning process and the development of executive functions is a component of parenting that is often overlooked. Greg and Chris are exceptionally skilled at what they do and amazing communicators. In this seminar, they provide a baseline of information that will help any parent become more empathetic and knowledgeable as they help guide these wonderful young persons in developing their own independence and confidence. This seminar applies to so much more than just academics – it applies to life skills.”
“I took the parenting course in summer 2019 and learned so much about how the developing brain, growth mindset, and the importance of modeling (as opposed to managing), and much more. I still have my notes and refer back to them periodically. I highly recommend the course for anyone interested in supporting their children as they grow into lifelong learners.”
“Chris and Greg’s parent seminars are not to be missed! In a short time, I became more savvy about myself and my kids as learners. Their coaching tips aim to reduce parent-child conflict by leveraging current research on the brain and descriptive stories of their students. I highly recommend their seminars for parents of all kids!”
"We attended Northwest Educational Services’ parent seminar series in 2019 - the content was highly relevant and well presented, and the welcoming setting provided us the opportunity to engage directly with expert educators and other parents. As parents of middle and elementary school students, we were able to relate to the information shared, and apply the seminar’s concepts directly into our own family interactions and dynamics. We look forward to attending again this year.”
"I found this series when my youngest student was in his final prep for college applications. How I wish that I had taken it years earlier so I could have supported both my students through their schooling! The information Greg and Chris share is helpful to all parents but especially those of students who struggle academically or battle with the stress of perfectionism. Incorporating these lessons into my own life has been very worthwhile but the value is exponentially higher to learn and adopt the tools and strategies while your students are still at home, preparing for college and life. Thankfully my son was able to find his motivation and potential with Greg's guidance. He became a hardworking high school student, attends a highly selective college, and is earning academic accolades. The potential is in every child, you just need the right guide and guided parents to help them find it and draw it out."
"We are the fortunate parents of twin daughters, both with unique-to-them strengths and challenges in the learning environment. No one-size-fits-all approach for us. We were looking for some coaching to sort out the best ways to give each daughter the specific support they needed to be successful in their school environments. The Parenting for Academic Success classes we took through NWES provided us with that and more.
"Coaches Greg and Chris spoke to all learning types, teaching parents how to encourage their kids to identify and articulate what they needed, and how to ask for it, so that they could become independent drivers of their own academic success. Once we began to implement some of the tools we learned, both of our students began to, more and more readily, reach out for help from resources beyond us (other students, academic coaches, school tutors and teachers) and do so in a timely manner, before test anxiety or project panic set in.
"We also learned new tools to support both daughters in becoming more consistent in their study habits. Instead of ‘cramming’ the night before an exam, the girls began to develop habits which vastly reduced last-minute, stress-driven studying.
"Our daughters have now transitioned to great-fit universities where they are happy, engaged, independent, and consistently experiencing academic success.
"Greg and Chris brought their combined years of expertise coaching students at all grade levels, and advising parents who desire to support student success, and shared concrete, well informed, research based, ground tested, information and strategies that aided us in our efforts to support our unique learners. We cannot recommend them highly enough."
