Executive Skills to Support

Visual Motor Speed

Angela was born and raised on Prince Edward Island and has always had a love of life and learning. After grade 11, Angela received an opportunity to leave her small-town high school behind and switch coasts, joining a United World College in Victoria, BC, where she earned International Baccalaureate. It was there she realized she lacked a complete set of executive functioning skills. While she cruised through school as a top student on the east coast, she quickly realized that listening in class and hoping for the best was not enough at this new level. After support from her solid-C-student sister, who worked to cultivate her own executive functioning skills, eventually flourishing as an A-student in university, Angela found her groove again.

Angela started her adult life with a degree in Commerce, Information Systems, in Quebec, and worked in advertising in downtown Toronto for four years. After realizing that education was her passion, Angela moved to Calgary and pursued her Education degree in Elementary Education, teaching and learning with the Rocky View School Division since 2004 and could not be happier.

Under her nearly 20-year teaching tenure, Angela’s positions have varied, satisfying her desire to keep learning, growing, and evolving as an educator. Angela has taught grades 4 to 8 in both English and French, and has also worked in Learning Support, where she has had the opportunity to work one-on-one with students struggling in a traditional classroom. Reading and math have always been a love for Angela, so being able to work with the reading intervention program at her school, using the Fountas and Pinnell system, was an absolute joy. The common thread seen by Angela in many of her struggling students was a lack of confidence and a feeling of helplessness. Angela’s ultimate goal is to help each student discover their own learning groove so they can thrive with confidence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Below is a list of answers to our most commonly asked questions. If you can’t find the answer to your question, please contact us and we’ll get right back to you.
How does Kaizen determine what my child’s Executive Skills strengths and deficits are?
We are data collectors. We gather as much relevant data regarding your child's learning as possible. This includes feedback from the parents, educational psychological assessments (if available), information from Kaizen's free questionnaire, and any school evaluations or assessments that can be shared with us.

Kaizen has partnered with Mindprint Learning, creator of the world’s leading online cognitive test developed by neuroscientists in the Brain Behavior Laboratory at Penn State University’s Perelman School of Medicine. This Learning Profile Assessment, combined with two, 1:1 consultations with Kaizen’s Director gives you a clear picture of where your child shines and where they need support.

Learn more about the Learning Profile Assessment.

We also offer a FREE online questionnaire to help you identify your child’s Executive Functioning needs & strengths before committing to the Coaching Intake Process.

Is Kaizen Coaching the same as tutoring?
No. Tutoring teaches students WHAT to learn; Kaizen teaches students HOW to learn and WHY it’s important. The essence of Kaizen Education Services is to foster results through incremental steps, focused on building confidence through understanding. Our objective is to highlight the importance of establishing differentiated processes and systems that contribute to the overall long-term personal and academic growth of each learner. Empowering brains for learning and life. Skills that can be applied across your child’s entire curriculum and beyond.
How does my child start their coaching sessions with Kaizen?
Contact us to book your intake, and we will match your child with a coach so that they can get started.
My child has had a psychoeducational assessment completed and needs help. Is Kaizen the right fit?
Certainly! Oftentimes, a psychoeducational assessment is completed and results are shared, but lack guidance and support for the appropriate next steps leaving you, the parent, wondering, “What now?” If strategies are provided, you are often left to your own devices which can create additional frustration.

The curriculum from which Kaizen operates is tailored to your child and their very specific needs. By sharing the results of your child’s psychoeducational assessment with your child’s coach, we can work together to best support your child academically, intellectually, and beyond.

My child has ADHD. How can Kaizen Coaching help?
Typically, executive functions are delayed up to 30% in a child diagnosed with ADHD. More than 85% of Kaizen’s students have been diagnosed with ADHD, and more than 70% with an additional or other learning difference. Executive Function deficits are amplified in those with ADHD and, as a result, our coaches are specially trained in effective strategies and methodologies to best support your child.
