Brady is passionate about helping others be their best. Whether in his role as a classroom teacher, an Outdoor Educator, a Field School Director, or as a Wilderness Guide on Vancouver Island’s remote coast, Brady has found fulfillment in connecting learners with meaningful experiences and supporting them in realizing their full potential.

After years as a Wilderness Guide leading and connecting clients with the wild coasts of his home on Vancouver Island, Brady asked “What more could I do to make my community a better place?” The answer first came in a demanding but extremely rewarding Violence Prevention contract within Vancouver Island’s schools. Initially challenged in his new role, Brady grew into his position as a facilitator of some very difficult content, including racism, family violence, sexual health, substance abuse, suicide, and ultimately respectful relationships. With the success he had in this role, a seed was planted: he wanted to teach.

Brady has spent 8 years in the classroom in both Tofino and Rossland, BC, embracing the opportunity to teach to an amazing and culturally diverse student population with complex challenges. His practice has been devoted to fostering a love of learning, confidence building, and developing strong, empathic relationships with students and their families.

Brady has worked closely with many students with ADHD, LD, and Executive Dysfunction. He has implemented practices and strategies geared towards mindfulness, physical health and wellness, nature connection, and lessons on executive functioning, brain anatomy and social-emotional health. He has succeeded in fostering incredible connections with students and has witnessed gratifying and remarkable growth in both himself as well as those he teaches.

As a father, Brady has personal experience parenting a child with Executive Function challenges and intimately understands the difficulties, the emotions, and the needs of both parent and child. He believes that relationships are what make learning possible. To truly connect with a child we need to slow down, to listen, to empathize, and to meet them where they are. We need to create safe learning environments where children feel seen and are willing and able to take risks. We need to teach strategies to support each individual’s learning strengths and challenges.

As a lifelong learner, Brady continues to dream big and challenge himself. He is a father to 2 amazing kids: Kieran, 10, and Macy, 8, who continue to teach him each and every day. He and his family have recently established a home and business in Costa Rica and are splitting their time between the mountains of BC and the beaches of Central America.

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.
