If Cameron Clark were to pick a single word to describe himself, he would choose “failure”. Failure is a word that many would associate with unsuccessful. However, for Cameron, he would make the controversial argument that these 2 words fit an indirect definition of antonyms. Failure is the sole reason that Cameron is currently set to graduate from Queen’s University with a Bachelor of Commerce with a 4.3 GPA and has so much to offer students transitioning from high school into post-secondary.

Throughout his life, Cameron has constantly faced failure, whether it be quizzes in high school, standardized achievement tests in his younger years, or losing multiple city championships in sports. Probably the most pivotal failure of Cameron’s life that has landed him as a Kaizen Peer Mentor and soon-to-be successful Queen’s alum is the rollercoaster of shifting from high school to university. Not unlike other teenagers and young adults, Cameron was thrown into a whirlwind of increased academic and social demands with no roadmap for navigating this unknown territory. Not one for allowing failure to be synonymous with “stop”, Cameron has allowed these defining moments to learn from his experiences and keep moving forward. Cameron has taught himself to treat failure as a lesson, and as a result, created a diverse set of strategies and skillsets that are applicable to numerous transitionary periods. Cameron offers the learnings that he has taken from his diverse set of experiences and intends to share his knowledge with others in an attempt to help their own transition from one chapter of life to another.

“Talent is a gift, but you can only succeed with hard work” – Jean Béliveau

Cameron is in his 4th year at Queen’s University, preparing to graduate in June with a Bachelor of Commerce from the Smith School of Business, specializing in accounting. He will then be heading to Toronto to complete his CPA with Ernst & Young.

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.
