Jeff Ainslie

Executive Function Coach
B.Ed.

Jeff is a very passionate educator who has worked and thrived in a wide variety of teaching environments. In his younger years, he taught children’s karate and women’s self defense courses.

When his professional teaching career started in the early 90’s, he taught in a television studio instead of a classroom. Jeff was a junior high science teacher for ACCESS Network’s “Homework Hotline” show.

Since then, his teaching career has spanned grades 1-12, adult education, teacher professional development, and corporate business training. Each of his teaching experiences has fine tuned his understanding of varied and complex learners and developed his personal teaching philosophy and style.

What sets Jeff apart is his creative enthusiasm for bringing joy and adventure to learning. A strong focus of his teaching methodology is based on research that shows a student’s brain works up to 31% better when in a positive frame of mind. He always strives for the most memorable, imaginative and fun methods to tackle teaching concepts. He believes that learning should be meaningful, worthwhile and self-esteem building.

What is most important to Jeff are the positive attitudes that he tries to instill about life-long learning and personal growth. If a student has a better understanding of themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, and a full toolbox of skills that will allow them to flourish in life, they are set to succeed!

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.
