Zach Flower

Executive Function Coach
B.BA. Marketing

Zach traveled to Nova Scotia from Calgary to begin his adventure into teaching world, receiving his Bachelor of Education from Saint Francis Xavier University.

Zach currently teaches at a school that focuses on working with a range of complex learners who have been diagnosed with learning and/or attention challenges. If you ever ask Zach about his current teaching position, you will most likely hear him say “I have found my family,” a sentiment that he also shares with his Kaizen team.

Zach brings a unique perspective to Kaizen. His experience and expertise comes from having a “walked the walk” framework. He has diagnosed ADHD and LD and as such, has a unique empathy and understanding of ‘the struggling student.’ It didn’t hit him until later in life how much of an impact he could have on children going through the same trials as himself! On a very personal level, Zach deeply understands and can relate to the fear, anxiety and continued self doubt of, “Am I worth it?” He believes that students need strong mentors who can empathize, and connect while challenging their beliefs about how they learn. Zach also believes in the power of personal resilience, hard work and using strengths to challenge and ultimately overcome weaknesses. Kaizen’s mission of empowering students to take control of their learning is one that Zach wholeheartedly believes in!

When Zach is not in the classroom, he is swimming, biking and running his way to his way to his next triathlon race. He is a passionate coach of both junior and senior boys high athletic teams and loves witnessing his athletes strive for long term personal growth, fulfillment and success. Outside of training you can find him with his guitar, singing away or laughing and enjoying his “me” time with his young son Landen and beautiful wife Tayler.

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.
