What Makes A Good Coach? 

 September 6, 2013

Although I originally posted this on my personal website some time ago, the information is perennially relevant, so I thought I’d share here on the Classroom Blog, where posts of a more educational nature reside 🙂

There are a lot of online classrooms springing up here and there, and I think it will be interesting to see how they evolve over time.  Some seem to provide little to no personal feedback at all, and instead simply drip scripted content to the user over time. Others, like mine, really are the online equivalent of a class, where students receive homework, do their homework, receive feedback on their homework, and also participate in discussions, sometimes with, and sometimes without the instructor chiming in. But, the instructor is providing that oh-so-valuable feedback! And, as an update, I’m happy to say that my Classroom now provides the best of BOTH worlds – those on a tight budget can still get the valuable information at a lower price, and those with a little more disposable income can participate in the discussions, still, at a reasonable price – something I’m proud that all the instructors here have stuck to.

As an instructor and coach, and as a person who actually has a formal education and degree in Science Education (and as somebody who taught in the public school system for a number of years!), the question of what makes a good coach is an important one that I think every person should consider. But it’s not the only question! As lifelong learners, we all need to consider several factors when deciding what makes a good instructor or coach for US, personally.

Why do you need a coach?
