Coaching is different from tutoring. Wikipedia explains it as "a more collaborative approach" to improve learning. "Coaches help students learn how they best learn and how to operate in an academic environment. Tutors help students learn the material in individual courses while coaches help students learn how to be successful in school. Coaches work with students, not just those who are struggling academically. Some highly motivated, high-achieving students will have a coach to improve their learning efficiency."
