Brilliance Coaching, by Ian

 Too often, transitions in a student’s academic journey act as stressful threats to their self-esteem. What if those challenges could be opportunities to bring out the latent potential in every learner? CEO Ian Siegel’s 15,000+ hours of test prep coaching over the last decade and Streamline’s combined 50,000 hours as a 1-on-1 coaching company have informed the development of a transformative 1-on-1 practice that helps students perform when it counts.

Doing so involves the challenging work of unlocking the brilliant learner in every student. Grounded in insights captured in CEO Ian Siegel’s book, School Sucks, Your Child Doesn’t, our methodology doesn’t just make impressive improvements in school or standardized tests possible. Our work holistically transforms students as learners for life.

“Working with me isn’t for everyone. I will change who you are as a student, as a person. I will see your potential and won’t stop pushing until you’ve reached it.”

Making the Connection, by Thom

What is flow state? In tutoring, it’s the experience that student and tutor share in which both tutor and student are learning at lightning pace. When this occurs, scores skyrocket, and students develop a new sense of identity around learning. The key to achieving flow state is grounded in the connection we develop with our students. In other words, we’re not teachers. We’re not drill sergeants. We’re your child’s Brilliance Coach.

“When I work with students, I see potential in them that they don’t see in themselves. Brilliance Coaching for me is about helping students realize who they really are and what they’re actually capable of.”
