Reviews of Russell Coaching for Students
Dr. Russell has helped so many students and their parents experience success in their academic and personal lives. Her knowledge of child development allows her to understand what is appropriate for each individual child based on their stage in life. She also gives tools to parents and allows them to step back and watch their children grow and develop into independent, high-functioning people-- every parent's goal!
I started working with them the second half of last school year…my son was struggling and I had literally run out of things to try. So I asked my pediatrician if she knew of anything else that could help and she called me back a few days later suggesting I call Dr Russell. When we started my son was failing all but one class…we started with our weekly sessions and I would sign him up for any of the homework sessions too. The turn around in his grades was slow and steady. He managed to get B and C’s - which from where he started I was thrilled. He started HS this year and I was quite nervous - all I can say is how proud I am of him. He is like a completely different kid - all assignments are not only turned in but his tests grades have been all A’s and B’s. His coach really helped him prepare for this year weeks before school even started. She has been giving him tools to stay on track. It’s been such a positive experience for both he and I. I am looking forward to seeing what else he can do with his coach’s help this year!
Dr. Russell has been tremendously helpful in navigating my ADHD through school and early career moves. I am very appreciative of her dedication and flexibility in working with me. Whether it’s with managing medication or working on my time management, I have seen a massive improvement in my work ethic since I started with her a few years ago. Highly recommend!
We hired Russell Coaching to help my newly ADHD diagnosed son get through his 9th grade year at a new school that had online schooling demands due to COVID. Michelle, one of Russell Coaching's amazing coaches, was quickly able to gain a great rapport with my son and teach him how to stay on track with this assignments and studying. His grades quickly turned around. This year Michelle is teaching more skills to continue to be successful in school. Russell Coaching has been integral to my son's current trajectory where he's getting good grades and learning how to organize and complete his assignments on time. I highly recommend Russell Coaching if your child is struggling academically in school due to ADHD.
As a Nurse Practitioner and Founder/Owner of a clinic devoted exclusively to ADHD, I have worked with Russell Coaching for two years and have nothing but praise for Dr. Russell and her associates. What I particularly appreciate is that Dr. Russell is such a strong advocate for wholistic ADHD treatment and works collaboratively with medical professionals like myself to make sure everything possible is done for the child or teen. Highly recommend!
Russell Coaching and Associates made a huge difference in my son's life. They have partnered with my son's psychiatrist, school, and therapist and his academic coach has such a great rapport with him. We have seen big strides in my son's organizational, focus and self-advocacy skills. We recommend them to anyone looking for an academic coach.
Dr. Russell was able to make a great connection with my daughter. She always went above and beyond for her, including helping to meet with her teachers. Dr. Russell is always friendly, positive and upbeat. She was able to help my daughter to see of all of her good qualities. I highly recommend her!
Russell Coaching provides an insightful, professional, and colloborative approach to helping each student thrive. Top notch!
I can't say enough good things about the folks at Russell Coaching! Our son, who has ADHD, autism, and anxiety, sees one of their amazing coaches twice a week. She is kind, compassionate, engaging, and fun. She's helped our son go from math-phobic to math-successful--something we didn't think we'd ever see!
