What are the College Coaching sessions?

The College Coaching sessions are 1:1 meet ups to help you stay on top of your college or uni work. You will be supported in organising your files, managing timetabes, dealing with communications, understanding assignment briefs and planning to meet deadlines.

What happens in a session?

It depends what you need. We meet up, talk about how you have coped with the start of the academic year and take it from there.

Where do they take place?

At the moment My Name Is Not Sir can meet for sessions in Birmingham, Derby, Leeds, Leicester and Manchester. A face to face session is best and usually takes place in a coffee bar near you. My Name Is Not Sir can help with location, if necessary.

How long does a session last?

It depends on you. The minimum would be the time it takes to drink a coffee. Maximum depends on lots of other things.

How many sessions will I need?

Often it takes just one session to get organized and you are ‘set to go’. You might decide you want to check up on things and do a session once or twice a term. Maybe more, maybe less. It’s up to you. My Name Is Not Sir can advise you on what kind of session would be useful, for how long and how often.

How much does it cost?

My Name Is Not Sir operates a pay what you want system.

What do I need to bring to a session?

Your mobile phone is a vital piece of equipment for recording, receiving and communicating information, so you could bring that, along with any electronic device or notebook that you think could be useful for organising your college or uni work.

Can I bring a friend?

Of course! Paired or group sessions are not a problem.
