◆ Academic Coaching with Coach Bean ◆
Robert Bean has been working with pre-teens and teenagers for more than 20 years as a teacher, counselor, basketball coach, and executive function coach. He is a certified teacher and holds a master’s degree in School Counseling. As a high school counselor in Montgomery County, Maryland, Robert provided varied levels of support and “helped graduate” more than 900 students and families. He also coached high school basketball for 13 years and employs a supportive, empowering approach to helping students achieve their fullest potential.
Coach Bean had a firsthand look at the skills that enable student success. From this experience and from many conversations and interviews with very successful students, Coach Bean has developed a system for any student who wants to achieve peak performance in and out of the classroom.
His system provides concrete steps on how to master everyday life skills. These consist of exhibiting a consistent work ethic, effectively managing time, creating a system of organization and sticking with it...to name a few. Coach Bean applies his system while coaching students to be better students and advising students who are tackling the college application process. Similar to mastering any skill, the more work you put into it (sweat equity), the higher the chance that you will be good at it.
Coach Bean has the blueprint!

“Mr. Bean was a huge help for me towards the end of my high school years. He found creative ways to help me motivate myself. Whenever something didn’t seem to work out, he always seemed to have a new idea for me to try and he never gave up.”
Parent: 9 thru 12 grade
“Our family worked with Mr. Bean- 3 boys, 4 years each as their counselor. I can say with confidence that Mr. Bean is not only resourceful about higher education needs and options, but approaches each student with the kind of customized focus and compassionate care that leads to success both inside and outside of the classroom. His insights and ability to advocate for his students are incredible, and he is a valued team member on any family's academic path.”

“Coach Bean has been extremely helpful and effective in assisting our son with his transition to high school. He has helped him to stay organized and to develop strong study habits and time management skills. The tools and guidance that Coach Bean provides is not just for high school and college – they will benefit our son for the rest of his life.”
Parent: 11th grader
“Our son was paralyzed when he had to think about preparing for the SAT/ACT and college admissions process. He met Coach Bean. Our son became focused, thoughtful about how to approach his college search, and was less argumentative with his parents. Coach Bean helped to remove the stress of the process and better direct his attention to identify colleges of interest and finish his Junior year of high school strong. I would recommend Coach Bean to any high school Junior. It has been life-changing.”
