Occam’s Razor: A Thought Regarding Academic Coaching

“Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

— Albert Einstein

If a problem is to be solved, it must be properly conceptualized, and academic coaching provides an alternative to the notion that psychological problems are at work. Chesapeake Coaching recognizes that not all referrals are psychiatric in nature.

If you (or a student you know) is under-functioning in the classroom, let’s develop some hypotheses that are adequate for understanding what is taking place, but does not include needless redundancies and over-complicated diagnostic formulations.

At Chesapeake Coaching, simpler is usually better and more cost-effective with respect to time and money.
