PIER Problem-Based Integrated Education Resolutions
PIER Consultants and Coaches are scholars, experts and professionals from various disciplines and fields who are versed in PIER’s learning profile analysis and in the exploitation of different learning strengths.  Coaches may be scholars from disciplines such as philosophy, history, literature or anthropology, or they may be practitioners in fields such as psychology, art, music, engineering, urban planning, law enforcement, politics etc. Pairing students with experts and professionals in fields most attuned to those students’ individual interests and approaches supports their natural ability and drive to learn and helps them navigate how they—and their approaches—are relevant to the world.

She has a good sense of humor; she listens well; she is very perceptive and she truly loves what she does.
