Esther Wilkison is a Learning Coach on a mission to help you master the foundational skills you need to thrive.
No one who knew Esther’s struggles in school expected her to become a teacher, trainer of teachers, and Learning Coach—but God loves to do the unexpected.
Being labeled with dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia set Esther on a quest to understand how the brain learns. What she discovered not only transformed her but also provided strategies that have proven effective for those she has helped.
Esther put her BS in Elementary Education and her MA in Counseling use teaching all elementary levels in a variety of school and homeschool settings.
In 2015, Esther began LearningLifeguard.com to offer personalized coaching to help nonstandard learners thrive.

My son was falling behind after months of e-learning. I was not equipped with the skills or patience to teach. We have seen a huge improvement in his writing and reading, and maybe more importantly, his confidence. We are so pleased with his progress. We couldn’t be more grateful for Esther. ~L.H.
As an adult, I had been told my whole life that I was nothing more than a “cut-up” in the classroom; a waste of potential. In my thirties that changed when God used Esther to help me understand that I am a lifelong learner and had a relevant place in life… even academic life. As an atypical learner, I have processing struggles. Esther showed me how to learn. Then, she convinced me that I am a reader and a writer. These are two words that my teachers would have agreed that I would never become. Now I am an educator, trainer, and learning coach who teaches teachers how to better teach. ~C.C.
“My husband and I contracted with Esther as a learning coach for our children, (then 4th and 5th grade) after pulling them out of our local public school after the first quarter. It had become clear over a period of testing and evaluation, that one of our children was a “nonstandard learner,” processing and learning differently from the “norm.” . . . After a little less than a school year’s time, both children were well into their grade levels in both reading and math. Esther was a Godsend to our family at a time of great frustration and uncertainty. Not only did our children greatly benefit from her services, but I came away with greater confidence and knowledge in how to be a better homeschool parent. I would strongly recommend Esther as an excellent coach, role model, tutor, and advisor in the homeschool arena.” ~K.R.
Esther was able to pinpoint some key areas where my son needed help such as balance, coordination, pencil grip, and visual focus. She provided exercises that strengthened his skills. My son was able to learn over time how to relax the muscles in his arms and hands. Now he seems so much more comfortable and confident holding a pencil, and he has way more endurance to draw a picture or write letters than he did before. My son has learned how to catch a ball without closing his eyes because he has learned to focus on it. It is truly incredible to see how far he has come! I can tell Miss Esther truly loves the children she works with and gives 100% to provide kids with the tools they need to succeed. ~L.R.
