This coaching is similar to the service found at a college writing center except it's delivered by a senior business writer with a Master's degree in education. When you're stuck on a writing project, book an hour to get unstuck. Each meeting centers on the student's nonfiction writing project that is currently stuck. Depending on the status of a project, time might be devoted to idea generation, research, structure of the document, or a sentence-by-sentence review of a draft.
