To achieve this, Champion offers a personalized academic and life coaching experience for teenagers through young adults. If you are looking to be proactive in your journey of success or you feel a little overwhelmed and lost in the clutter of our education system, we are here to help.

• Align your goals with your unique purpose to give you confidence
• Succeed at school without sacrificing fun
• Discover who you are and what you really want to do
Thank you so much for your interest in Champion. I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself, my educational background, and my passion for helping students thrive in their academic and life journeys.
I have had the great honor of working directly with students in the classroom and supporting parents for over 2 decades. During that time, I taught students as young as 3 years old to undergraduate students in university. To this day, I maintain that the best training I ever had for parenthood was the thousands of hours I spent with my students and their families! It is through my career as a teacher and educational psychologist that Champion came to be.
Champion’s purpose is to help students uncover their strengths and help align their goals to purpose so they live an inspired and fulfilled academic life. To achieve this, I have created a highly personalized academic and life coaching experience for those students who want to be proactive about their learning journey, or who feel overwhelmed and lost in the clutter of our education system.
In addition to being an educator and educational psychologist, I am also a strengths-based life coach. Too often, students come to me having been knocked down and beat up from years of being told what they are not good at, without enough attention given to their talents and strengths. My teaching experience combined with a doctorate degree in education, leadership certificate from Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, and certifications in strengths-based life coaching have served as a basis upon which the Champion Study Cycle Curriculum™ was designed, refined, tested and perfected. This curriculum helps students learn necessary skills and habits so they can feel and be successful in school. I unpack the curriculum with students in a highly personalized coaching environment and through my P.U.L.S.E Process™ which, in addition to teaching study and executive functioning skills, also helps students find clarity in their purpose and goals.
I’m proud of the students and families Champion has served and will continue to support in a very personalized way. Champion serves as a living testament to who I am as an educator, a parent and an advocate for students. It also represents what I believe is missing in our system that our students and families so desperately need.
I look forward to meeting you and supporting you on your academic and life journey! Please email me if you have any questions.
You have plenty of teachers...what you need is a Coach!
FROM THE FOUNDER
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
DR. VICKI ROGERS
Dr. Rogers brings over 25 years of teaching experience across all levels of learning (from preschool through university) at high-performing academic institutions in the United States and around the world. During this time she has taught thousands of students and helped to coach them through their academic and life journeys. This first-hand experience with students (and parents too!) who were often stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious allowed for careful observation of children and young adults in their sometimes ‘unnatural habitat’ of school, and the impact that this setting had on developing their executive functioning skills.
Informed by these years of interactions, Dr. Rogers now runs her own practice (Champion Coaching & Consulting Pte. Ltd.) to support students as they navigate their academically challenging environments, and position themselves to enjoy their learning journeys. After moving out of the formal classroom, her motivation as an educator has not changed, only shifted slightly in its focus: to support her students - who she calls her “Champions” - in their personal academic and life journeys, with a focus on executive functioning skills development. Dr. Rogers believes that young adults who understand their learning style and unique strength sets will be successful in learning, and live inspired, confident, purposeful lives.
Dr. Rogers’ upbringing as a bilingual Third Culture Kid in Asia also allows her to easily connect with students from many different walks of life and inspire them to reach new heights of success in striving to achieve their goals. Her motto “Be Responsible For Your Own Intelligence!”, is something that was emblazoned on the wall of her classroom for decades. A natural learner herself, she is passionate about imparting this self-motivation to her students through her own love of learning.
Dr. Rogers’ academic background includes both a Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science and Economics from Colorado State University, and a Doctorate in Education from Durham University (UK), along with a post-doctoral certification in Executive Leadership from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. She is also a certified Strengths Communicator and Practitioner©, and as an educational psychologist, is passionate about the science behind learning and the brain.
As a staunch believer in total wellness, Dr. Rogers is an avid runner and swimmer, and takes every opportunity to play outdoors, whether in the rainforests of Singapore or the mountains of Colorado, where she calls home. She loves spending time with her son, husband, and hyperactive Vizsla.
