How do I add a coach for myself?

A coach can be anyone who supports you as you learn - your parent, your teacher, a tutor, or even a friend. If you have found someone who can coach you, they must first sign up with their own account using either their Google account, Facebook account, or email address. 

When you add someone as a coach, you give them access to your progress information so that they can better support your learning.  Follow the instructions below if you are a student who wants to add a coach. You will need either the coach's "class code" or the coach's email address.

  1. Once logged into your Khan Academy account, click your name at the top right. A menu will open. Click “Profile.”

  2. Click “Coaches” to see a list of your coaches.

  3. Follow the prompts on the left to add a coach or parent

If you have an email address attached to your account, your coach will be able to see the primary email account.

If you want to remove your coach, go to the "Coaches" tab as above and click the Remove coach button to the left of your coach. Children under 13 cannot remove their parents from the coach role. On a child account the button for removing the parent coach does not exist.
