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 Khan Academy account using their email address or their Google or Facebook account. 

When you add someone as a coach, you give them access to your progress information so that they can better support your learning.  If you have an email address attached to your account, your coach will also be able to see the primary email account.  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

Remove a coach

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