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.
- Once logged into your Khan Academy account, you’ll be taken to your logged-in home page. Click on Teachers in the left navigation menu.
Follow the prompts under My teachers and tutors to Join a class or Add a coach.

Remove a coach
If you want to remove your coach, go to the Teachers page described above and click the Remove button to the right 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.
