What is Virtual Coaching?

Coaches are experienced people who support a learner or client that is seeking to achieve a personal or professional goal. The coach provides training and guidance through their own experience in order to help reach this goal. A virtual coach is a regular coach but doing all the same guidance online, usually for the same goal.
