As a component of quality education, effective teaching is connected to students’ exam success in the traditional understanding of education. However, today, effective teaching practices are handled much more comprehensively. In line with this innovative perspective in education and teaching processes, there are changes and developments in the teaching practices of teachers. It is clear that teachers need professional development to adapt to changes and new practices in existing teaching practices, and this need is valid for mathematics teachers as well as for many disciplines. In this study, a model of reflective mathematics coaching for the professional development of mathematics teachers is proposed. In the study, the findings obtained from the research studies on coaching on a large scale in the international literature, and in particular the multiplicity of mathematics, what coaching is and why it is needed, types of coaching, the basic elements of the coaching process, the coaching process and its implementation process, the supporting mechanisms for the effective coaching process and the difficulties of the process are discussed. In the light of this information, a proposal for a reflective mathematics coaching model has been developed as a school-based professional development model that can be used in the mathematics coaching process in Turkey.
