What is Academic Coaching?
Academic coaches work in partnership with students to provide strategies and resources for effective studying. Academic Coaches realize that students go through with more than just academics. An Academic Coach will listen to and work one-on-one with students holistically to help them reach their goals and potential. Academic Coaches can also connect students to relevant campus resources.
Academic Coaches can assist with:
- Study skills
- Test-taking strategies
- Academic strategies
- Learning style
Schedule an Appointment
Coaching sessions can last between 30 to 45 minutes. Coaches may provide assessments, tools, resources and much more during a session.
