Academic Coaching

WHO is an Academic Coach?

Peer Academic Coaches are trained individuals who work with students one-to-one. Academic Coaches guide you into becoming the most effective, self-regulated learner possible. Academic coaching focuses on learning strategies, life management skills, and earning strong grades. 

A coach individualizes appropriate activities based upon your strengths and weaknesses, similar to how an athletic coach or a personal trainer assesses an athlete and develops a training regimen.

You should meet with an academic coach if you:

  • Would like to sharpen your learning or life management skills, including: College reading, Managing stress, Motivation and focus, Communicating with instructors, Test-taking strategies, and Time management
  • Would like to improve your academic performance
  • Want to alleviate the pressure felt from academics

How does academic coaching work?

Initial coaching appointments typically last 45 minutes. At the first appointment, you will have an academic success consultation with a professional Academic Coordinator. He/she will assess your needs, recommend a success plan, and assign you to a peer academic coach for follow-up.

A success plan may include:

  • Follow-up appointments
  • Referrals to academic support services
  • Assignments designed to develop effective learning strategies or time management skills

If a follow-up session is needed, your progress will be monitored during the semester and works with you on various success strategies.
