Just like a coach in any sport, an Academic Coach's goal is to help you perform to the best of your abilities. During individual appointments, an Academic Coach will help you:

  • Structure your time, plan your semester and establish a routine
  • Juggle demanding college courses and co-curricular activities
  • Organize assignments and manage multi-step projects
  • Improve listening and reading comprehension
  • Understand effective test-taking and learning strategies
  • Regulate and self-monitor your own learning
  • Maximize your use of campus resources

Appointments are scheduled around your availability and needs. The conversation may last 15-45 minutes. Coaching is student-driven, based on your personal definition of success. We serve primarily as facilitators, asking questions that allow you to draw upon your own self-understanding and resourcefulness to create a system that works for you.
