Academic Coaching

Academic Coaching can be defined as the one-on-one process of helping a student examine academic concerns and perceived barriers to success. Coaches provide students with semester-long academic support in areas such as time management, procrastination, test preparation, note taking, and reading strategies. They work individually with students, assess their strengths and needs, and devise a personalized plan of action.
