What is 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. Working with an academic coach can help you study smarter by developing skills in time management, goal setting, and test preparation.
What can I expect in my academic coaching session?
Academic coaching is designed to give you space for a conversation that will help move you forward with your goals and ambitions. Because it is focused on your needs and goals, the coaching appointment will be driven by you.
Before your first appointment, you must complete the Academic Coaching Survey. In the first appointment, your responses will be discussed.
