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