Academic Coaching

Find inspiration and new strategies for success in and out of the classroom.

Reach Your Academic Goals

Academic coaching services at the Learning Centers can help you achieve your goals and build the skills you need for self-advocacy and independent, lifelong learning.

Make a Game Plan

Academic coaching can benefit students at any level, from first-years learning how to use a syllabus effectively to seniors and graduate students looking to better manage their schedules to accommodate classes, internships, interviews, and job fairs.

Our coaches can help you create a plan to navigate obstacles that arise throughout your academic career and build positive, useful habits that lead to academic and professional success. You'll learn how to: 

  • Conquer procrastination
  • Prepare for exams
  • Get organized
  • Study more effectively
  • Read more of what you read
  • And more

Choose Your Path

One-on-one appointments with a professional academic coach provide opportunities to collaborate around the content and structure of sessions, identify your unique learning strengths, develop individual plans for academic support, and promote self-confidence and independence. 

Group coaching sessions with a peer coach offer additional opportunities to learn new study strategies and develop your time management in groups of six students or less, along with individualized attention to become a more successful student and learner.

Completion coaching is offered for students who receive temporary grades in their courses. A coach will work with you to plan out and tackle completing your course in the allocated time. Group work coaching is also available for students who would like some guidance around working on group projects and assignments.
