Academic Coaching is a working partnership that focuses on the process of learning. Partnering with a professional coach, students will examine their learning styles, habits of working, and current difficulties or barriers to success. Then together this team (coach and student) works to create and put in place more effective strategies for success. The aim is to heighten awareness of what it takes to achieve academic success and anchor the student with new strategies, a supportive relationship, and personal accountability.
