Academic Success Coaching

Academic success coaching is a relatively new modality in the field of Learning Assistance that provides students with key information and strategies to identify, manage, and reach their goals leading to academic, professional and personal success.

Academic success coaches help students with academic skills  and college-life management skills applicable to a variety of subjects and situations. Coaches will work individually with students to do an assessment of learning to identify each students's unique needs.

Who can benefit from Success Coaching?

Any student at any point in college – who wants to get the most out of their college experience. 

What to expect?

Each session is different and unique to the student. The coach and the student mutually decide on the goals of the session. The coach helps the student break down their goals into achievable parts, and suggests strategies the student can apply to reach the goals. 

Does coaching require a long term commitment?

No. Students have the option of a one-time session or consecutive weekly sessions.  It is recommended that students schedule a minimum of three consecutive sessions but appointments can be terminated at any time during the semester once the student feels they have been helped.
