Success Coaching

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.

Success coaches help students with “soft” skills such as learning strategies and college-life management skills applicable to a variety of subjects and situations.  They can also help students to develop strategies that promote success in college, the workplace and life in general

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 the goals into 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.

How do I schedule a coaching appointment?

If you are a student, send an email to and let them know that you would like to talk.
