Academic coaches offer assistance with academic skills such as time management and study strategies.
Academic coaches are not content experts but are a more experienced peer who can help you adjust to the expectations of rigorous college expectations. For example, rather than helping you understand your math homework, a coach might help you plan time to do your homework and connect you with a math tutor. They can also help you succeed in classes that do not have a tutor by going over your syllabus with you, helping you write emails to your professor, and providing insight into general study habits. Academic coaches are especially helpful if you’d like to do better in all your classes, not just one specific course.
Your academic coach will meet with you individually, as frequently or infrequently as you prefer. Most clients meet with their coach once a week, but you can also schedule just one appointment, Coaching sessions are usually about 30 minutes in length.

- Time management

- Active reading
- Goal setting
