Academic coaching

Need some tips on how to handle tests? Is Canvas confusing? Having trouble organizing all your assignments? Do you wonder where all your time for studying went? We can help! Make an appointment for Academic Coaching and get assistance from professional staff in Academic Support!

Academic Coaching is personalized student support for students seeking assistance. Academic Coaches can help with:

  • Organization and time management
  • Understanding your syllabus
  • Navigating Canvas
  • Note taking and study skills
  • Goal setting
  • Test Anxiety
  • Presentation tips and tricks
  • Academic and social life balance

Academic Coaching offers strategies and support for your academic success. Please note that Academic Coaches are not Academic Advisors. Conversations with advisors focus on planning curriculum and meeting requirements for graduation, while Academic Coaching allows space for everything in between, focusing on the areas listed above.

All students are allowed up to two hours of Academic Coaching a week, separate from tutoring time. Most appointments are 30 minutes or one hour.
