What is academic coaching?

Academic coaching is a process in which a student wishing to improve their performance and an academic coach work in a one-on-one setting to develop learning skills. Together with the academic coach, the student examines their expectations, attitudes, beliefs, motivations, behaviors and external challenges to identify opportunities for improvement. The goal of coaching is to instill new perspectives and strategies that allow students to perform with more insight, efficiency and effectiveness.

Areas for discussion include but are not limited to: note taking, time management, prioritization and study habits.
