Study Skills Coaching is a collaborative partnership designed to enhance students’ overall well-being and academic performance. Regular meetings with a coach help students identify and implement personal solutions for overcoming academic barriers. Our coaches help students recognize what it takes to reach their full academic potential and to equip them with the strategies, supportive partnership, and personal accountability necessary to achieve academic success.

While coaches will customize sessions to fit students’ individual needs, common topics of discussion include:

  • Concentration and Memory
  • Time management
  • Test preparation
  • Goal-setting
  • Note-taking
  • Organization
  • Procrastination
  • Reading Comprehension
  • Navigating Blackboard
  • Using Online Learning Resources

Benefits of Coaching

  • Improved performance
  • Developing new and effective habits
  • Learning to make informed decisions
  • Accountability
  • Research shows that students who meet with an academic coach regularly achieve higher academic success
