What is an Academic Coach?
Academic coaches are trained and certified peers who work with you to improve your college reading, learning, and studying skills. Your academic coach will help you determine your personal learning style by assessing your strengths and weaknesses. Together you will devise a plan for organizing your schedule and developing a reading and learning process that will help you succeed in college and beyond. Your coach will help you implement your plan and coach you to stay on track with scheduled follow-up meetings.
