“Academic Coaching” can be defined as a working partnership that focuses on the process of learning. During these sessions, students are taught how to examine their learning styles, work habits, and current barriers to success. Together, we work to identify the best strategies students should utilize to achieve academic success. These strategies include understanding how to effectively manage their time, organize their materials, self-advocate, plan and execute tasks, and utilize test-studying and test-taking skills. This process is highly meaningful to students as it includes a supportive relationship and personal accountability.
