Academic Coaching is a personalized, one-on-one meeting with a trained academic coach who can help students improve their skills and performance. Working with an academic coach can help students study smarter by developing skills in Note-Taking, Test-Taking, Memorization Techniques and Time Management skills. An Academic Coach can also recommend students to receive tutoring.
The Academic Coach creates a graphic plan to assist students in following the recommendations as outlined below:
Academic coaching works best by addressing the learning needs of students who have been identified in the early alert process and need additional assistance beyond tutoring or advising services. Once identified, the goal of the Academic Coach is to contact individual students and begin the process of engagement.
Currently, the targeted student population for Academic Coaching goals are those students who have been identified through the Early Alert process. Once identified, the goal will be to offer each mentored student in the series access to a specifically tailored program unique to the individual student. This program will include a variety of planned workshops geared around the student’s needs. For example, students who are doing poorly or failing because of poor Time-Management Skills should be taught how to prioritize and use Intention Statements in order to avoid procrastination, since skill deficit (whether it is managing one’s time or understanding course work) is the number one cause of procrastination. Students rarely postpone projects they are able to complete with ease.
Individual workshops and written material are available to each student in the Academic Coaching Program. The names of our workshops are listed below; however, each workshop can be tailored to meet the students’ individual needs.
The workshops include:
