Academic Coaching

The AAC defines academic coaching as a one-on-one student interaction with a coach, helping students recognize and achieve their academic goals and reach self-efficacy in a safe space. Students should seek academic coaching in order to identify and work to remove the barriers to their academic success.

Requesting Coaching

Individual appointments can be scheduled for academic coaching. Students are encouraged to observe their own learning process. Increased proficiency in fundamental skills is achieved by exploring the student's strengths and by applying the appropriate techniques recommended by learning theorists. All students are welcome.

If you are interested in receiving academic coaching, consider your various options.
