Peer Academic Coach Program
Students wishing to improve their study skills may benefit from working on a 1-on-1 basis with a peer academic coach. Through weekly one-hour meetings, peer coaches help students create their own action plan by identifying deadlines and priorities for the week. Peer academic coaches are available to help students address challenges in the following areas:
Time Management: Students are assisted in establishing and maintaining a daily schedule
Organization: Students learn how to break down large assignments and tasks into manageable steps
Procrastination: Students are assisted in establishing and staying on task with deadlines
Study Skills: Coaches connect students to enhanced study skills tips and tricks in note taking, test preparation strategies, active reading, and reducing text anxiety
