What is Academic Coaching?

Academic Coaching is a working partnership that focuses on the process of learning. Together with a professional coach, students examine their learning styles, habits of working, and current difficulties or barriers to success. Then together this team (coach and student) works to create and put in place more effective strategies. Students registered with SSD should see an academic coach for help with: 

  • Individualized learning strategies
  • Study habits
  • Time management
  • Project management
  • Task breakdown
  • Goal setting
  • Self-advocacy

Resources and Advice from Peers for Remote Learning

What is working for me:

"Even if the lectures aren’t live, I am trying to work on things for my classes around the time they used to be scheduled."

"Exercising is helping me to stay sane - especially with all of my ADHD energy!"

"With a planned internship in India now cancelled, commitment to movement on new projects, beyond school, has been helping me."

"I brought home my Michigan planner. It sounds so freshman year, but it works for me!"
