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

PASS | Peer Assisted Study Sessions

The PASS program gives students an opportunity to participate in a 3-hour, weekly study session facilitated by a peer coach in a virtual environment.

Our peer coaches support learning approaches, academic strategies, and executive functioning skills (project management, study skills, etc.), and offer studying accountability. A typical session begins with goal setting, incorporates breaks, and ends with a moment of reflection and planning.
