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

PASS | Peer Assisted Study Sessions

These collaborative sessions help students develop learning strategies, establish healthy study habits, and cultivate self-advocacy. The Spring/Summer 2019 schedule begins the week of May 20th in the Shapiro Library, Room 2124.

  • Wednesdays    1:00-5:00pm
