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.

PASS | Peer Assisted Study Sessions

Peer Assisted Study Sessions

The PASS program gives students an opportunity to participate in a 3 or 4-hour, weekly study session facilitated by a peer coach in a virtual environment.

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

Science Learning Center (SLC) Appointment-Based Peer Tutoring

The Science Learning Center (SLC) provides appointment-based, small group tutoring for select groups of eligible students. 

Tutors are students who have taken the course at UM and earned an A- or better, so they have a strong understanding of the content and familiarity with the course structure/professors. You can meet with a tutor up to two times per week, per course.
