Academic Advising & Success Resources

Success Coaching

While tutoring focuses on support in a specific subject, Academic Coaching is a skill-based approach focused on growth and accountability. Students meet with the Student Success Coordinator on a one-on-one basis throughout the semester to discuss goals, obstacles, successes, academic planning, etc. and talk about important success tips.

Topics that may be covered in Success Coaching include: 
  • Goal setting
  • Time management
  • Study skills
  • Test taking skills
  • Academic planning
  • Classroom skills (note-taking, reading comprehension, learning styles)
  • Appropriate campus involvement
  • Personal motivation
  • Personal support & accountability

Success Coaching allows students to learn important academic and life skills and set their own pace regarding accountability needs. Students meet one-on-one with a Success Coach to discuss their personal obstacles, opportunities, and goals. If acted upon, the tips discussed in Coaching can help students in all of their classes and beyond.
