Academic Coaching provides students with the opportunity to work in a one-on-one setting with a professional staff member in the CAS to enhance their academic skills, gain confidence, and improve performance. The Academic Coaching process will assess the student's current situation and provide an atmosphere of collaboration to develop an individualized success plan. We work with students to develop metacognitive, critical thinking skills that can help to simplify the learning process and overcome academic obstacles.
