Academic Coaching

Academic coaching is an exploration and discovery process that enables students to see themselves from a fresh perspective. Just like a coach in any sport, the academic coach’s goal is to help students perform to the best of their abilities.
Ms. Elizabeth McWilliams and Mr. Matthew Kirk, the academic coaches, can help you if you are looking for any of the following:

  • Regularly scheduled, one-on-one meetings
  • Assistance in organizing and planning your semester
  • Someone to keep you accountable to your academic plans
  • Help with specific academic issues (test-taking, time management, etc…)
  • Referral to other appropriate campus resources

Appointments usually last from 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on your need. You can schedule appointments on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis. The focus and purpose of these one-on-one meetings is to provide:
  • Discovery – how you learn
  • Structure – organizational skills
  • Support – goal setting and encouragement
  • Feedback – progress and growth

Please complete this Coaching Request Form and a Coach will be in touch with you to set up an appointment. We look forward to seeing you
