Academic Coaching and Learning Strategy Consulting

Student and coachLearning Strategy Consulting

The ASC provides you with Personalized Academic Assistance

We believe it is important for students to have the opportunity for one-on-one interaction with a professional to address their specific academic issues.  The following individual services are provided to help you achieve your academic goals.

If you're interested in regularly scheduled meetings to help you as you strive to reach your academic goals, then an Academic Coach is also available to assist you.

Learning Strategy Consulting is available for students who want feedback on their study skills and to develop strategies for improving their academic success.

For assessment, complete the Study Behavior Inventory (pdf) (SBI) at the ASC. The survey highlights your study skill strengths, identifies areas of academic difficulty, and gives recommendations for improvement.  Then schedule an appointment for an interpretation and application of the results.  We also have other assessment surveys available, which are used upon the recommendation of an ASC professional.

Lori McGregor, our learning strategy consultant, can help you evaluate your study skills, define your challenges, and develop strategies for academic success.
