College Academic Coaching

In order to be successful in college, students need to develop study skills and habits that go beyond memorizing class content. Developing higher-level thinking skills and higher-level academic performance requires:

  • Accessing college resources
  • Developing self-advocacy and communication skills
  • Creating daily routines
  • Organizing backpacks, notebooks, papers and computer files
  • Implementing Time Management Systems
  • Tracking daily and long term assignments
  • Planning ahead for projects, exams and essays
  • Developing the ability to self-assess in order to make progress
  • Effectively preparing for tests
  • Creating effective notes and study guides
  • Learning techniques to stay focused and on task

Working with a college academic coach can help your student develop the habits, strategies, and tools that will make a big difference in the college experience. The transition to college can be stressful for many students as they learn to manage their time, balance demanding classes, develop independence and make new friends. For students who struggle or have learning differences, the demands of college can become overwhelming without additional support. I help neuro-diverse students and those with executive functioning challenges manage their time and workload while developing personalized strategies to make learning stick. Whether your student simply needs support through freshman year getting used to college life, or is struggling to keep up in upper-division classes, or needs resetting while on academic warning or probation, I can help them develop the skills and habits to stay on track or get back on track.

I provide 1-1 coaching that is nonjudgmental, unbiased, caring, and compassionate. By helping students gain self-awareness of their learning strengths and weaknesses. I help students practice and develop study strategies, time management, and organizational skills. My process prioritizes incremental change. Together, we navigate available resources as well as develop habits, self- advocacy, awareness, and work together to become a more intentional student.
