As an Academic Coach, a tutor will help the student recognize how he or she best learns and operates in an academic environment. The coach will make sure the student learns the material in individual courses while also showing him or her that success in school can be a reality. The academic coach can teach and support study skills, time management, stress management, effective reading, note-taking, and test-taking.
Academic Coaches work with students in all kinds of situations, not just with students who are struggling academically. Some highly motivated, high-achieving students will have a coach to improve their learning efficiency.
