Peer academic coaches are available to help students address challenges in the following areas:

Time Management: Students are assisted in establishing and maintaining a daily schedule

Organization: Students learn how to break down large assignments and tasks into manageable steps

Procrastination: Students are assisted in establishing and staying on task with deadlines

Study Skills: Coaches connect students to enhanced study skills tips and tricks in note taking, test preparation strategies, active reading, and reducing text anxiety
