Through individual meetings, our trained faculty coaches work with students to establish academic goals as they engage in a process of experimentation and practice. Coaching is student-driven, based on each student’s definition of academic success. Coaches serve as facilitators for that success – supporting students to draw upon their own self-understanding and resourcefulness to create systems that will work for them, as individuals. Coaches encourage progress and attainment of goals. Depending upon individual needs, coaches may also provide education about executive function and ADHD.
Students come to Coaching Services for support with self-management related skills including the following:
- Planning and prioritizing
- Remembering to do intended tasks
- Getting started
- Sustaining motivation
- Managing long term assignments
- Following through
- Balancing academics and social life
