Academic Coaching

The Academic Coaching Program seeks to heighten student awareness of their unique learning processes and challenges, and then how to use that knowledge to maximize the efficiency of time spent in class or studying. This is achieved through assessment of the student’s current studying abilities at their point of intake to the program, and then a series of weekly ongoing meetings with the Student Success Coach, Blaine Ganter.

Who should be referred to the Academic Coaching Program?

Students in need of assistance with:

  • Scheduling and Time Management
  • Note Taking Skills
  • Test Taking Strategies
  • Classroom Etiquette
  • Goal Setting and Prioritization
  • Academic Reading
  • Critical Thinking

What happens after I refer a student?

Blaine Ganter will communicate to the student regarding the referral and intake process for Academic Coaching. If the student is interested in the program, an intake meeting will be scheduled. During the intake meeting, Blaine and the student will discuss the learner’s unique challenges and come up with an agreed upon plan for the learner to address their current academic circumstances.
