Academic Coaching provides support and assistance in improving your academic skills & performance. Coaches can help you mitigate and overcome perceived barriers, identify areas of strength and weakness, devise a personalized plan of action for you, and more.

Live, interactive one-on-one sessions with an academic coach are available by appointment online or in-person. During the session, you'll work with an academic coach to identify barriers to success and develop a plan for overcoming those barriers. For more information on how to make either an in-person or an online Coaching session appointment, please visit Academic Coaching page.
The Student Academic Success Skills (or S.A.S.S.) video series are pre-recorded video versions of the live academic skills workshops we offer. Not only do these videos allow you to learn the content at your own pace, but they also offer most of the same handouts (pdf format which you can print out and keep with you) and activity opportunities from our in-person workshops so you can still practice the skills that you are learning.
Each topic is broken down into short easy to watch videos that guide you through the entire workshop presentation at your leisure. For more information on how to access the pre-recorded videos, please visit Academic Skills Video Series.
