The Office of Academic Advising is excited to announce Academic Skills Coaching for students at Meredith College. Many very smart students find themselves overwhelmed, when all they need to do is polish their study skills. Academic Skills Coaching is a new service which may make your student’s college experience more productive.
When most people think about coaching, traditionally they think about sports. Coaches lead the team, help develop workouts, create practice schedules, and provide encouragement. This combination of support helps team members prepare for the big game.
Academic coaches provide the same type of help for a student’s learning fitness. Academic Skills Coaching is designed to encourage students to become more self-aware through a better understanding of their strengths, academic goals, and proactive academic skills while providing encouragement along the way.
As different issues come up throughout each semester, there might be different topics a student would want to go over with an academic coach. Here’s a sample of what those themes might look like:
Academic Goal Setting
Strengths application in the classroom
Grade Evaluation and Tracking
Create and Implement Academic Action Plans
Making Better Use of Campus Resources
Prioritizing Assignments and Commitments
Academic Skills Coaching sessions are by appointment and students can schedule via the Academic Advising website meredith.edu/advising. For inquires, please email our Academic Coaches at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Office of Academic Advising at (919) 760-8809.
