CLE Academic Coaching

Academic Coachingundefined

Academic Coaches meet with students individually to strengthen the skills needed to be successful in any course. Personalized coaching is available to students by appointment, onsite or online, and walk-ins are accommodated as possible. Coaches provide students with semester-long support in developing skills like using a planner, developing a study plan, avoiding procrastination, reading college-level textbooks, managing time more effectively, or improving communication.
