Academic Coaching

Academic Coaching is offered in the Office of Academic Services by way of one-on-one meetings with a professional academic coach at no additional charge. Our coaches begin their academic coaching sessions by first assessing the student’s approach to learning. Once the student and coach identify areas for improvement, new and modified study methods are introduced and implemented; these methods include study strategies, like metacognition, time management, and active learning, that help each student maximize study time, efficiency, and retention of information. In the process, students gain confidence while adopting a growth mindset that inspires success and achievement in their academic journey at Providence College.
