10.9.2. Academic Coaching

Academic coaching provides Oglethorpe students with a chance to work individually with a professional staff member in the ASC to help improve their academic skills, confidence, and performance. The academic coach empowers students to become successful and self-directed learners. Working one-on-one with an academic coach can help students identify and utilize new learning tools and strategies in order to help students meet their academic and personal goals. Each week coaches help students create their own action plan by identifying priorities and deadlines for the week.

Academic coaching is open to all undergraduate (TU and ADP) students. To ensure the full benefits of this experience, students are asked to commit to the following over at least one complete semester: 30 minute weekly individual coaching sessions and 1 hour weekly peer tutoring or general writing tutoring.
