What is Academic Coaching?

What is Academic Coaching?

Academic coaching is a type of coaching that helps students develop skills to achieve academic success. Academic coaches work with students on a one-on-one basis, in groups, or in a classroom setting. Coaches help students develop skills such as time management, organization, and study skills.

The coach can be an outside professional who works with the student either at home or school. They can also be an adult who is familiar with the student's school and community environment and has strong relationships with teachers and other adults at the school.


How Can an Academic Coach Help Me and My Teen?

A coach's role is to make sure that a student is successful on all levels, not just in their academics, but also as a person, friend, and citizen of their school community. A coach can be a great resource for parents as well, helping them understand what is expected of their child in school and how to help them prepare for tests or assignments by practicing at home.

Academic coaches typically work with students in the following three areas:

  • Learning skills and materials that will help students succeed academically.

  • Creating a personalized study plan and implementing it.

  • Providing support to the student when they encounter setbacks or need an extra push in their studies or work.
