Academic Coaching

panoramaCX-L

Students often have difficulty adjusting to the demands and rigors of higher education.  Developing skills to sustain attention, manage academic assignments, learn actively, and stay on task can measurably improve student success.

The Academic Coaching Program teaches strategies that enable students to enhance their academic performance and provides support to help them stay on task.

Peer Academic Coaches are available to meet with students to discuss academic goals, develop study plans, and demonstrate different study strategies. Coaches provide guidance related to time management, avoiding procrastination, improving concentration, motivation, goal setting, reading strategies, and exam preparation strategies. Academic coaching is free to all Mason students.

Individual Academic Coaching is available in Counseling & Psychological Services, Student Union Building I, Suite 3129. Appointments may be made through our online scheduling program:
