Academic Coaching

Students often face a variety of challenges, changes and important decisions. Students from K-12 may struggle with time management, poor study skills and difficulties getting organized. College and graduate students may need help with studying more effectively or preparing for exams. Time management, test-taking techniques and speed reading are all useful skills for academic success.

A PFPA Academic Coach will help students use proven strategies to succeed in school. They can help an elementary school student with ADHD become more organized or help a graduate student successfully complete and defend his dissertation. Coaching can provide a student with a structure that will help them make consistent progress towards their goals, including learning how to make effective timelines and weekly actions lists. Coaching sessions will include looking at the student's overall quality of life to achieve more balance, manage stress and anxiety, and maintain good relationships with the student's family, peers and faculty.
