Academic Success Coaching

Academic Success Coaches work with students to develop skills and proficiencies necessary for academic success. All students who request an individual or group tutor are required to schedule a 45-minute coaching session on a topic of their choice. Topics include test-taking strategies, time management, learning styles interpretation, etc. Coaching sessions, however, are not limited to students who request a tutor. Any VWCC student can schedule a session.

Coaching Topics

  • Learning styles/VARK Interpretation
  • Online classes/study strategies
  • General study strategies/techniques
  • Multiple-choice test skills/Test anxiety
  • Math hints/tips
  • Note-taking strategies
  • Time management/scheduling
  • Self-motivation

To sign up for a coaching session, contact the Academic Link at 857-6442.
