The act of learning and studying can seem like an elusive task. How does one study effectively? What techniques are used and how much time is needed to truly learn and understand material? In many cases students are not taught about effective learning and studying practices prior to entering college. As a result students either spend more time than is needed using ineffective techniques that don’t produce results, or give up on studying all together.
The focus of Academic Coaching is to help students to understand the process of studying and learning, identify effective studying and learning techniques, and explore success topics such as organization, time management, motivation, procrastination, and concentration.
No! We work with all undergraduate/cross-registered and graduate students- regardless of GPA.
That depends on you! We work with you to develop a customized experience depending on your needs and interests in covering certain topics. Some students work with us for a period of time and then return later in their academic career to refresh certain topics or just “check-in”, and some other students find that one coaching meeting is just what they need.
During your first meeting you and the Student Support Specialist will talk about your current academic habits. You’ll work to develop a plan of action that will outline important academic success topics and important RIT resources for you to work with. You will also start to identify and refine academic goals and the behaviors required of you to achieve them.
Students can make an appointment by contacting the ASC:
Students needing interpreting should submit requests through NTID Access Services. Please be sure to allow enough advance notice for Access Services to accommodate your request.
Please just let us know. You’ll be given the contact information of the Student Support Specialist you are scheduled to meet when you make the appointment. Please email, call, or stop by to let them know so that you can reschedule your appointment.
