Academic Coaching & Tutoring
In addition to our Academic Support programs, including peer, writing, and organizational tutoring, students also can work with an academic success coach on a weekly, bi-weekly, or one-off basis. The academic success coaches are professional staff members who mentor students by designing and implementing an individualized plan for academic success.
To schedule a meeting, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and simply say that you want to schedule an academic coaching appointment. One of our coaches will reply within 24 hours. You can also stop by between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and one of our staff members or student assistants can help you schedule an academic coaching appointment. On evenings and weekends, sending an email request is best.
Learn Valuable and Transformative Skills
Through these coaching sessions, students work with the academic success specialist to improve skills that may not be taught in the classroom:
- Effective Time Management
- Study Skills and Note-taking
- Stress Management
- Critical Reading
- Test Preparation and Test-taking
Are you struggling with a paper or looking to improve your writing skills? The mission of the Lebanon Valley College Center for Academic Success and Exploratory Majors is to provide students with the tools, techniques, and confidence necessary to become successful communicators and writers. We do this by creating a comfortable environment in which students and tutors work together at improving writing and thinking across the curriculum.
Do you want higher grades or to improve your study skills? Peer Tutoring offers free assistance to students who want to improve their academic performance. Tutors can be provided for most 100- and 200-level courses offered. Peer Tutors are successful, upper-level students who are trained to help students clarify assignments, understand the subject matter, prepare homework, review homework, prepare for exams, review exams, improve study techniques, and improve time management. Tutors are available for individual and group sessions. Please keep in mind that tutors are students themselves, and it is important to be flexible with appointments if you are looking to receive help.
Organizational tutors are students who mentor, model, and teach peers effective and healthy time management and organizational skills as well as study habits in order to function independently as a competent and successful student.
