ACADEMIC COACHING

I offer individualized, strengths-based coaching for graduate, undergraduate, and high school students who feel like they could benefit from additional support in school or in their professional work.  As a former high school Environmental Science teacher, I work with all learners and am equipped to provide additional support and resources for those living with a concussion, chronic illness, neurodiversity, and/or a learning disability.  My goal as an academic coach is to serve as a non-judgmental accountability partner who supports your success as a learner.

Together, we will:

  • Develop systems for scheduling of time and assignments

  • Prioritize workload and organize materials

  • Identify goals and break them down into smaller action steps

  • Track progress on tasks and goals

  • Review performance and make adjustments to the plan as needed

  • Discuss available accommodations 

I strive to:

  • Cultivate a supportive working relationship

  • Foster growth

  • Co-create a vision of hope

  • Identify and utilize strengths

  • Deliver appropriate feedback

  • Build confidence and autonomy
