Academic Coaching is a personalized, one-on-one experience designed to aid students with the “nuts and bolts” of academic success.

Trained, academically successful Heidelberg students serve in a peer role as Academic Coaches to assist their fellow Heidelberg students with skills such as academic planning and goal setting, study skills, and time management. They also serve as resource and referral guides, and offer information to students regarding further advising, career, and academic support services.​

Academic Coaching Frequently Asked Questions

Most students can benefit from academic coaching, but you should particularly consider visiting an academic coach if your academic skills (note-taking, testing, active listening skills, study skills, and/or time management) are beginning to impact your confidence and/or success in one or more courses.

What if the listed Academic Coaching hours don’t match up with my free time? Simply fill out this form! We’ll be in touch soon.

At a bare minimum, note-taking supplies will be helpful! If you have particular questions or concerns you want to address with your Academic Coach, consider writing them down and bringing them to the session.
