Academic coaching is a partnership between the student and their professional academic coach that focuses on the process of learning. By concentrating on the student’s unique strengths and individual learning style, students become more motivated, productive, and successful.
Students diagnosed with Executive Function Disorder, ADHD, learning disabilities and anxiety can show great improvement from academic coaching such as more effective study strategies, increased motivation, less procrastination, and more consistent homework completion. Academic coaches teach students organization, time management, note-taking, prioritizing, and effective study strategies. ACA students learn to be accountable leading to greater confidence and independence.
At ACA, we use our student centered, reactive approach to teach effective skills and strategies using their authentic assignment. Although each session is tailored to the individual needs of each student, they follow a similar format.
Many students who come to us have been using maladaptive habits for quite sometime before becoming an ACA student. Our job is to help students break those bad habits and replace them with new, productive ones.
