Lauren Arvisias, B.S., M.S.

College Academic Coach

Lauren earned her Master’s of Science degree in Counseling with a focus in Student Development in Higher Education and her Bachelor’s degree in History and English from Central Connecticut State University. She is currently the Tutoring Resource Center Coordinator at Western Connecticut State University where she hires, trains, and supervises a staff of 20 undergraduate peer tutors, primarily in the Arts & Sciences, as well as run study skills workshops, and is coordinating a pilot peer academic coaching program for students on academic probation.

As an academic coach in the CCSU Learning Center, she used a holistic, strengths-based approach to coach at-risk and first-year students one-on-one and in small groups. She is passionate about helping students successfully navigate college life and become independent, strategic learners. Lauren has also worked in academic advising, academic counseling for Division I student-athletes, and has taught a number of first-year introduction courses and study skills workshops.

Most weekends, you can find Lauren out hiking with her dog Ash, doing yoga, gardening, or reading. She loves all things Harry Potter and playing strategy and tabletop board games.
