ACADEMIC COACH OR TUTOR NEAR STARK STATE COLLEGE

If you’re looking for an academic coach or tutor near Stark State College, you’ve come to the right place.  Our team of passionate educators are available to help your student this semester!

Academic coach vs tutor, which one is right for your student? 

If your student’s challenges are isolated to a particular subject, a private tutor will offer them the guidance they need to understand their coursework and apply it to their studies.  However, if your student’s difficulties extend beyond a particular class, an academic coach would make for a better fit.  With an academic coach, students will learn how to effectively prepare for exams and papers, take good notes in all types of classes, build confidence, and create strategies to become the masters of their time! Our experts will introduce new learning tools and ideas that create good habits, leading to increased success, both in and out of the classroom.  Interested in learning more, take our brief needs analysis survey. 

How will an academic coach help your Stark State College student succeed?

Each week, the assigned coach will work with the student, either remotely or in-person.  The student may be required to do some outside reading or assignment between each session as assigned by their coach. These are specifically designed to help the student grow and see weekly progress. The student and coach then work together on learning goals. This provides mentorship and guidance for the student as they work toward becoming more independent in their learning.

Working one-on-one with an academic coach will provide the necessary support for students to:

  • better manage their time
  • improve their note & study skills
  • effectively prepare for tests and exams
  • reduce pain of writing papers
  • create positive group work experiences
  • stop procrastinating

Could your student benefit from improved accountability and follow-through? Academic Coaching Specialists has their back. 

  • We’ll help reduce stress when studying for an upcoming test or exam
  • We’ll help them become masters of their time, while overcoming temptations to procrastinate and skip class
  • Our programs create more efficient learners, so student’s have more free time to enjoy non-academic activities

WHAT TYPES OF STUDENTS WORK WITH AN ACADEMIC COACH?

First-Year Students

First year students starting or continuing are our most common clients. We find that the best approach to college is a proactive one. Starting from the top, we work with students on what they already know from high school or previous college semesters, and build upon those skills. Stark State students who begin their freshman year with an academic coach find they are much more prepared and ahead of their peers. They are also less stressed and find they have more free time to enjoy non-academic activities.

Academic Probation

Situations can get sticky. Students who find themselves on academic probation at Stark State can take part in our Academic 911 program. This academic coaching program is designed to address the immediate problems in order to get the student back in good standing. Further, it teaches how to avoid potential issues in the future and strives to break any bad habits of the past. Coaches will identify any individual problems, and make any necessary referrals for tutoring or suggest other campus resources where appropriate.

Online or Remote Learning

Trouble with online or remote courses? Academic Coaching Specialists can also help Stark State students remain focused and engaged in their virtual or hybrid classes. Tutoring is not always the best option for these types of courses, as the content is not typically the problem. Rather, the ability to see things laid out and in order, along with some incremental motivation, is usually all that is needed for students to see a vast improvement.  Providing accountability and a step-by-step plan, students will begin to see how online courses can be successfully navigated. Our coaches will stay involved each week, making sure you are not overwhelmed or procrastinating on getting things completed.
