ACADEMIC COACHES AND TUTORS AT BOWLING GREEN STATE UNIVERSITY
Academic Coaching Specialists are ready to fly in and help the Falcons this semester! Providing academic coaches and tutors at Bowling Green State University, ACS is your number one choice for academic help!
What is Tutoring?
Tutoring services can help students with a particular subject or challenging concept. Students will seek out a tutor when they identify an issue or challenge in a particular class or subject. The tutor meets with the student, initially gaining an understanding of what the problem or misunderstanding is. They then explain the concept, formula, method, etc. in a different way than the professor, identifying where the student is stuck or making mistakes. Next, the tutor provides correction and guidance to get the student to be able to work through material independently and arrive at correct answers or comprehension of subject or assignment.
What is Academic Coaching?
Academic coaching is a comprehensive approach that assists students across their entire curriculum and includes things like time management and study strategies. Academic coaching introduces learning tools and approaches that create successful habits, leading to increased efficiency in the classroom and beyond.
Note that tutoring and coaching are not mutually exclusive, and can be used together to create a strong support system for your BGSU student.
Academic Coaching empowers students to improve in areas such as:
- Understanding how to use blocks of time effectively
- Finding a good balance between academic and non-academic activities
- Improving focus and increasing efficiency
- Learning how to study and take notes to get the most benefit for each class type
- Identifying the steps and strategies to prepare for exams and large projects
- Rooting out any habits that lead to procrastination
- Processing the steps and timeline involved in writing a college level paper
- Improving self esteem and motivation
NEARLY 1/3 OF COLLEGE FRESHMEN DROP OUT BEFORE THEIR SOPHOMORE YEAR
WHAT TYPES OF STUDENTS CAN BENEFIT FROM HAVING AN ACADEMIC COACH?
The best approach to academic coaching is a proactive one. Whether your student sailed through high school or hit a few bumps along the way, arming them with the skills needed to make a smooth transition to college is an investment that pays off.
It takes a very organized and driven person to be a successful student athlete in college. While the athletic coaches will help to find success on the field or court, victory in the classroom starts with an academic coach from Academic Coaching Specialists. Our coaches understand what it takes to remain eligible to play, and are able to help the student balance their commitments to their team, their sport, and their education.

We’re experienced in working with students who have: ADHD, ADD, Executive Functioning Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Traumatic Brain Injury, and other various processing and learning differences.
