Affordable Academic Coaching in Gainesville, GA

Hey Gainesville! Academic Coaching Specialists are here to help save the school year! We offer the most affordable academic coaching in Gainesville, GA.

For students who had some trouble staying on top of things last year, now is the perfect time to look at academic coaching. An academic coach is similar to an athletic coach because they provide encouragement, instruction and motivation. They will work with the student to become their best, giving feedback on their performance and progress every step of the way.

Coaches are matched with students based on learning/teaching styles and personality types. Each week, the coach meets with the student to go over material, strategize next steps, and encourage the student to be their best in the week ahead. 


Our college academic coaching program focuses on supporting students through organization, time management, goal setting and accountability.


Has your student found themselves on academic probation or falling behind in their college coursework?  Our expert educators can help! 


Our high school academic coaches teach students how to organize, prioritize and utilize effective study, note and test taking strategies.


If your high school student is stressed with their demanding course load or needs help getting back on top of a challenging subject, give us a call.

3 Questions to Ask When Hiring an ACADEMIC COACH

When looking to hire an academic coach, there are many things to consider. We recommend these 3 main things to look for:

1. Consistency

Make sure the coach will meet the student regularly and consistently. Ensure there is a policy in place for missed meetings and how things will be adjusted if a meeting has to be missed. This may not seem like a big deal, but one of the things academic coaches should be doing is training their student to “show up” and follow through. Coaches need to lead by example with this. Students who find regular excuses for why they cannot meet typically do not make progress on their academic goals.

2. Communication

Parents want to know that what the coach and student are doing is working. Ask how progress will be tracked and communicated throughout the duration of the arrangement. Coaches should provide open and regular communication with both the parents and their students, so that neither feels like they are being “left in the dark”.

3. Cost/Value

Do your homework with regard to cost and value. Many academic coaches will offer hourly rates, but make sure you understand what all that includes. Also consider that changing habits takes time. Be wary of a coach who says they can help your student in a few sessions. A quality program is comprehensive and takes into account the time it takes to learn and apply new study techniques, demonstrate progress, and develop trust between the student and the coach.
