ACADEMIC COACHING VS TUTORING FOR STUDENTS AT KENT STATE UNIVERSITY

Academic coaching is available for all Kent State University students, regardless of the subject. Let’s take a look at academic coaching vs tutoring for students at Kent State University.

Academic Coaching Specialists are ready to jump in to help the Golden Flashes this semester!

Tutors are subject-matter experts that are excellent resources for students who are challenged in a particular course.  Unlike tutoring, academic coaching goes beyond just one subject area, where students will learn how to become the masters of their time, build their confidence, and academically soar!   Find out which one is best for your student by taking our brief needs analysis survey.  

Have you considered an academic coach?  Here’s how it works…

An experienced educator will work with the student on a weekly basis, introducing new learning tools and strategies that create effective habits, leading to increased success in the classroom and beyond.  Student and coach will meet either in-person or remotely, at a mutually agreed upon time to review each week’s materials. The student will be required to do some outside reading or assignment between each session as assigned by the coach. Working together, they build a relationship that provides mentorship and guidance. This enables the student to move toward becoming more independent in their learning.

How Academic Coaching Helps Students at Kent State University

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

  • learn good time management and study skills
  • understand how to study for each class
  • learn the steps and strategies to effectively prepare for exams
  • take the pain out of the process of writing a paper
  • begin to work on small tasks each day that will lead to overall success

Does your student lack accountability and follow-through? Academic Coaching Specialists have got students at Kent State University covered!

  • They’ll never wonder about how to start that paper
  • They won’t stress about how to study for an upcoming test or exam
  • Skipping class will be a thing of the past
  • Note taking will be a breeze

NEARLY 1/3 OF COLLEGE FRESHMEN DROP OUT BEFORE THEIR SOPHOMORE YEAR

IS ACADEMIC COACHING RIGHT FOR YOUR STUDENT?

College Freshmen

Freshmen starting or continuing their first year are our most common clients. We find that the best approach to academic coaching is a proactive one. Starting from the top, we work with students on what they already know from high school and build on those skills to create an even better college champion. Kent State University students who start their freshman year with academic coaching 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

Students who find themselves on academic probation at Kent State University 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 out of the hole and 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 if appropriate.

Online or Remote Learning

Does your student hate taking online or remote courses? Academic Coaching Specialists can help students at Kent State University remain focused and engaged in these types of courses. Tutoring is not always the best answer for these types of courses, as the material 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 to see a vast improvement.  Providing accountability and a step-by-step plan, you may find you actually can enjoy an asynchronous course! Our coaches will stay involved each week, making sure you are not overwhelmed or procrastinating on getting things completed.
