Academic Coaching Specialists are ready to help the Obies this semester! We have the top tutors and academic coaches for Oberlin College students.

Why Choose Us?

Whether it is an athlete training for the next competition, a musician or dancer practicing for the next performance, or a business leader on the verge of the next big acquisition, working with a coach is the best way to stay focused. They provide guidance and encouragement, accountability and motivation to be your very best along the way. ACS coaches will help you achieve your academic goals, keeping you focused, inspired, and supported throughout the journey.

Looking for a Tutor?

Tutors at ACS are waiting to help Oberlin University students this semester. A tutor from Academic Coaching Specialists can help a student to get through a tough subject, challenging chapter or unclear material.

Sometimes, there can be multiple areas the student could use extra support in such as study strategies, note taking methods, and test taking techniques. These can apply to a wider area of academic life. Tutoring can be a stand-alone arrangement for one subject, used for several subjects, or in combination with academic coaching.

What About an Academic Coach?

Academic coaching is also available to Oberlin students, regardless of the subject. Unlike tutoring, academic coaching goes beyond just one subject area. Coaches will teach students how to become the masters of their time, manage their stress, get better grades, and build their confidence. We will Introduce new learning tools and strategies that create effective habits, leading to increased success both in and out of the classroom.

As with tutoring, the coach will meet with the student on a weekly basis. However, with coaching, the student will be required to do some outside reading or assignment between each session as assigned by the coach. The student and coach will meet at a mutually agreed upon time to review each week’s materials.  The two then work together, building a relationship that provides mentorship and guidance for the student.

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

  • learn time good management and study skills
  • find a healthy balance between social and academic life on campus
  • understand how to study and take effective notes for each class type
  • learn the steps and strategies to properly prepare for exams
  • break down large papers or assignments into manageable action items to be completed incrementally
  • overcome stagnation by focusing on goals and success
  • quickly bounce back from setbacks

Academic Coaching Specialists provide stability in this ever-changing environment

  • Coaches will walk through the semester with the student, adapting and overcoming any challenges that arise
  • Having a coach check in each week is a good way to stay accountable
  • Techniques taught in the program allow the student to stress less and become more efficient with their time and effort
  • The coach will be there when things get tough. They provide encouragement, advice and motivation.

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

IS ACADEMIC COACHING RIGHT FOR YOUR STUDENT?

Academic Coaching Specialists work with all types of students! Here are some students that we work with most frequently:

College Freshmen

Freshmen starting or continuing their first year are our most served customers. 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 experience. Oberlin 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.

Students with Learning Differences

Our academic coaching programs help students of all academic abilities to better utilize their strengths to overcome areas of challenge. 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.

Average & High Achieving Students

At Academic Coaching Specialists, we understand that every student learns differently and that there are many pathways to success.  This is why our personalized coaching is perfect for all students, even the highest of achievers that are consistently looking for ways to hone their skills and sharpen their competitive edge.

Students Who are Remote Learning

Taking an online or remote course? Academic Coaching Specialists can help students remain focused and engaged in these types of courses. Tutoring can be helpful if the course content is the issue. However, if the student feels generally overwhelmed or unable to determine when things are due, coaching might be the better option. Along with some incremental motivation, students taking multiple online classes usually find that working with a coach keeps them on top of their work and less stressed overall.  Our coaches will stay involved each week, making sure students are not overwhelmed or procrastinating on getting things completed

Students on Academic Probation

Students who find themselves on academic probation at Oberlin can take part in our Academic 911 program. This academic coaching program is designed to address the immediate issues, but also teaches how to avoid potential issues in the future. Further, it aims to break any bad habits of the past. Coaches will identify any individual problems, and make any necessary referrals as appropriate.
