    What can a coach help me with? 

    Coaches can help you develop skills and strategies useful for academic success at UWEC. While a coach can help with nearly anything, our most popular areas include the following: 

    • How to study
    • Note-taking strategies
    • Time management
    • How to talk with professors
    • Goal setting 
    • Succeeding in online courses 
    • Reading strategies

    What are coaching appointments like? 

    Coaching sessions typically last 45 minutes to 1 hour, but there is flexibility based on your needs and your coach's schedule. After you have signed up for a coaching session, you and your coach will meet for your first appointment to see what areas you might be looking to improve. Together, you'll work to set goals and find strategies that can help you be successful. 

    Where can I find coaching? 

    General locations and hours for Peer Tutoring and Peer Academic Coaching are as follows:
