How do I schedule an Academic Coaching session?
*If you are a distance learner, you can schedule an on-line session by contacting Allyson Gardner.*
What is Academic Coaching?
Academic Coaching is a collaborative and interactive process with the ultimate goal of assisting you in developing a personalized plan for achieving academic success. An Academic Coach will listen to your needs and concerns and work closely with you to develop academic goals and suggest tools, resources, and strategies to assist in reaching those goals. Topics discussed during academic coaching are based on your needs but often might include issues such as time management, goal setting, and learning new study skills. The actual length of the Academic Coaching session depends on your needs, however, all sessions are scheduled for one hour in order to allow enough time.
Who are the Academic Coaches?
Our Academic Coaches are students just like you from various majors and colleges and at different classifications. They have all learned strategies to be successful in college and have been trained on resources here at UNT. They are here to help you develop your own strategies for success and connect you to resources that may be helpful. To read a biography of the coaches visit appointment manager and click on their name.
When and where do Academic Coaching sessions occur?
Academic Coaching session times depend upon coaching schedules. Generally, there are coaches available between 11am and 7pm Monday through Friday during the school year and 10am to 3pm during the summer. However, this can vary by day. As Academic Coaching is a collaborative process it is best done in person. In person sessions are available in the Learning Center, Sage Hall 170, or Discovery Park Room C102A (search for "John Manzano" for Discovery Park). Online coaching is available for distance learners and students with extenuating circumstances that prevent them from coming to campus. To schedule an online session, please contact Allyson Gardner. Please note that for an online session to occur you will need, at the minimum, a working microphone and speakers on your computer.
