Time Management

Academic success coaches assist students in developing their hourly, daily, weekly, quarter, and yearly calendars and schedules with specific and attainable time blocks with academic, professional, and personal goals and tasks listed. We assist students in brainstorming what tasks they need to prioritize and guide students in organizing their assignments and responsibilities.

Goal Setting and Motivation

We guide students through concept mapping, vision boarding, and long/short-term goal setting. We ask students to uncover their “why.” Why are they at an institution of higher learning? Why are they seeking a higher education degree and more opportunities? Knowing their “why” can assist students in recognizing what motivates them and keeps them going. Students learn how to break down their bigger goals into smaller tasks.
