Academic Success Coaching

Academic Success Coaching uses a metacognitive approach for learning to build and refine skills for continued success in college. We assist students with identifying their learning and study styles and then tailor individual success strategies to match. We can help navigate college systems, provide referrals to other offices, assist with using various college software, and offer sessions focusing on time management and organization, note-taking, reading strategies, and test preparation.


 Why should I use Academic Success Coaching?

We focus on your strengths and priorities to help you reach your goals with insider college knowledge. We work with you to develop an individualized plan to build your academic skills to serve you at LBCC and beyond.
