Academic Coaching, Group Tutoring, Study Tools

Academic Coaching

Working hard in high school does not always prepare you for the pace, volume and complexity of a Pitzer College education. Academic coaching is one way to personalize your education and help you stay on track academically.

An academic coach focuses on helping you with learning strategies and life management skills which, in turn, empowers you to successfully manage academic demands.

Academic coaching is a working partnership between you and a professional academic coach focusing on the process of learning. You will be able to examine your learning styles, strengths, habits with school work and time management while addressing current difficulties or barriers to success.  Academic coaching is open to all Pitzer students. 

If you are interested please e-mail [email protected] or schedule an appointment.
