Are you ready for an Academic Coach?

The term “Academic Coach” has two distinct meanings.

If you are a student, an academic coach is someone who helps you with your homework, study skills, time-management skills,  reading strategies, note-taking, test-taking and assists in other areas of need.

If you are a teacher, an academic coach works with the willing to provide effective classroom instruction and strategies that will improve student achievement. The coach is not a supervisor of any type. Instead, the coach is a peer that has one foot in the classroom usually, and another helping others.

The fact is you’re probably ready for an academic coach. The world of education moves very fast. Students need the extra help if they are expected to meet the rigorous standards they must.  For teachers, students only get one chance to be the age to learn the subject matter you teach, so why not make it the best it can be?
