Personal Academic Coaching
Coaching for College Success
When you hear the word "coaching," you might think of sports, music, or acting coaches. But coaches are also experts known for working in many fields, like business, where they use proven techniques to help people achieve their full potential. Here at Montgomery College, Academic Coaching is open to any student taking credit or non-credit classes at MC and can be helpful for students in any major.Request a Personal Academic Coach
What can you do with a personal Academic Coach?
Your personal Academic Coach will help you think about your academic goals and help you make plans to achieve them. If you request a one-on-one coach, you'll create a schedule to meet by phone, online, or in-person, whatever works best for you. During your regular coaching sessions, your ATPA Coach can help you work on:
- Creating a personalized academic success plan
- Balancing school, work, home, and other commitments
- Setting goals and developing better habits to achieve them
- Making the most of MC by getting more connected to other students, your professors, and departments
What don't Academic Coaches do?
Academic coaching is one of several, free academic supports available to you at MC. While your personal Academic Coach is not a counselor, academic advisor, or tutor, your personal ATPA Coach can help you make the most of those kinds of resources at MC, like tutoring through Learning Centers or academic planning with an advisor.
