Academic Coaching

Everyone can use a coach

Many students lack the fundamental skills necessary to succeed at college. More often than not, this is at no fault of the student. Secondary education varies dramatically in the preparation provided to students. Accordingly, many students arrive at Mines needing some additional assistance. To some degree, nearly all students at Mines need to work and reevaluate their academic skills.

Working with Our Office

The CASA staff work to individually support students by addressing their individual need(s). Often this coaching work includes:

  • test-preparation techniques
  • test-taking skills
  • study guide development
  • key concept identification
  • test-anxiety
  • memorization techniques
  • note-taking rules
  • and much more

Many students work with the coordinators throughout the academic semester/year. In this capacity, the staff work to hold students accountable to their courseload.

Other students may choose to work on a particular concept or skillset. These meetings are more sporadic and limited in nature.

Is Coaching Right For You?

Our staff is more than happy to meet with anyone. The first meeting with is an initial intake. At that time, we identify issues or concerns and mutually agree upon a forward direction.
