Everyone can use an academic 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 academic coaching work includes:
- test-preparation techniques
- test-taking skills
- study guide development
- key concept identification
- 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 course load.
Other students may choose to work on a particular concept or skillset. These meetings are more sporadic and limited in nature.
