What is a coach?
A coach is an expert who observes a learner carefully, notes strengths and weaknesses, and uses their supportive and trusting relationship with the learner to offer specific guidance on improvements.
Academic Success Coaches serve exactly that purpose on our campus for our students. Academic success does not depend on talent. Rather, it is a skill that takes practice in order to perfect. We strive to help all students “go pro” as collegiate scholars!
We are well trained and educated individuals who are dedicated to assisting our students in pursuing a college degree and setting a pathway toward a successful and rewarding life beyond IU Kokomo. We support first-year students, transfer students, returning adult students and any student facing academic or personal challenges who may benefit from our services. We do this by meeting individually with students at times convenient to them; connecting students with campus resources, and teaching skills such as time management and effective study habits.
If you would like a Coach, simply contact your Academic Advisor and inform them of your interest. Our services are FREE and here for you!
