Welcome to Academic Coaching!

Learning Commons Academic Coaches work 1:1 with students to find strategies that lead to academic success. These can include time management skills, how to avoid procrastination, test-taking strategies, reading tips, note-taking strategies, motivation, and mindset. At the very core of our coaching program is our firm belief that every student at CWU has the ability to learn and improve. Our focus is to help you discover how to "train your brain" to get the results YOU want.

The Learning Commons is offering Academic Coaching in person appointments for Spring 2022. We have extended afternoon hours and enhanced services to help you!

Please schedule with us by emailing or calling 509-963-1270.

Requirements for Academic Coaching

The only thing you need to participate in coaching is a desire to improve. You can meet with us once and see if it's a good fit for you. We encourage you to sign up more than once--students who visit at least six times start to see incredible improvement in GPA, up to a full GPA point higher! Coaching sessions are highly individualized, and your coach will be able to help you with many strategies for improvement. You will be in the driver's seat making the decisions on what to focus on. All appointments are based on a first-come, first-serve basis.
