Academic Coaching

We offer Academic Coaching for both undergraduate and graduate students. Academic Coaching provides you with a "personal trainer” who can observe your strategies and techniques, suggest changes to your approach, and provide encouragement as you implement new ways of learning. Our professional Academic Coaches hold advanced degrees and bring a diversity of academic, professional, and personal experience to their roles. Our peer Academic Coaches are mid-to-late stage graduate or professional students who are familiar with the academic challenges at Stanford. Meet our Academic Coaches.

Academic Coaches meet with both undergraduate and graduate students and help you tackle common challenges like:

  • Procrastination
  • Test preparation & anxiety
  • Thesis & dissertation writing
  • Time management
  • Reading & note-taking
