Academic Success Coaching

The Learning Resource Center staff is committed to supporting and guiding students as they strive to reach the highest standards of academic excellence! Academic Success Coaching sessions are available to any Butler student interested in enhancing academic skills.

The first step in the Academic Success Coaching process includes the completion of an Academic Performance Self-Assessment. Students will gain insight into areas of academic strength and will identify strategies to address academic concerns. Students will work collaboratively with their Academic Success Coach to develop a plan of action to improve academic performance. Students will learn techniques to aid in approaching their coursework in an active and engaged manner. Topics frequently addressed include:

  • Transitioning to College
  • Time Management
  • Effective Reading
  • Effective Notetaking
  • Memory Enhancement
  • Academic Motivation and Goal-Setting
  • Developing a Study Plan
  • Exam Preparation
  • Developing a Study Plan for Finals
