Peer Academic Coaching option

As we begin this semester, the Sanger Learning Center would appreciate your assistance in publicizing to students that the Peer Academic Coaching program is open at to any undergraduate student interested in receiving coaching from a trained UT student on how to prepare effectively for UT classes. It’s a great opportunity for proactive students new to campus adjusting to new academic demands as well as for any student not yet fully satisfied with results in their UT courses.

We have a number of spots available immediately. Participants will learn how to match the ways in which they study to the unique demands of each course. Common topics include note-taking and reading techniques, time management and concentration, and test-taking and test preparation. Potential participants should be open to trying new study techniques and be willing to meet privately once a week for an hour with a peer coach.

Peer coaches are carefully vetted and receive pre-service and ongoing weekly training from SLC learning specialists. Participants are admitted to the program on a rolling basis, subject to coach availability. The cost of coaching sessions is covered by the Sanger Learning Center.

Students interested in working with a coach should complete an application at https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/ugs/my/pac/interest-form/.
