As we begin this semester, the Sanger Learning Center would appreciate your assistance in reminding students that the Peer Academic Coaching program is open to any student interested in receiving coaching from a trained UT student on how to prepare effectively for UT classes. Peer coaches are carefully vetted, and receive pre-service and ongoing weekly training from SLC learning specialists. We have a number of spots available immediately, and would love to help your students.
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.
The cost is covered by the Sanger Learning Center. Participants are admitted to the program on a rolling basis, subject to coach availability.
Students interested in working with a coach should complete an application at https://utdirect.utexas.edu/apps/ugs/my/pac/interest-form/. They also may, of course, contact me by email for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
