Which One Is Best For Me?

Academic Coaching or Tutoring?

What’s The Difference?

Everyone is familiar with tutoring; however, not everyone is familiar with academic coaching.  The difference between the two is significant.  

Tutoring, as most are aware, is when you receive individual and sometime group instruction on a specific topic such as math, science, reading, writing, etc.  This instruction can be ongoing or just one time help with a solving a specific problem. 

Academic coaching on  the other hand is different. Academic Coaching is about helping you learn the skills necessary to succeed in school, such as time management, study habits, setting goals, etc.  Academic Coaching in on the rise because high schools and colleges understand that most students struggle to balance the daily demands of life with the rigor and demands of college.  To learn how Academic Coaching can help you, click here.   To learn more about tutoring see below.
