Port Tutoring is now offering “Academic Coaching.” This is a new form of tutoring that assists students with the overall learning approach as opposed to re – teaching. Traditional tutoring focuses on content mastery in a specific area of study, while academic coaching creates an infrastructure for learning. Through weekly one on one support our coaches will help students acquire the skills necessary for success in the classroom and beyond. The Academic Coach will focus on the following skills:
- Study skills
- Note taking
- Writing school papers
- Test taking techniques
- Time management and organizational skills
- Identification of individual learning style
- Eliminate procrastination
- Creating a study space
