Academic Coaching Services

Academic coaching is similar to tutoring and covers subject content. In addition, coaches will introduce and incorporate study strategies, academic skills, and technology use. Coaching is available in various subjects and all coaches have been referred by faculty and/or hold a Bachelor’s degree or higher in their field. Coaches work with students to help them better understand the course material by using various learning methods. Coaching is available to all students not just students who are doing poorly. Coaching primarily takes place on the Sidney Campus or Greenville Campus unless special arrangements have been approved to meet elsewhere. Students are allowed one hour per week (per class) of one-on-one coaching. Coaches, specifically in math, are available in a drop-in format. Students may use the drop-in times as much as they’d like and still receive the one hour of one-on-one coaching in addition to the drop-in times. Coaching is a FREE service to students. One-on-one tutoring is available for a variety of subjects, including: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Nursing. Drop-in coaching doesn't count against your one free hour of coaching per week, per course, so be sure to take advantage of this extra time.

Doser Building on the college’s Sidney campus, call (989) 328-1264, or email studentsuccess@montcalm.edu to receive coach contact information for specific subjects and schedule tutoring sessions. Coaching is not available when campus is closed for any reason, including holidays, inclement weather, power outages, etc.
