Coach Recommendation Form

Have you taught or worked with a student who is great at collaborating, problem solving, and partnering with their peers? Did you have an exceptional student who really understood the underlying principles or working of the content and its application?  Recommend them to become an academic coach!

Academic Coaches do not have to be perfect students who always succeed. Instead, we look for the following traits in our academic coaches:

  •  Good communication skills
  • Collaborative interactions with their peers, rather than dominating discussion or class activities
  • Respond to failure or struggle by seeking to grow and improve
  • Desire to learn new things and expand their knowledge, instead of focusing on only what they are good at
