Academic Coaching and Consultations on Strategic Learning and Studying Practices

Are you feeling excited about the possibility of reaching for your academic potential at Cal?  Or perhaps overwhelmed by the academic demands and wanting some support? In 1-1 coaching sessions, a Strategic Learning Coach will help you not only survive, but thrive academically. The coach will partner with you to enable you to become more aware of your learning strategies, practices, challenges and beliefs. With an understanding of your challenges, he/she will offer you effective strategies to maximize your learning. Through the process of setting goals and following through on your action plans to achieve those goals, you become empowered to own your learning process and actualize your academic potential.

Seminars offered by the Strategic Learning Program are intended to help students learn about the process of learning and understand how they learn best, given their own unique approach to learning. Although the specific focus may vary, seminars generally focus on study strategies, skills and practices, campus resources, and non-cognitive aspects of learning, such as the role of emotions, and how to cultivate resilience and a growth mindset. Students in seminars are also encouraged to sign up for sessions with a Strategic Learning Coach to receive guidance in putting into practice what they are learning in the seminar. Please check back here regularly for updates on current offerings.


Through Strategic Learning Program workshops, students learn specific study strategies and practices they can implement to help them achieve academic success at Cal. Workshop topics include, but are not limited to: time-management, effective reading and note-taking strategies, blue-printing and exam preparation.
