Academic Coaching Services in Portland

Our Approach to Academic Coaching

We know that academic challenges are not always tied to a subject or level. In fact, struggling to take good notes, do homework, or study for a quiz are challenges that arise in almost every subject.

Sometimes, the main difficulty is with juggling a full course load with staying organized and on top of things. This is where academic coaching comes in.

The goal of academic coaching is to address these challenges head on, improving academic performance across the board.

How Emergent Education’s Academic Coaching
Program Can Help Students Reach Full Potential

On the surface, our tutors help students with quiz & test preparation as well as assignment completion for whatever class a student is struggling in.

Go a level deeper and you’ll find that our tutors emphasize foundational academic skills such as:

  • Executive functions
  • Reading comprehension,
  • Written & verbal communication,
  • Critical thinking;
  • And more 

With academic coaching, our students leave better equipped to meet the academic challenges that they encounter at every level and in any subject.

FAQs About Our Academic Coaching Services

Tutoring often is tailored to a specific subject. For example, a student might come to us for Geometry tutoring. The focus during that program is helping the student improve in Geometry.

Academic coaching is not typically associated with a subject. Instead, academic coaching addresses challenges with academic skills like note taking, test preparation, executive functioning, and more. 

During an academic coaching session, you will get to know your tutor and they will get to know you, asking questions to help figure out:

  • Where you’re at
  • Where you would like to be; and
  • How to get you there.

From there, we’ll design a plan to build your academic skills that involves setting goals and expectations for each session.

What to Expect

First, we talk about where you are, where you want to be, and what it will take to get there. Together, we’ll design a plan for your learning, setting goals and timeline targets. At each meeting, we will begin by evaluating your understanding, reviewing goals and making adjustments as needed. Then we work on what you have prepared for our session, usually the most challenging problems or assignments that you could not complete alone.

One-on-One VS. Small Group?

Traditional one-on-one tutoring allows for the most individualized support. Small group tutoring balances that support with more peer-to-peer engagement. Students can teach each other a lot about a subject when given the space and tools to do so. Reach out today to learn more.
