How do I maintain focus while learning online?
How come I can’t remember anything from the lecture I just attended 10 minutes ago?
I have 8 chapters to read this weekend for 3 different classes, where do I even start?
How do people use their lecture notes to study for an exam? Am I doing it right?

Meet the Team
SPAC coaches are Science students like you! Meet the team.
The Science Peer Academic Coaches will continue to offer coaching services virtually for the 2021/2022 academic year. A coach will be happy to chat with you via Zoom to create a study plan, discuss time management strategies, and more. Science Peer Academic Coaches will help you complete an Action Plan to outline the immediate steps you should take to achieve your academic goals. Throughout this process, coaches will familiarize you with various campus resources that you can access to support your academic success.
Starting September 20, drop-ins for virtual coaching will be open:
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday (2 PM - 6 PM)
