Exceed Your Own Expectations.

Victoria College Total Learning Center offer academic coaches to assist students with learning strategies. To do this, coaches provide students with questions, observations, feedback, encouragement, support, and accountability. Unlike a therapist’s exploration of origins of emotional or psychological trauma that can be long-term and intensive, a coach explores behaviors, values, motivators, and some emotions. Coaching is primarily focused on the present and future, with a concentration on time-limited, action-oriented results.

Academic Coaching is available to all Victoria College students. Request a coach by using our online request form.
