Coaching Policies

Our coaches work to:

  • Listen carefully to the student’s explanation of the assignment and help the student deepen his or her sense of understanding.
  • Help the student carefully plan the most effective strategies for achieving his or her purpose and improving his or her skills.
  • Take instructor's comments and evaluations seriously, as part of the learning process within which the student must operate.
  • Provide a non-threatening environment and a safe place for students to talk about their work.

Our ultimate aim is to develop better writers, readers, and presenters!

Our coaches will NOT:

  • Provide proofreading or editing services.
  • Write papers for students.
  • "Correct" papers.
  • Ignore problems in grammar, spelling, and usage.
  • Criticize or otherwise undermine faculty members.
  • Question a professor's methods or goals for instruction.
