Become a Spring 2021 Peer Academic Coach!

Academic coaches provide tutoring and mentoring to fellow Honors students in a variety of subject-specific courses. Students in the course are responsible for hosting weekly coaching sessions (2 hours per week) and should be prepared to help students in their given subjects by reviewing the course material, preparing additional study materials, and serving as a mentor for Honors students attending sessions.

The deadline to apply is Friday, November 13!
