What Coaching Entails

Learning Resources hires CCA students as academic coaches to enrich our campus learning community by helping their undergraduate and graduate peers with coursework and digital tools.

Most coaching is done by appointment only, based on your weekly availability. This is a fun, flexible job that will empower you to build your own skills, get inspired by classmates from all different majors and walks of life, and expand your artistic perspective through working alongside a diverse community of artists & thinkers.

If you have questions about coaching, email Director Brooke Hessler at
