In advanced academic environments, high quality written work is often paramount to student success. Writing coaching goes beyond editing papers. A writing coach can work with the student at any time during the writing process, depending on what the student needs most. This could mean working together from start (reviewing the assignment details) to finish (final revisions) or concentrating on specific parts of the writing process. The student and coach will develop a timeline with deliverables to ensure the thoughtful and deliberate construction of high quality, academically mature papers.
Because each student comes with their own set of learning needs, Faust Academics tailors coaching for each specific student. We are innovative in our approach and are interested in developing coaching experiences that are as unique as our students. If you don't see what you need, please contact us and let's talk about how you think coaching may work for you.
note-taking from lectures
Many students enter academic environments without having learned how to study. Study skills coaching has the dual benefit of helping the student develop effective and efficient study processes and providing study sessions as needed. Preparing for exams becomes a course-long process so that the student develops note-taking, organization, and review skills designed to eliminate cramming and promote retention of course material.

Study Skills Coaching
Through content coaching, students will learn strategies for managing the complexities, volume, pace and rigor of knowledge acquisition in advanced learning environments. Reading and note-taking strategies specific to the content and class requirements will be developed. Content coaching differs from content tutoring in that coaching does not review or reteach content, but instead provides the student with strategies to open the opportunity for independent learning.
Current research shows that students with learning disabilities or ADHD (including executive function difficulties) constitute well over half the population of college students with specific learning needs. There are 8 executive functions, all of which, when not functioning to their potential, can impede student success. ADHD often manifests through its impact on executive functions, but these can be impacted for people without ADHD as well. Executive function / ADHD coaching provides a tailored experience based on individual student need. Student and coach will together determine a plan of action and the coach will provide any necessary support tools. The frequent interaction between the student and the coach makes this type of coaching unique and impactful.
