Academic Coaching and Workshops

Peer Success Coaching  

Peer Success Coaching gets you to where you want to be. The coaching program connects interested students with peer coaches.  In those private, one-on-one meetings, students can reflect on their experience at UCSC, learn new study strategies, and get connected to resources and opportunities. 

Peer Coaches help students be successful by:

  • building academic skills (e.g. time management, note-taking, etc)
  • building help-seeking behaviors (e.g. navigate office hours and campus resources)
  • helping students be self-regulated learners (e.g. learn strategies to manage test anxiety and imposter syndrome)

Successful Slug Workshop Series 

The Successful Slug Workshop Series offers 45-minute workshops to all UCSC students giving them the tools to be successful at UCSC. The topics in the workshop are science-backed best practices for effective, durable learning! What you're taught at the workshops, really works! 

Workshops are led by LSS Professional Staff members who have extensive experience training undergraduate tutors.
