Learning Coach

Who is a Learning Coach for?

Everyone! If you are a new student, it’s been a while since high school, you want to earn a scholarship, or last semester’s grades weren’t as high as you would like, a learning coach can help you improve your study habits and techniques. Learning Coaches are senior students who can show you how they have been successful at BU and how you can too!
