Village at Ithaca Achievement Coach

Become an Achievement Coach (aka. tutor) who engages students in their academic development by: encouraging them to see themselves as capable learners, assisting them with their homework, working with students to increase their understanding of key concepts in their courses, encouraging them to always give their best effort, connecting with students to build trust and comfort, helping them identify their strengths and develop strategies for using them more productively, and increasing positive peer support for academic success. Achievement Coaches work to create a safety net of awareness and communication between the student’s classroom teachers and parents or guardians, striving to ensure coordination among all of the student’s critical learning environments.
