Academic Coaching Center

UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus, masks are required for on-campus appointments.

The Academic Coaching Center is committed to empowering Concordia University Irvine students as life-long learners by providing support services that will equip them with tools to achieve their academic goals. Our peer-directed academic coaching is offered free of charge.

Tutoring Services

Tutors (also referred to as Academic Coaches) provide the support needed to understand and explore course concepts and assignments in small group and one-on-one sessions. Schedule a tutoring session.

The Writing Studio

Writing Consultants support students in their development as writers and critical thinkers. In one-on-one sessions, they provide feedback on papers for things like the strength of claims, quality of research and evidence integration, organization and structure, formatting, adherence to assignment, and genre conventions. Schedule a Writing Studio session.

In addition, we partner with faculty and staff in offices such as Academic Advising, First-Year Experience, and the Disability and Learning Resource Center to encourage, inspire, motivate, and support the academic success of each student.

If interested in becoming an academic coach or writing consultant, visit the Tutoring Services or Writing Studio application pages.
