ASC Coaching Circles

The ASC Coaching Circles are a series of ongoing workshops in small groups, addressing study skills that are beneficial to all students and support student achievement such as, time management, note-taking, effective study techniques, exam preparation, etc.

These workshops will be facilitated by our professional staff on a weekly basis throughout the whole term. They will be informal circles of about 10 students, in order to stimulate participation in a semi-personalized and friendly setting.

 Below is the Programming for the Winter '18 term:

Note: Each topic will run for two weeks, to give students the chance to participate in case they had missed their first chance to join.
