Peer Academic Coaches

Students can book a one-on-one appointment with one of our Peer Academic Coaches (PAC). PACs are upper-year students from various programs in TRSM, who are trained to assist you with:

  • improving or learning new study skills, opens in new window
  • becoming organized and better managing your time
  • navigating your academics
  • campus referrals, as you may need
  • and more!

We know that it’s very easy to start with great energy but run out of fuel as the term progresses and courses or assignments become more demanding and challenging. Meeting regularly with a PAC is a great way to stay motivated throughout the academic term.

Each appointment slot is for a 45 minutes in length. Please see "Steps to book an appointment".
