Conquer the semester

Academic Coaching


Lee de Picciotto

“Most students have never been taught how to study and the strategies they devise on their own don’t work.”
– Valerie Strauss, education writer


My name is Lee and I’m an academic coach. I work with students who want to equip themselves with a powerful set of tools and build great habits to succeed in their academic lives and beyond.

School can be a struggle

Let’s take a close look at your classes and how things are going so far. If you’re between semesters, go back in time for a moment and remember your last semester!

  • How are your grades so far?
  • How are your stress levels?
  • Are you able to sit down and get schoolwork and studying done when you need to?
  • How do you prepare for a test? Do you have PROOF that you know the necessary info before the test begins?
  • How do you stay organized with all of your school materials and online portals?
  • How do you stay on top of due dates, test dates, after-school commitments, and more?
  • Do you have a solid gameplan for the next test? How about a gameplan for the whole semester?
  • Do you have any habits or routines that are getting in the way of your success?

Let's talk about your goals

And how we can reach them.
Let’s try out new tools and see which are a great fit.
Let’s work on habits, consistently.

Let’s start developing a mastery in skill sets which can empower you take the next steps forward:

  • Effective Note taking
  • Organization
  • Time management
  • Exam preparation & strategic studying
  • Keeping procrastination at bay
  • Staying focused & avoiding distractions
  • Effective communication with teachers, support staff, and so on
  • And more
