Find a Learning Coach

To receive Southern State's coaching services, you must complete the Learning Services Registration

You can submit the learning services registration application electronically or submit a printed copy to any faculty secretary or to Learning Services. Once the form is completed, you are eligible to utilize the coaching resources which include drop-in labs, one-on-one sessions and online coaching through Canvas.

Everyone learns and processes information differently. Some students like to see how a problem may be resolved while other students may prefer to be hands on when introduced to a subject. Ever wonder what your Learning Style is? Take this brief online Learning Style Questionnaire and you will discover which style works for you. Connect with a Learning Coach to learn more about your results and how to best utilize your learning styles and strengths.

Learning Services Staff

Our mission is to develop independent, responsible, lifelong-learners by promoting active learning, increasing student motivation and instilling confidence. The center strives to create an open, inviting atmosphere conducive to learning. Coaches will seek to identify learning styles and assist the student in developing sets of learning strategies which address their needs.
