Academic Coaching

During your studies there are times when not everything runs as smoothly as planned. Sometimes you do not pass an exam, other times the sheer amount of learning material seems unmanageable, or time is running out. We support you in all situations where you are not making the progress in your studies that you would like. Our team advises you in challenging times - so that you can successfully get through your semester and your studies.

Talk to us!

We are here to support you during  these challenging times. Therefore, please contact use as usual by Email for any issues you might want to discuss: lerncoaching.ssz@tum.de

We are happy to arrange a coaching session by phone or videochat

Reasons for an academic coaching can be

  • General learning difficulties
  • Language and cultural hurdles
  • Feelings of self-doubt and of being overwhelmed by the workload
  • Stress and anxiety in exam situations
  • Lack of motivation and willpower
  • Procrastination issues
  • Feelings of being on your own

All topics that you discuss with us will of course be treated confidentially. We are subject to professional secrecy.
