Authentic High School-to-College Transitions with your very own private professor, Chad Day, PhD

Methodology

In all of my sessions, I use a semi-Socratic approach. (I learned years ago, as a TA during my MA and PhD programs, that preaching to/at students does not work.) With this approach, I am also in the process of diagnosing them so that I can get at the real roots of their academic struggles. Doing so, carefully and patiently, allows me to really help them remove any barriers to learning and help them build their own academic self-confidence. Over the years, I have enjoyed much more authentic student success with this kind of sensible approach than with any other fancy-named pedagogies.

Background

For the last 10 years, I have been a Professor of English and Humanities at MCC, and an award-winning faculty mentor for Phi Theta Kappa. Also, for the last 8 years, I have worked as a private academic coach, helping students of all ages with Academic Writing, Reading Strategies, Trivium, Test Prep, Research Methods, Nonlinear Processes, Executive Functions, Social Studies, Biblical Studies, et al. I am very proud that, in the last decade, I have helped 3000+ students learn how to learn on their own, and how to win the academic game.
