Academic Coaching

Ready to Rock Academic Success Like You Never Knew You Could?


Rock AcademiaDoes College Feel Like a Foreign Country?

Matriculation, credit hours, syllabus, capstone, corequisite… wait… what the hell? Are you feeling stressed, grumpy, exhausted, or overwhelmed? Feel like you thought you were going to college and instead entered an alien land with a whole new language? Wondering if you made the right choice? College is life changing, complete with culture shock. It’s exciting and overwhelming all at the same time.

Even you graduate students who’ve mastered the secrets of the undergraduate world may now find yourselves navigating a new world of comprehensive exams, teaching requirements, research credits, theses, and dissertations. Sometimes it feels like just too much! but it doesn’t have to, you can have low-stress academic success.

There’s a Better Way to Succeed

Academic Success CoachingAre you thinking of quitting? Rethinking all your life plans? Wondering how in the world you are going to succeed? Don’t make that decision yet, because there is another way.

As a Certified Life Coach specializing in academic success who has also successfully navigated an undergraduate program, master’s degree, and Ph.D., I know what it’s like to walk through the strange, exciting, and anxiety provoking world of academia. I know what it’s like to feel overwhelmed by the demands of college. I know what it’s like being on your own for the first time, while trying to figure out who you are, and find the right major, all without wasting time (and money) floundering in the wrong program. And I know what it feels like to overcome these challenges, shake the hands of my dissertation committee, and walk away newly christened Dr. Cristie Glasheen. If you want to feel that feeling of success, whether it’s walking across the stage to receive your undergraduate degree, or being hooded for your graduate degree, let me help.

Graduate Student Success

“Cristie’s academic coaching was instrumental in helping me get over the final hurdles of finishing and defending my doctoral dissertation. Cristie is skilled at identifying and helping people like me work through the barriers, both internal and external, that might otherwise get in the way of achieving academic success. Her ability to understand and communicate others’ perspectives of a situation was invaluable to me as I prepared for my dissertation defense. I highly recommend her services to anyone who is looking for an academic coach.” -Kathy, 2015
