What is a Learning Specialist?

A learning specialist is a coach for learning. We support and counsel students in ways that allow them to become better studiers and time managers.

What we do

Each of us has room to improve. We are here to support and counsel students of KU Medical Center in ways that allow them to become better learners, studiers, time managers and more. Just as people will soon be seeking you out for medical help, we are here to provide educational help. Some of the many services we provide include:

  • Test taking strategies
  • Time management assistance
  • Board/Licensing Exam planning
  • Study groups
  • Learning styles counseling
  • Active learning strategies
  • Note taking/efficiency
  • Test anxiety

Just as best athletes, musicians, artists and writers seek out professionals to help them perform at their greatest potential, we are here to help you find, refine or gain skills to increase your academic success.
