Academic Learning Fellows

Meet with a Learning Fellow

If you are seeking help with general time management and/study skills, the Learning Fellows will be able to get you on track. Sometimes it’s not what you study, but how you study that makes all the difference. Our Learning Fellows are Pomona students that have been successful, and are trained to help you do the same. Sign up to meet with a Learning Fellow.

What is the difference between studying and learning?  Often students come to college knowing how to study in a particular way but not capitalizing on the multiple strategies to learn, analyze content and synthesize information across courses and disciplines. Academic success encompasses a range of skills that include time management, concentration, motivation, awareness of how of how you learn, knowing when and how to ask for help, and ways to effectively organize your thinking.  Our goal is to provide comprehensive academic support programs to help students actualize your academic potential.

Learning Fellows are trained and certified through the International Mentor Certification Program. The program is based on post-secondary learning and motivation theory. The Fellows work with students to expand their critical thinking skills and utilize multiple metacognitive strategies to improve effective and efficient learning.
