Supporting Students through Academic Coaching
Hi! My name is Penny Hinke. As the AccessSTEM academic coach, I help college students develop strategies that enable them to achieve their academic goals and succeed at college. Since every student is different, coaching sessions are tailored to each student’s needs and challenges. Many students benefit from working on study skills such as time management, organization, academic writing, exam preparation, and stress management. I also work with students on building confidence, motivation and self-advocacy. Typically, sessions are about an hour and occur weekly during the academic year. To find out more or to schedule an appointment, contact me at hinkep@uw.edu, 206-543-9150. I’d love to hear from you!

$100 for REFERRING A FRIEND: AccessSTEM is currently offering $100 for UW students that successfully recruit someone into the program. On the application, have them write your name in the blank “Where did you hear about AccessSTEM?"
