Make an appointment


or drop-in during office hours

Study Skills Coaches meet with students either by appointment or on a drop-in basis during their office hours. Scheduled appointments will have priority. Our coaches are happy to meet with you about any aspect of study skills. If you prefer, you may choose to meet with a coach based on their area of specialization. However, this is not necessary. Any study coach will be able to help you with your study skills needs.

To book an appointment with a Personal Study Coach at the Halifax campuses:

  • Email: sfs@dal.ca or email any of the coaches at their individual email addresses found below
  • Phone: (902) 494.3077
  • Or drop by the Student Services office located in the Killam Library, Room G28
