The Kelley Academic Peer Coaching Program provides free, high-quality, and easily accessible academic coaching. The program consists of more than 80 peer coaches who have been vetted and trained by Kelley faculty and staff. Peer coaches are available for the following courses:

  • BUS-A100
  • BUS-A201 (except Prof. Glass’s online sections)
  • BUS-A202 (except Prof. Glass’s online sections)
  • BUS-C104/BUS-C106

Accounting coaches offer support for students enrolled in sections of BUS-A 201 taught by Prof. Julie Head and sections of BUS-A 202 taught by Prof. Diane Biagioni. They are not able to assist students enrolled in the following courses:

  • BUS-A 205 Honors Financial Accounting
  • BUS-A 207 Honors Managerial Accounting
  • Sections of BUS-A 201 or BUS-A 202 taught by Prof. Glass

Consult your instructor for appropriate help resources for these courses.

Schedule a Coaching Appointment

After you enroll in business courses, read the bios of the coaches assigned to your class and set up an appointment to meet.

Appointment requests must be submitted at least 48 hours in advance. You can expect a response from the coach within 36 hours. Scheduling at least 5 days in advance is encouraged.

Only request a coach for a class in which you’re currently enrolled. For example, only students enrolled in BUS-A 201 should request an appointment with a BUS-A 201 coach. Appointments focus on course-specific content, and each peer coach only provides assistance for a single course.

Only request one peer coach per course at a time. If one peer coach responds indicating they are unable to meet with you, you may then submit a new appointment request to another coach.

MATH-M 118 appointments are available only to admitted Kelley students and pre-Kelley University Division students. Other students are encouraged to utilize the free MATH-M 118 support resources offered by the Mathematics Department and the IU Student Academic Center.

Special note about peer tutors for BUS-K201/BUS-K204 and BUS-K303/BUS-K304: Ask your professor, or a current peer tutor in your class, for information on how to use their services.
