Academic Success Coaches

Meet the Academic Success Coaches

Andrea Leibowitz

I have a B.A. in Psychology and graduated from law school with a J.D. I have worked as a lawyer and a legal writing instructor. My hobbies include spending time with family and friends, travel and cooking. As a success coach, my specialties include helping students with time management, organization and study skills.  I also help students balance test preparation for graduate school admission exams (LSAT, MCAT, GRE, etc.) with their current studies.  I look forward to working with you and helping you succeed!

Hello! My name is Sarah Williams. I am a first year student in NSU’s Masters of Occupational Therapy Program. I have a B.S in Psychology and minor in biology from Florida State University. I am very excited to be joining the Tutoring and Testing Center as a new academic coach. I have ample experience in leadership, the medical field, the arts and fitness. As a coach, I specialize in finding what motivates a student to persevere, managing/finding balance between school, life, and extracurriculars, compartmentalization of your roles, and health profession curriculum, entrance, and application help. I look forward to working with you!
