They also oversee the interventions at the Tier 1 level. They work directly with instructors to provide interventions at the Tier 1 and Tier 2 level. These experts also help make informed decisions on whether students move up and down the pendulum of the three tier process. Student Success Coach Provides exceptional customer service to currently enrolled students by executing all elements of proactive student progress monitoring sheets and goals including face to face meetings and presentations, phone conversations and emails.
