Academic Skills Coaching

Academic Coaching

Individual Tutoring

In addition to Writing & Speaking Consultations, ARC’s Writing and Speaking Fellows can help you sharpen your academic skills in reading, note-taking, time management, goal setting and decision making, test preparation, and more.

Where to find us:
All Academic Skills Coaching Appointments take place in the ARC, 5th floor, Academic Building. You may ask the Information Assistant (IA) at the front desk outside of the ARC for assistance if you can’t find your appointed Writing & Speaking Fellow.

Academic Skills Coaching Policies:

Appointment expectations
Appointments are booked for 1 hour, but typically last around 45 minutes so that there is time to complete a client report that summarizes your progress and is shared with relevant faculty, unless you request otherwise.

Cancellation
You can cancel appointments in WC Online up to four hours before the appointment; after that point, you need to request a cancellation by emailing the ARC at shanghai.arc@nyu.edu.

Walk-ins
You may walk into the ARC anytime if there is an appointment slot, unbooked, and it is no more than 15 minutes passed that appointment hour.

Late and missed appointment
If you are more than 10 minutes late for your appointment, it may be canceled. If you miss or late to more than two appointments or cancel at the last minute more than twice, your WC Online account will be disabled. You must email the ARC for assistance.

Waitlist
If no appointment slot is available for you at the time of booking, you may join the waiting list for that particular day by clicking the “waiting list” on the lower right corner of the schedule. You will receive a notification once an appointment slot become available. However, you will need to log back into WCOnline in order to secure the appointment.
