Spring 2020 Online ARC Appointments

ARC will be offering distance support for students who are enrolled in NYU Shanghai courses through online sessions until the campus reopens, at which point the ARC will also offer in-person appointments as usual. If you are taking classes at another campus/site, you are also encouraged to take advantage of academic support resources available at those locations. You can log on to WCOnline to book an appointment with a Global Writing & Speaking Fellow or a Learning Assistant. See here for more information.

Individual and Group Tutoring

Who we are:
ARC Learning Assistants (LA) are NYU Shanghai student tutors who provide course-specific academic support to NYU Shanghai students in and out of the classroom. LAs work closely with faculty and ARC staff to support student success and promote independent and active learning. LAs provide Individual and small-group tutoring in over 30 STEM, Business, Economics, IMA/IMB, and Chinese Language courses.

Where to find us:

  • Most course tutoring sessions take place in the ARC, 5th floor, Academic Building. Location for larger-group study sessions will be announced before the individual sessions.
  • IMA tutoring sessions take place in the IMA Lab (Room 826).
  • Chinese tutoring sessions take place in the Chinese Clinic (Room 965).

You may ask the Information Assistant (IA) at the front desk outside of the ARC for assistance if you can’t find your appointed Learning Assistant.
