Academic Skills Coaching

online appointment info

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 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. Drop in or schedule a one-on-one Academic Skills Coaching appointment on WC Online by clicking on the Appointment button below. If it is your first time using the site, you will need to register first.

Make an Appointment

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.

You can cancel appointments in WC Online before the appointment time. If you encounter any problem in canceling your appointment, please email the ARC at

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.

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.
