Academic Coaching Online with Shannon McNeal

Work with a professional Academic Coach to help you reach your academic goals.  Shannon is available to work with students by appointment. Academic Coaching is a one-on-one process where the student is the expert and the Academic Coach is a supportive guide, helping the student address academic concerns and identify hurdles to success. Students who work with an Academic Coach tend to stay more motivated to accomplish goals, work smarter with effective study strategies, decrease stress, and learn to work through barriers.

Schedule an Online Appointment:
Online Academic Coaching appointments are scheduled through WC Online below, which is the same schedule used by Subject Tutoring & The Writing Center.  If you have never used WC Online to schedule an appointment with Subject Tutoring or The Writing Center, then you will need to register as a new user.  Once you have created an account, you will have access to all our academic support programs (Academic Coaching, Subject Tutoring & The Writing Center). The online platform works similarly to other video chat programs, except you will return to the Academic Coach schedule at your scheduled appointment time and then click on your appointment box to launch the online appointment.
