Q. Can I get help on general study skills that help me in all my courses or in how to succeed at online learning?
Yes, FCC has set up Virtual Academic Coaching. Virtual Academic Coaching teaches students skills and strategies to help them become confident and independent learners, no matter what subject they are tackling.
If you need specific content/subject matter tutoring in MATH, BSCI, CHEM, CMIS, ECON, ACCT, or Writing help in any subject, the best place to get that is through your class's BlackBoard site through the Online Tutoring button. You can find more information here.
Virtual Academic Coaching is different because instead of working on specific content questions, coaching helps you with general skills such as test taking or online learning strategies. Spending an hour with a trained academic coach virtually can make a positive difference in your life as a student. A coach can help you understand how to approach assignments, get organized or motivated, and create a personalized plan for your success.
Virtual Academic Coaching will be available Monday through Thursday 9am to 6pm. You may sign up for 1 session per day/3 sessions per week. To obtain an Academic Coaching session:
