I could not find anything online. I tried \~\textipa{@} but that produced only a tilde before a schwa. Any help on resolving this probably simple issue would be appreciated!

    Did you try \~\tipaschwa or \textipa{\~@}? Jul 14, 2015 at 16:14

Just put the \~ inside the scope of the \textipa command:

You should use \~ within \textipa{} thus: \textipa{\~{@}}

You should use the diacritic commands within "the IPA environment" (which is the generic term for the IPA groups and environment in the TIPA manual). All of your IPA stuff really belongs in the IPA environment. This will allow consistency of font and encoding, but it's also the only way a command like this can work.
