Section Two: Using Disability Services and Accommodations
There are numerous options to obtain tutoring support. Programs such as EOPS, Math Performance Success, OTI and others offer tutoring to their participants. Many divisions offer study groups or instructional associate help for their own course offerings. Students may meet with the instructor during office hours to clarify their understanding of course material. In addition, students sometimes find that hiring a private tutor is most useful and provides maximum flexibility. Familiarize yourself with the various options and match what works best for the class and your needs.
Two general tutorial resources utilized by DSP&S students are the instructional support in the Educational Diagnostic Center and peer tutoring through the Tutorial and Academic Skills Center.
Peer tutoring in Tutorial and Academic Skills Center
The Student Success Center located on the thrid florr of the ATC provides a variety of servics to improve academic success including trained peer tutors for free individual, group and/or drop-in tutoring for all students on campus in many academic subjects. They also offer adjunct study skills and learning strategies in small group format to students enrolled in particular sections of classes that are listed in each quarter’s schedule of classes.
The Math, Science and Technology Resource Center is located in S43. Help in writing and reading is available in the Writing and Reading Center (WRC) in ATC 309.
If you would like the Tutorial and Academic Skills Center to coordinate with DSS or EDC, indicate on the tutoring request application that you are affiliated with our programs.
See the Tutorial and Academic Skills website at http://www.deanza.edu/studentsuccess/tutorial for current information.
Instructional support in the Educational Diagnostic Center
Trained Instructional Associates provide small group tutoring or a drop-in lab for disability-related study support focusing in language, math, learning strategies, and/or organizational skills. Enroll in Guidance 218 for small group tutoring, or Guidance 219 for drop-in lab. Any student registered with DSS or EDC whose disability indicates specialized tutoring support may enroll, on the recommendation of their counselor/advisor.
