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 support resources utilized by DSPS students are:
Peer and small-group tutoring through campus Tutorial Services
The Student Success Center located on the third floor of the ATC provides a variety of services to improve academic success including:
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 and Learning Disabilities Support, indicate on the tutoring request application that you are affiliated with our programs.
