Section Two: Using Disability Services and Accommodations
There are numerous options for obtaining tutoring support at De Anza. 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 often 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.
Peer tutoring in Tutorial and Academic Skills Center
The Tutorial and Academic Skills Center provides 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.
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 118 (1 unit) for small group tutoring, or Guidance 119 (1/2 unit) 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.
