Writing and Reading Center (WRC)

Weekly Individual Tutoring

Thank you for your interest in Weekly Individual Tutoring (weekly appointments) at the Writing and Reading Center.  The current waiting list for a tutor is very long, and we will not be able to assign a tutor at this time of the quarter.

You are welcome to take advantage of our drop in tutoring for help with writing and reading assignments for your classes at De Anza.

These are the WRC’s drop-in hours:

Monday through Thursday 9:30 am - 6:30 pm

Friday 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

For drop in you just come into the center and sign in at one of the computers at the entrance.  This puts your name on a “first come, first served” list. The tutors work from the list and take the next person on the list.  When your name reaches the top of the list, the next available tutor will call your name and begin your tutoring session.

Please keep in mind that Drop In Tutoring is available to all De Anza students. Weekly Individual Tutoring is only available to students enrolled in these courses:

  • EWRT 200, READ 200, or LART 200
  • EWRT 211, READ 211, or  LART 211,
  • ESL 200, ESL 234, ESL 244, ESL 252/3, ESL 262/3, or ESL 272/3/4
  • GUID 207.

*Priority for Weekly Individual is given to students enrolled in English/reading/writing classes below EWRT 1A or ESL 5 and students using EDC/DSS services. Weekly Individual Tutoring is not available for transfer-level courses (EWRT 1A, 1B, and 2, as well as ESL 5 and 6).

In January 2017, you can submit a request for weekly individual tutoring appointments here if you are enrolled in one of the courses listed above.

Please click the link to the request form and provide the information below, and we will share your contact info and class info with a tutor whose schedule works with yours.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as you wait to be assigned a tutor. Weekly Individual Tutoring provides weekly one-hour sessions with the same tutor for the entire fall, winter, or spring quarter. Weekly Individual Tutoring will begin in week 3 or 4 of the quarter. Drop In Tutoring (no appointment--first come, first served) will begin week 2. Please use Drop In Tutoring while you wait to be contacted by a Weekly Individual Tutor.
