Tutoring puts students on right track to success


Need help achieving your goals?

Delta College offers students a peer-tutoring program with a friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Walking in the Content Tutoring Center in Goleman Library a student may be greeted by Virginia Kirschenman, Instructional Support Assistant III.

“We are here to enrich and enhance their learning experience,” said Kirschenman.

Due to a recent change students are now required to go through a new sign-up process.

Any interested student must first access deltacollege.edu and click on the “Services and Support” link.

Then the student will be asked for basic information, such as name and student identification number.

Next, the student will be able to choose which courses they want to be tutored in.

Finally, once the form is completed and submitted, the student will receive an email confirming their request.

All students are eligible to get help upon their teacher’s request.

Although the sign-up process is different and slightly more lengthy this year, it’s still an easy process to start.

When asked about the efficiency of this new method, Allen Morehead Instructional Support Assistant III, said “like all new systems, you have to work out the kinks.”

Morehead said this way makes things flow smoother and since the change, the tutoring center has seen more students showing up.

There are five tutoring centers on campus: the Math and Science Learning Center, Content Tutoring Center, Reading Writing Lab, The Zone and the English as a Second Language Lab.

Tutors are available for group appointments and drop-in tutoring for those students pressed for time.

So go on and log in at deltacollege.edu and get on the right track to success.
