The Teaching/Learning Center provides services to students both inside and outside the classroom. Our services are free for all Delta students who are currently enrolled in academic classes; more than 3000 of them use T/LC services each semester! Whether it's developing learning strategies, mastering new material, refreshing skills, or providing a support network, our professional and student staff want to work with you to support your success! See below for brief descriptions of some of our many services, and follow the links to more in-depth information.
Our primary service is tutoring, in content areas and in study skills. T/LC services are provided free of charge to students currently enrolled in academic classes at Delta. The T/LC cannot guarantee that tutoring can be provided for every Delta course, or that every subject will be covered at all times.
- You must present a Delta student ID (preferred) or other picture ID to obtain walk-in tutoring.
- Most general education courses are covered in staff hours and student tutor walk-in hours.
- Walk-in hours can be very busy, especially from about 10 am to 3 or 4 pm. We want to make sure you have the help you need, but you may have to wait a few minutes for a tutor to get to you.
- If you have several questions or lots of work to do, you should plan on at least an hour's visit. A walk-in tutor will probably work with you part of that time, and check with you periodically.
- In our Computer Lab (A-120), your can find help with your CST courses and other computer-based assignments or type your papers and find help on formatting.
- Spring (May 12-June 30) Tutoring Schedule is here; please check regularly for updates.
Students have many ways to get help on-line with classes, coursework, study skills, and T/LC services.

Structured Learning Assistance
Structured Learning Assistance (SLA) is an instructional academic support model for developmental courses. The SLA program currently covers ENG090, MTH092, and sections of MTH096 taught in conjunction with MTH092. A Structured Learning Assistance Facilitator is present in the class and conducts out-of-class workshops. Time for the workshops is listed along with class meeting times in the schedule.
If you are enrolled in any of these classes, you will be required to attend the first few study sessions. Study sessions are always open to all students, but after the first sessions might be required for students who are below a C+ average in the class. Some instructors require attendance for students below a B -, or before tests.
The T/LC's Study Groups provide a forum for students in a class to work together for studying and learning. A major goal of study groups is to empower students and help them be responsible for their own learning. Working together makes learning challenging, meaningful and enjoyable.
Why work with a Study Group? You can learn study habits, skills, and attitudes that translate to other classes, improving overall academic performance. Students who participate in Study Group sessions and activities consistently receive test scores and final grades about one half a grade higher than those who don't. Sessions provide opportunities for collaboration and extend learning beyond the classroom.
