Tutoring and Other Tutorial Services
Our primary service is tutoring, in many subject areas and in study and learning skills. T/LC services are provided free of charge to students currently enrolled in academic classes at Delta. You must have a Delta student ID or other picture ID to obtain walk-in tutoring.
Most tutoring is on a walk-in basis. Professional staff may occasionally make appointments to see students. Most general education courses, including math, biology, chemistry, CST, social sciences such as psychology or political science, humanities such as history, and English, are covered in staff hours and student tutor walk-in hours. Some courses may have Study Groups; Structured Learning Assistance is provided for WRT090, MTH092, and paired sections of MTH092/096.
Walk-in hours can be very busy, especially from about 10 am to 3 or 4 pm. You may get the help you need in just a few minutes. But if you have several questions or lots of work to do, you should plan on at least an hour. A walk-in tutor will probably work with you part of that time, and check with you periodically.
- The T/LC cannot guarantee that tutoring can be provided for every Delta course, or that every subject will be covered at all times. If you are hoping to work with a particular tutor, phone the T/LC at 686-9314 to make sure that person is in before you make a special trip to campus!
- T/LC tutors will not assist students with any take-home tests or quizzes. A test is the students' chance to demonstrate that they know, understand, and can apply the course concepts on their own.
- The Tutoring Schedule (DOC) is available; check for updates! If you want to see a particular tutor, call 686-9314 before coming to campus.
- See LLIC hours for the T/LC hours.
- The T/LC’s tutoring program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association's International Tutor Certification Program.

Other Tutorial Services
Structured Learning Assistance (SLA) is a program of mandatory directed study and practice workshops currently attached to all sections of WRT 090 Introduction to Academic Writing, to all sections of MTH092 Basic Math, and to paired sections of MTH092 and MTH096 Prealgebra. A Structured Learning Assistance Facilitator is present in the class and conducts out-of-class workshops. All students in SLA classes must attend study sessions. Some instructors may have different grade requirements for mandatory attendance.
Workshops are scheduled immediately before or after class. The times are listed in the Section Information when you search for classes online in MyDelta and will appear on your schedule.
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. Groups may be unfacilitated or an instructor may recommend a student facilitator to the Tutoring Coordinator.
