Tutoring for DRC Students

If you have discussed and have tutoring services put in place by your DRC service coordinator, follow these steps. Don't hesitate to contact your DRC service coordinator if you have any questions.

Step 1: Register for Tutoring with LSS 

Register via the Online Tutor Sign-up System (OTSS). Register for tutoring with LSS before the start of each quarter, if possible. Sign up for tutoring timeslots on the OTSS start day in the third week of the quarter. If you need to start tutoring earlier than the third week of classes, please contact the DRC to inquire about priority status. Tutors are provided on a first come, first served basis, so sign up at your earliest opportunity. Timeslots fill quickly. 

Step 2: Identify Yourself

When requesting special tutoring services, tell the LSS staff that you are a DRC client.

If your DRC coordinator asks LSS to consider you for individual tutoring, you must contact the LSS Tutor Coordinator, 831-459-3462, or another LSS staff member, 831-459-4333, to facilitate your two-step sign up process. Individual tutoring is a consideration and cannot be guaranteed.

Step 3: Prepare for your Tutoring Sessions

Do the reading and the homework as best you can beforehand.

Step 4: Attend your Weekly Sessions

You may be dropped from tutoring for excessive absences.
