Learning Center

Welcome

Welcome to the Diné College Learning Center, where we provide free academic tutoring and a variety of learning support services to current Diné College students during the spring, summer, and fall semesters. Peer and professional tutors at the Diné College Learning Center help students develop positive academic independence and serve as an academic support system for students who are facing academic challenges.

The Diné College Learning Center is dedicated to assisting students in achieving their academic objectives. We are committed to providing a success-oriented learning environment that focuses on the essentials of college success. Our student support programs are designed to help students reach their full academic potential.

In addition, we provide collaborative student learning processes that are designed to actively engage the learner. Finally, we offer online study strategies and tips to students through a series of workshops to help improve study skills and learning strategies.

Mission Statement
To ensure support services to enhance student learning.

What is the Learning Center?
The Diné College Learning Center, better known on campus as the LC, is a multi-faceted academic support program for all Diné College students. We provide tutoring services (individual, group, and online) study skills workshops, and learning specialists free of charge to all Diné College students.

Our website contributes information to help you succeed in college, whether you are a first-semester student seeking help in mathematics, a continuing student looking for tips to improve your writing, or an undergraduate senior preparing for graduate school. We also post the schedules of our other resources such as upcoming workshops, webinars and events so you will know when and where to find us throughout the week.

While I hope that you will explore our web site and learn more about our services, we also encourage you to come see the LC the next time you are on campus. We’re easy to find on the campus, so feel free to stop by and speak with our friendly staff, pick up a few helpful handouts, and see why Diné College Learning Center students visit us over 500 times each semester.

Requesting for Tutoring Services
The Diné College Learning Center provides students with easy access to qualified tutors in as many academic areas as possible. Students in need of tutoring must submit a request online that details their name, student ID #, and course number in which they need tutoring. After submitting an online request, a student will receive a confirmation email immediately. A tutor will then contact the student to gather more materials to prepare for the session at the requested date and time.

**During this time, all tutoring appointments will be conducted virtually utilizing Zoom, ConexEdu or other video-conferencing platforms.**
