by | Sep 8, 2022 | D2 Center Courses, General, News, Tutoring, Updates

Fall is here! Time to kick off D2 Center tutoring and elective credits for the 2022-23 school year.

  • Tutoring from certified teachers is available in-person or via Teams/Zoom at convenient times
  • Earn up to three elective credits this year

Notify your YAN if you’re interested!

Tutoring Opportunities: Students can get help with math, Personal Finance, English, social studies, or science.

Provide your YAN with the following information—what subject/class you need tutoring for, your email address and a cell phone number. A D2 Center tutor will then contact you to sign up for a tutoring session at a time that works for you and the teacher. Students who make a weekly commitment to tutoring gain the most from the experience, but you may access tutoring on as as-needed basis if it works for you and the teacher. Most sessions run 30 minutes to an hour depending on your needs.

Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday Time: 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

Math, Personal Finance

Elective Credit Opportunities: OPS and some other school districts accept our elective credits, which are taught by Nebraska-certified teachers.

Students wanting to take an elective class should be making progress in their regular school/program class(es). To earn an elective credit, you will need to attend the first session in person at the D2 Center, participate in at least three required Zoom/Teams sessions with your teacher, and complete all assignments, tests, and activities for the course.

  • English Elective: Students focus on building reading comprehension and fluency, writing skills, and critical thinking skills. Students practice reflective writing, evaluate non-print media, and analyze and compose essays of argumentation and literary analysis.
  • Navigating Your Future: Students will develop postsecondary plans based on individual needs and preferences by engaging in goal setting for personal, social and career paths; consideration of healthy eating, sleeping, and exercise habits; and increasing knowledge in real-world financial matters such as banking and household budgeting.
  • Math Elective: Offering a review and reinforcement of the standards and skills delivered in high school math courses, students will research and develop practical applications of those skills. Each student will work at his/her own pace, and modules of study will be assigned based upon each student’s math skill level and interests. Materials and student work will be delivered electronically providing links to websites, statistical charts, and videos.
