Tutoring Opportunities

  • Certified teachers are available on Monday and Wednesday afternoons between 2 and 5:30 p.m. for help with math, English, and many other subject areas.

Math or English Elective Credit Opportunities

  • Math Elective: Students master the fundamentals and beyond by using Khan Academy (online) in a math computer lab setting; a diagnostic test at the beginning of the course allows teachers to differentiate instruction, build on individual math skills, and provide 1:1 assistance.
  • English Elective: Students focus on building reading comprehension and fluency, writing skills, and critical thinking skills; a diagnostic test at the beginning of the course allows teachers to differentiate instruction, build individual reading and writing skills, and provide 1:1 assistance.
  • Students need to call D2 Center Director Greg Emmel (402-502-8534) to enroll in either course. Teachers are available on Mondays and Wednesdays from 2 to 5:30 p.m.

Careers and Community Engagement (C & CE) opportunities

  • Elective credit or other career assistance is available on an “as needed” basis.
  • Contact your YAN (cell phone) or Career Navigator Jerrie Glassman (402-917-0077).
  • Students utilize a variety of resources to explore and select career options, identify educational and training pathways, create a resume, and develop soft skills needed to be successful in a career. Students also explore career experiences in the community.
  • The Career Navigator is available to assist any D2 Center student or graduate with career exploration, postsecondary planning and engagement, resume writing, job searches and applications, mock interviews, and other job or career-related skills and strategies.
