Writing, Math, and Art History Consultants
At the the Writing, Math, and Art History Center, our writing consultants help students with technical writing skills, writing cohesion, and overall quality of writing assignments, always focusing as much on the writer as much as the individual piece of writing. Our math consultants work with students to better understand their Quantitative Literacy and Business Math concepts and assignments in real time. Our Art History consultants help with understanding course content, visual literacy, and its applicability to papers, tests, and projects. All of our consultants are faculty at CCAD and professionals in their field.
The Writing, Math, and Art History Center conducts appointments remotely via Google Meet video and Google docs. Sign up for appointments here. At the time of your appointment, you will join the Google Meet via the link associated with your appointment. Please be ready to share your work and assignment prompts with the consultant via Google docs or email (you may email them to: [email protected]).
We ask that students limit appointments to 2 per week per subject (Writing/ESL; Art History; Math).
Appointments begin the second week of the semester and end on the final day of the semester in both Fall and Spring semesters.
Please email Sonya Fix, Director of LIBA if you have any questions ([email protected]cad.edu).
Disability accommodation support
The office of Disability & Access Services assists in coordinating appropriate and reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities. Disclosing a disability is voluntary, however, to be considered for reasonable accommodations for a cognitive, psychological, or physical/medical disability, current students must self-identify as having a disability and provide appropriate documentation. To initiate the process, students should contact Disability & Access Services and review the following resources for information on documentation requirements and frequently asked questions. Students registered with Disability & Access Services can also reference the Grievance Policy & Procedure regarding equal access to campus programs and services.
Requesting accommodation letters for instructors
Once registered with Disability & Access Services, students are responsible for requesting and delivering an accommodations letter to their instructors each semester. To do so, please complete the online request form below. Requests should be submitted before the start of each semester or as early as possible in the semester to ensure activation of accommodation support. Within 5 business days of receiving a request, letters are emailed to the student's CCAD student email as a PDF attachment. Students are responsible for printing and delivering letters to their instructors to have their accommodations applied. Please visit the Disability & Access Services office if you do not have access to confidential printing. We strongly encourage students to discuss their accommodations with each faculty member. Accommodation letters can be requested any time, however, accommodations cannot be applied retroactively.
Further accessibility needs
For students with disabilities in need of greater accessibility to fully participate in any campus event, program, or activity, please contact the Disability & Access Services office at [email protected]. Please notify us in advance to ensure appropriate adjustments or alterations can be made.
