We're More Than Just Tutoring
The TECHniques Center is a fee-for-service program of Student Disability Services (SDS), and the only tutoring program of its kind in Texas. The TECHniques Center provides supplemental academic support services to meet the needs and to promote the retention of undergraduate students with documented evidence of learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD or ADHD), and/or Autism Spectrum disorders. Our goal is to support students in becoming independent, self-advocates, accomplishing their educational goals, and making education accessible to those who learn differently.
Students who are interested in our program must be accepted, undergraduate Texas Tech students and:
- apply and be approved for services with SDS
- apply and be approved for services with the TECHniques Center
- complete the required SDS intake.
Why Should You Consider Our Program?
Our students are consistently successful. We are proud to share that students who successfully complete the semester with us have an average 97-99% retention rate to the university. In addition, the TECHniques Center offers consistent, one-on-one tutoring throughout the week with assigned tutors and weekly sessions with an academic counselor. Our program is certified through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), and each semester tutors earn a tutor certification level in order to best assist our students.
