Get tutored at the Douglas College Learning Centre

Need a bit of help developing your skills in reading, writing, math, basic computer use, as well as study strategies? Good news: the Learning Centre is open for the Winter Semester and will get you up to speed.

*This term, Peer Technical Assistants will be available if you  need help while using the Learning Centre and Library computer stations in New Westminster. The Peer Technical Assistants can help you with computing questions, including using Blackboard and formatting Excel and Word documents.

Weekly, ongoing tutoring
If you want  ongoing help with skill development, sign up to work with a peer-tutor for 50-minute, weekly appointments. Tutors will help you develop study skills, mastery of course content and writing skills. Spots fill up quickly, so sign up now! Tutoring Request Forms are available on the Learning Centre website.

Drop-in tutoring
The Learning Centre at both campuses has designated drop-in times,  posted on the website. Sign up for these 25-minute sessions up to one week in advance by coming to the Learning Centre during open hours.

Online tutoring
Available beginning yesterday, online tutoring is to help you with your writing skills. Send in questions and drafts, and peer tutors will provide their reactions as readers, but do not edit your writing. Tutors respond via email within 48 hours. Online tutoring also provides service in the evenings and on weekends.

Requests for online tutoring can be submitted seven days a week, 24 hours a day here.
