Get tutored at the 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 here to help get you up to speed.

Weekly, ongoing tutoring
If you want ongoing help with skill development, sign up to work with a peer-tutor for the Fall term 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 beginning the first day of classes on the Learning Centre website.

Drop-in tutoring

Beginning Sept. 17, The Learning Centre at both campuses will have 25-minute drop-in times available for writing, study skills and course content help throughout the term. Log in to MyDouglas or online student registration to reserve a tutoring session up to one week in advance.

Online tutoring
Available Sept. 10, online tutoring is to help you with your writing skills. Send in questions and drafts, and peer tutors 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.
Submit your requests for online tutoring seven days a week, 24 hours a day.

New this term!
Beginning in October, technology tutors will be available for help in the Douglas College Library. Ever had trouble figuring out how to add page numbers to a Word document? These tutors can help you learn to use Blackboard, MSOffice, and other software needs for your course assignments.

All Learning Centre tutoring is FREE to Douglas College students. Hours, locations, services and policies are available on the Learning Centre website.
