Get help from fellow students at the Learning Centre

By Reija Roberts, Learning Centre Services Coordinator

Is philosophy giving you fits? Is APA absolutely agonizing? Is Excel making you enraged? If so, you may want to check out the Douglas College Learning Centre for free help with your courses.

The Learning Centre uses a student-led approach to learning. Our peer tutors are students, just like you, taking classes at Douglas or other post-secondary institutions. They can help you evaluate and improve your writing, coursework and study skills. With locations at both the Coquitlam and New Westminster campuses, the Learning Centre provides free academic support services for all Douglas College students.

How it works

From the Learning Centre homepage, you can register for an account and book your own appointments. Each student can book up to two hours of tutoring every week. This can be two 50-minute appointments, one 50-minute appointment and two 25-minute appointments, or four 25-minute appointments. You can also join a study group (see our schedule for details). Appointment bookings can be made online, by phone or by visiting the centre.

The Learning Centre also offers online tutoring, where you can send your written assignments for help from an online tutor. It is available 24 hours, seven days a week.

The Learning Centre is open during the following hours for the Fall 2018 semester, starting on Tuesday, Sept. 4.
