About the Learning Centre
The Learning Centre is the peer tutoring and writing centre for Douglas College students. Students can book tutoring sessions online or by visiting the Learning Centre for help with:
- Writing for all Douglas College courses
- Course content for select first-year courses
- Study skills to improve oral presentations, note-taking, study strategies, test preparation and time management
- English language tutoring for written and spoken English language skills for Douglas College classes, provided by TESL-trained, professional tutors
Students who prefer online feedback on their writing can submit written assignments to an online writing tutor for feedback. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Peer Tutors in the Learning Centre are students taking classes at Douglas or other post-secondary institutions who are hired based on instructor recommendation, academic performance and the ability to understand their own learning. Peer tutors benefit from paid training (including international certification as a tutor), leadership opportunities and participating in a learner-driven community. The Learning Centre is currently accepting applications for Fall 2019.
