Get free tutoring online from the Learning Centre
By the Learning Centre
With the relatively sudden transition to distance education, it can feel like you’re now studying and completing you courses all alone. But there are still tutoring services and assignment help available to you through the Douglas College Learning Centre – all from a safe distance.
As Douglas College transitions to online classes, the Learning Centre has moved all of our tutoring online to continue to support you in your learning.
What is the Learning Centre?
The Learning Centre is the peer tutoring and writing centre for Douglas College. We provide free tutoring and academic support for all Douglas College students. A peer tutor can help with study skills to improve oral presentations, note-taking, study strategies, test preparation and time management. Here are the services available to you online:
- Submit a Draft to an online tutor: We have added hours to our current online writing tutoring service to review and provide online feedback on drafts of your writing assignments.
- Chat with a tutor: All of our tutors are available for online appointments. You can check the schedule to make an appointment to chat online.
- New resources: Additional resources are now available on the Learning Centre website to help you transition to online learning, including creating a schedule for online learning
Who are the peer tutors?
Peer tutors are students taking classes at Douglas or other post-secondary institutions. They are hired based on instructor recommendation, academic performance and more.
