About The Learning Centre

The Learning Centre is here to help you become a successful student in your courses. 

In the Learning Centre, peer tutors work with you to improve your academic skills (writing, reading, study, math and computer skills) and your understanding of course concepts. Peer tutors are students who are hired and trained by the Learning Centre. They are not college instructors; when they can't help you, they may refer you to a Learning Centre faculty member or to your instructor.

All services provided by the Learning Centre are free to Douglas College students.
