About Us

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.



We are hiring!

The Learning Centre is recruiting writing peer tutors for the fall semester. Successful candidates have strong writing skills, high emotional intelligence, strong communication skills, ability to interpret assignment instructions and criteria for writing assignments, and the ability to follow ethical practices and internal procedures.

Candidates must have a cumulative GPA of a 3.00 or higher (a "B" average or better) in 12 credits of work completed at a post-secondary institution in British Columbia. Additional criteria apply. 

Does this sound like you? Please attend our information session on how to become a writing tutor. If you can’t attend, please apply or contact us.

Info sessions

Both sessions will be taking place at the New Westminster campus Learning Centre (N2105 located inside the Library)

Tuesday, July 17th from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Wednesday, July 18th from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.


Online tutoring

Online writing tutors are available to review your papers and assignments. Submit your paper today. Online tutors respond within 48 hours.

Drop-in tutoring for Chemistry

Need help learning how to study for your chemistry course? A peer tutor is available Wednesdays from 1:30pm-3:30pm for drop-in help in the CHEM multipurpose room (S3730) at the New Westminster campus.


Anatomy and Physiology (BIOL 1103/1109/1203) Study Group
The peer-led Anatomy and Physiology study group starts on Thursday, May 24, 2:00-3:30pm, and runs weekly until the end of the semester. This group meets at the Coquitlam campus. You can register before attending or just drop-in to get more information. 


Need some help figuring out your next steps?

Consultation Appointment

Choose "Consultation" as what you'd like to "Get Help with..." when you make an appointment, and you can reserve one-on-one time with a tutor to discuss your tutoring needs. The tutor can provide help with basic study skills and recommend strategies or additional tutoring resources. 

The Front Desk
Don't have time to make an appointment? Or not sure if you need one? You can stop in to the Learning Centre on either campus during our open hours to talk to the peer tutor at the front desk. If they can't answer your question, they can help you find the resources you need.
