Tutoring Center

The Tutoring Center provides FREE tutoring for currently enrolled DCC students in a wide range of subject areas. Tutors are available for specific subjects and will assist students in developing effective learning strategies.  Tutors provide academic support that helps students to develop the critical learning skills that make them better learners.  Tutoring services are designed to support and enhance classroom learning.  All academic support services are available for free to currently-enrolled students.  For more information on tutoring services, call (434) 797-6432 or email  tutoring@danville.edu.

For Students

Tutoring services are available by appointment only.  Students should bring all textbooks, notes, and syllabus so that the tutor can properly assist. Tutoring is only available for students who are currently enrolled in the DCC course for which they are requesting tutoring.

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions. SI sessions are regularly scheduled, informal review group sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and predict test items. All students are encouraged to attend SI sessions, as it is a voluntary program. The group sessions are facilitated by SI Leaders, who attend all class lectures, take notes, and integrate course content and study skills while working together. SI is a free service offered to all students in a targeted course. Supplemental instruction is a non-remedial approach to learning as the program targets high-risk courses rather than high-risk students.
