Tutoring services are available by appointment only. The Tutoring Center coordinator selects a tutor for the student, and then contacts the student with the time and date of the tutoring session. 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.
Tutoring is FREE!
Tutors at DCC are either Peer Tutors, who are referred to the Tutoring Center by their instructors or Professional Tutors who have advanced degrees, certification, or experience in their fields.
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.
DCC's Tutoring Center is nationally certified by the College Reading and Learning Association.
