Connect with a tutor

Professional tutors are available to help you identify and improve English language reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. English Language Tutors work with you on the English skills you need in the Douglas College courses you are currently taking.

You can get feedback on your writing from an English Language tutor in two ways:

REAL-TIME
Peer tutors can meet with you in-person for 25/55-minute sessions in-person at the New West or Coquitlam campus or via Zoom. This Fall tutors are available in-person at New West and Coquitlam and via zoom. Your tutor can also reserve ongoing sessions for you for a few weeks at a time to work together on specific assignments and skills. 

SUBMIT A DRAFT
Upload your writing assignments, and tutors will respond with questions, feedback and resources to improve your writing.

English Language tutors also facilitate Learning Centre workshops to focus on academic strategies and language learning.
