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:

Peer tutors can meet with you in-person (20/50-minute sessions) at New West and Coquitlam campus or via Zoom (25/55-minute sessions). 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. 

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.
