Tutoring is a one-on-one meeting with someone who knows a subject well and can help you improve your reading, writing, grammar, and study skills. Our tutors are trained to help you with writing projects and studying for any subject. Tutoring allows you to move at your own pace and create your own goals.
It is important to understand that tutors do not edit or fix your papers. Instead, tutors help you develop the skills you need to improve your own work.
All students enrolled at DVC may have up to two hours of free tutoring per week.

Supplemental instruction (SI) is a free program that helps students in our basic English and ESL classes. Classes with supplemental instruction have an hour-long weekly study group in addition to their regular class time. These study groups provide an opportunity to build on the skills and conversations started in class and are led by SI leaders who also attend the regular class time.
Supplemental instruction is required for: ESL, 67, ESL77, ESL87, and ESL97A. Additionally, some 117A, 122AL, and 122L courses have SI with optional study groups.
