About Tutoring

Due to the coronavirus (COVID 19) crisis, all tutoring centers are closed to walk-in tutoring. Please check the specific tutoring area for updates on remote and online tutoring and support, or visit the Academic Support Center for help getting connected. NetTutor (free online tutoring) is available to all students through any Canvas course.

Tutoring at the Pleasant Hill and San Ramon campuses is available free of charge to all DVC students who seek help or are referred by an instructor. Tutoring instructional assistance in various academic subjects is provided by trained peer tutors and by instructional assistants. Our goal is to ensure that students enrolled at Diablo Valley College receive the academic support they need to succeed in their classes.
