Spring 2020 classes have resumed online.Please visit
dcccd.edu/coronavirus for additional information and to
learn how to prepare for online classes.
During group tutoring sessions, students work with an experienced tutor
who serves as the facilitator for group discussions and problem solving.
The tutor is trained in group study techniques that encourage active
learning, and students are encouraged to build problem-solving and
critical thinking skills with their classmates. Group tutoring sessions
last one hour, but students are welcome to stay in the center and
receive additional one-on-one help before or after the session.
Math Group Tutoring
Group tutoring for math is offered at the course level; students should
come to the session scheduled for the course in which they are currently
Writing Group Tutoring
Writing group tutoring is organized by topic. Each week, we will focus
on a different writing skill such as writing effective thesis
statements, using MLA format, correcting fragments and run-ons, and
preparing for the ICE. Students in ALL levels of writing, as well as
students in other courses, are welcome to attend any writing group
Group Tutoring Policy
A minimum of three students must show up for a group tutoring session
in order to guarantee an hour session. If fewer than three students
show up during a group tutoring time, the tutor will get the student(s)
started but cannot devote a full hour of undivided attention; the tutor
will step away to assist other students in the center while periodically
checking on the student(s) in group tutoring.
