Peer Tutoring

Every year competent, experienced students are trained and equipped to serve their fellow students as tutors in a wide variety of subjects. Tutorials may take one of three formats: individual sessions, small group tutorials of two to four students, and large group study sessions.

Students desiring tutorial assistance can make an appointment by calling the Academic Skills (ASK) Center desk at (712) 722-6487, by stopping at the desk during our regular hours, or by completing an online request form (this form is available on DC Central, a site available only to current students). Most students using the ASK Center choose on their own to seek assistance. Some may also be referred by their instructor, advisor, or other college personnel.


The Academic Skills Center tries to accommodate as many requests for tutoring as possible. Proofreading is available in any course or for applications. Please call us at (712) 722-6487, and we will try to find someone to help you!
