Learning Center


Welcome to Diné College Learning Center, where we offer academic tutoring and a variety of learning support to enrolled students. Peer and Professional Tutors at the Diné College Learning Center assists students in developing positive academic independence and act as an academic support system for students that are confronted with academic challenges.

Mission Statement
To ensure support services to enhance student learning.

What is the Learning Center?
The Diné College Learning Center, better known on campus as the LC, is a multi-faceted academic support program for all Diné College students. We provide tutoring services (individual, group, and online) study skills workshops, and learning specialists free of charge to all Diné College students.

Our website contributes information to help you succeed in college, whether you are a first-semester student seeking help in mathematics, a continuing student looking for tips to improve your writing, or an undergraduate senior preparing for graduate school. We also post the schedules of our other resources such as upcoming workshops, webinars and events so you will know when and where to find us throughout the week.

While I hope that you will explore our web site and learn more about our services, we also encourage you to come see the LC the next time you are on campus. We’re easy to find on the campus, so feel free to stop by and speak with our friendly staff, pick up a few helpful handouts, and see why Diné College Learning Center students visit us over 500 times each semester.



One-on-One Tutoring
Our goal is to help you overcome academic challenges and become an independent learner. One-on-One tutoring is the most effective and efficient way to succeed in your courses.


Routine Tutoring
On-going sessions are great for monitoring and evaluating your progress over the course of a semester. Scheduling routine sessions are subject for review to accommodate you and a tutor’s schedule.


Study Group Session
At the Learning Center, we provide a guided study session for a group of three or more students in the same section of a course. A Professional Tutor facilitates all scheduled Study group sessions.


Request a Workshop
Workshops are a great tool to study and comprehend the materials in your courses. Workshops often include engaging presentations and hands-on activities, and hosted by a Professional Tutor.


Free Printing Service
Free printing and copying services are now available at all Diné College Learning Center sites for all currently enrolled students. Pickup times and locations may vary by campus site. Click below to get started.


Proofreading Dropbox
Sometimes valuable feedback comes too late, which is why we made it easier for you to simply drop-off your assignment online for tutors to review grammar, punctuation, and spelling errors.

Requesting for Tutoring Services
Diné College Learning Center provides students with easy access to qualified tutors in as many academic areas as possible. Students in need of tutoring must submit a request online that details their name, student ID #, and course number in which they need tutoring. After submitting an online request, a student will receive a confirmation email immediately. A tutor will then contact the student to gather more material from you to prepare for your session, before the requested date and time of your appointment.

**During this time, all tutoring appointments will be conducted virtually utilizing Zoom, ConexEdu, GoBoard or other video-conferencing platforms.**
