Students using the Student Success Center's resources


Student Success Center (SSC) is located on the third floor of the Venters Business Building on Heritage Campus. The SSC is committed to providing students with the facilities, resources and services designed to enhance learning. DMC students will find peer tutoring, workshops and seminars, and technology resources to assist them to succeed and promote positive learning outcomes. Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an additional service that is housed at the SSC.

Peer Tutoring

Peer tutoring refers to students working in pairs to help one another learn material or practice an academic task in a peer-to-peer environment. For the tutor, it can be a comprehensive career experience. For the student, it's an opportunity to learn from another student who is "on their level." Tutoring sessions usually occur in a small group or one-on-one tutoring sessions.
