“I wouldn’t think of training tutors at the college level without the use of The Tutor’s Guide! This is my thirteenth year of using this very effective series. If it is this helpful at the college level, I can only imagine how helpful it must be to secondary and elementary levels.” Lou Ann Sears, University of Pittsburgh March 2010.
Every year junior high through adult-level tutorial center directors face a staff of new tutors, eager to do a good job, yet anxious about the responsibilities of tutoring, and probably at a loss for any role model of an educator other than the classroom instructor.
Obviously these tutors need training. To tutor confidently and effectively they need to understand the unique educational function of peer tutoring and the practical techniques that make for successful tutoring. On the other hand, extensive training programs are a luxury few tutorial centers can afford. Funds are usually limited, and the students who need tutors need them now.
Using excerpts from actual tutoring sessions, The Tutor's Guidepresents basic principles of peer tutoring and illustrates practical strategies for achieving these goals.
Selected from over 100 hours of actual tutoring sessions, the illustrative segments give inexperienced tutors a vivd and varied picture of what tutoring is actually like. Lively graphics, lucid narratives and summary outlines emphasize the principles illustrated.
Each program is self-contained and meaningful on its own, but the programs complement each other and together provide a comprehensive training program.
