Designing A Training Program for Tutor/Advisers.
This paper describes a training program designed to train paraprofessional student assistants for the dual positions of peer tutor and peer adviser. Skills related to study strategies, reading comprehension improvement, time management, and test-taking are detailed as methods for trainees to develop skills in the cognitive and affective learning domains. The goals of the in-service training program are stated and program evaluation criteria are enumerated. Tables are included that outline the: (1) role and skills of a peer adviser; (2) role and skills of a peer tutor; (3) general orientation to the program and position of adviser/tutor; (4) development of student study habits and attitudes, communication skills, and flexibility and sensitivity in working with students with special learning needs; and (5) the evaluation of skills, student development, and the program.
