Faculty Involvement: The Key to a Successful Tutoring Program.
Sexauer, Celeste Burns; Fuller, Janet A.
One college's examination of its tutoring program led to conclusions that can be applied to many tutoring programs. The most important conclusion was that faculty should be involved in as many stages of the tutorial process as possible. Specifically, five conditions should be met to create a productive teacher tutor relationship: (1) the teacher should have a central role in choosing the tutor for the class, (2) the teacher and tutor should understand the goals of the developmental program, (3) the teacher and tutor should understand their respective authority and responsibility, (4) the tutor should be present and involved in classes, and (5) the teacher and tutor should share their insights, problems, and suggestions. To improve faculty involvement, tutorial coordinators should promote teacher participation in the planning, recruiting, functioning, supervising and evaluating of tutorial programs. (A bibliography of resources concerning tutoring in higher education is included.) (JL)
