Effective Tutoring for Nursing: A Guide for Peer Tutors.
Eardley, Carla Jean
Intended for upper-level students in nursing and related professions who have been selected to work as peer tutors, this book was designed to help peer tutors become a caring, competent resource for nursing students through independent study. The book attempts to lay the theoretical groundwork for understanding tutoring as a legitimate aspect of the larger field of learning assistance within a holistic framework. After a brief introduction, unit 1, "Orientation to Tutoring," describes attributes of a successful tutor; teacher-tutor relationships; tutor-student relationships; tutor-institution relationships; the multidimensional role of the tutor; goals and objectives; critical thinking; awareness of learning processes; and successful interpersonal skills. Unit 2, "The Learning Process," covers the following topics: preparation, input, processing, storage, output, learning styles and modalities, blocks to successful learning, situational blocks, internal blocks, and learning skills and the nursing curriculum. Unit 3, "Keys to Successful Tutoring," includes information on holistic thinking; creating communication; organizing the tutoring session; diagnosing student problems; and strategies for when problems arise. The final unit offers "Practical Strategies for Nursing Tutors," focusing on language skills and nursing tasks; active reading strategies for mastering nursing texts; tutoring for writing; nursing math; and test-taking and study skills.
