Welcome to Tutoring: Grades 3, 4, 5, 6.
Deering, Albert R.
This manual for tutors participating in the Homework Helper Program (which employs high school students or graduates as tutors for elementary school students) opens with generalizations of the characteristics of third, fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students intended as a base of understanding for tutors. The next section focuses on the varying individual needs of children and presents desirable activities to be used in creating an individual program of instruction (including showing affection, using praise, creating unambiguous and successful learning situations, and developing warm relationships with pupils). Comprising the major portion of the document are excerpts from "Helpful Hints" papers written by former tutors which are designed to help tutors develop a good relationship with their pupils and function more effectively as tutors. The final section explores considerations in planning tutorial sessions including the use of time during a session and short and long range goals. (SM)
