The Use of Tutors in the Santa Barbara City College Reading Program.
Adams, W. Royce
The origin and development of a tutorial program for community college students experiencing difficulties in reading, mathematics, and writing are described. The program began as a voluntary effort by students and faculty members and has developed into a highly organized program with state support and plentiful materials, supplies, and facilities. Two types of tutors are involved in the program, both working under the guidance of reading laboratory faculty. One type is paid and works in the laboratory at least 15 hours per week. He is in charge of a designated number of tutees and works with them individually and in small groups. The other type is a volunteer who works with one or two individuals under the direction of a reading laboratory instructor. Both types attend weekly meetings and monthly training sessions. The tutors utilize a combination of prepared skill building materials and the students' own class work in working with tutees and provide some counseling service when needed. Formal evaluation data on the effectiveness of the program is not yet available, but informal evidence seems to point to general effectiveness. Tables and references are included. (MS)
