Guidebook for Tutors with an Emphasis on Tutoring Minority Children.
Cohen, Andrew D.; And Others
The purpose of this manual is to illustrate different approaches to tutoring with examples from tutoring English language skills, science, and math. Many of the tutoring principles discussed with reference to these subjects can be applied to tutoring in other subject areas. The Guidebook discusses issues associated with tutoring across ethnic group and social class. A tutor's relationship with his tutee will probably be more successful if the tutor keeps in mind the differences between himself and the tutee, and if he deals with these differences sensibly. The manual provides a checklist of steps to take before, during, and after tutoring. Each tutor's relationship with a tutee is a unique experience and the tutor must be himself. However, he should be mindful that he is intervening in a well-established social system which has its rules of propriety. This manual suggests ways of assessing the tutee's engagement as a means of feedback to the tutor. Engagement depends on several things at once. The tutor must develop a close personal contact with the tutee. Achieving engagement depends in part on the materials that the tutor chooses for the session and in part on how the tutor uses the materials. An annotated bibliography is included to suggest materials for use in tutoring. (Author/JM)
