A Training Program for Student Mathematics Tutors.
This mathematics peer-tutoring program offers students an opportunity to seek help with specific mathematical difficulties from peer-tutors. The program is designed to free faculty to offer outside-of-class help to students who are experiencing extreme difficulty in understanding concepts. In addition, the tutors are available to offer help during the evening when faculty are not usually available. The training program is designed to train tutors to use procedures which take advantage of the unique tutor-tutee relationship. The program emphasizes the establishment of an atmosphere to promote learning and a teaching strategy that concentrates on student involvement. (MP)
