Tutoring. The Guidance and Counselling Role of the Tutor in Vocational Preparation.
Miller, John C.
Addressed to adults working in a tutorial capacity with young people engaged in the process of vocational preparation, this manual offers ideas, poses issues, and describes skills and tasks that will help tutors to develop their work with students--either on their own or through staff development programs. The aims of vocational preparation, guidance, and guidance in vocational preparation are examined. In a discussion of stages of tutorial intervention, the following stages through which students pass in each opportunity are covered: selection, induction, experience, and transition. Defined are various tasks of the tutor, including negotiating, contracting, informing, advising, counseling, referring, assessing, coaching, disciplining, feeding-back, evaluating, and refereeing. The values of openness, equality of worth, and trust are addressed. Dealt with next are various multiple, specific, and ancillary skills, including attending, observing, listening, responding, questioning, timing and pacing, personalizing, target-setting, confrontation, recordkeeping, and self-evaluation. Issues related to tutoring in group, individual, and organizational settings are confronted. Following a synthesis of the above-mentioned components of tutoring, several organizational issues are addressed. Appended are resource sheets on such topics as referral agents, sample job descriptions, pitfalls, and potential advantages and risks of various systems of tutoring. (MN)
