Brunet, Andree; Quesnel, Robert
This report offers a rationale for student-centered tutoring, explains the basic tools a tutor must possess to implement the approach, and identifies the personal qualifications and skills needed by a tutor. Chapter 1 defines tutoring, making a distinction between student-based and content-based tutoring, and discusses the principles and components of student-based tutoring. This chapter also presents survey results provided by educational counselors and program directors on tutorial programs in the public and private colleges in Quebec. In chapter 2, survey results from professors involved with tutoring programs, regarding issues such as the need for tutoring; objective and attitudinal conditions for setting up a student-centered tutorial program; and the student clientele are presented. Chapter 3 focuses on the role of the professor beyond the transmission of knowledge, examines the concept of mentoring, and identifies five levels of attitudes and behaviors needed in tutors. Chapter 4 examines methods of implementing student-centered tutorial programs at the college level and within Quebec as a whole. A conclusion highlights the challenges professors face with this educational method. Appendixes provide the survey instrument, sample responses, and discussions on the role of the tutor. (Author/JMC)
