Self-Sufficiency in Dialogue: Not for Tutors Only.
Butler, Beverly A.; And Others
This training manual provides information for the instructors (tutors) of the Shippensburg University Learning Assistance Center (LAC). It discusses the need for tutoring, what the tutoring program is about, and who should be encouraged to attend tutoring sessions. Also, through chapters written by educators with experience in the tutoring process, the manual addresses such areas as coping with mathematics and math anxiety, dealing with different learning styles, setting goals and pacing oneself, assisting the inefficient college learner, and working with professors within the institution. Other discussions include the criteria for selecting tutors, tutor evaluation, Learning Assistance Center workshops, and an examination of the campus resources available to the Learning Assistance Center. The program brochure is included. (GLR)
