The introduction explains the document's major purposes and defines relevant terms. Chapter 1 lists standards regarding the following elements of management of quality tutoring programs: mission statement, relevant goals, governance, community relations, resource development, financial management, personnel management, and facilities. Presented in chapter 2 are standards related to the following student elements: student outreach, recruitment, intake, and orientation; matching; and ongoing student support.
