Tutoring: Strategies for Successful Learning. By Request Series.
This booklet is part of a series of reports on "hot topics" in education. When educators build on informal tutoring processes and create organized processes of tutoring, it can become a powerful tool for learning, whether it is peer tutoring, cross-age tutoring, or parent/volunteer tutoring. Tutoring benefits students, who receive individual instruction tailored to the skills they need to master. It benefits tutors, who have an increased sense of pride, accomplishment, and self-esteem and may develop increased academic mastery themselves. Tutoring can also benefit teachers, who have more time for monitoring the individual student. Seven successful tutoring programs from the northwestern United States, most of which are in urban areas, are described. Suggestions are offered for implementing a program and training the tutors, and some potential pitfalls to avoid in establishing a tutoring program are outlined. (Contains 12 references.) (SLD)
