Tutoring. PEPNet Tipsheet
Orlando, Richard, Comp.
Tutoring, as defined for this tipsheet, is a student-driven interaction in which a tutor is enlisted to explain and clarify academic content and/or instructions to a deaf or hard-of-hearing student. It is assumed that the tutor is not fluent in the use of sign language, the student's primary mode of communication is signed communication, tutoring interactions do not take place in the classroom, and the tutor is either a teaching faculty member or a special education staff member. This tipsheet explores the characteristics of an ideal tutoring session.
