We’ve been hard at work compiling resources and information to help you in running the most effective peer tutoring programs for your students. For example, in our last article, we featured Dana Monaghan, founder of Teach Tutors – a training resource for peer tutors and instructional aides. We get excited when we stumble on useful tutor training resources because as you probably know, the success of a peer tutoring program is largely dependent on tutor effectiveness. Here’s an article by the National Tutoring Association on the importance of training peer tutors.
Aside from tutor training, there are a number of other useful materials that have recently been added to our growing library of peer tutoring resources:
