Center for Academic Success

Tutor Training

The Center for Academic Success facilitates content area tutoring by offering training for students approved as tutors by their department or program.

Training sessions may be requested by contacting James Dyksen.

Before attending the training workshop, tutors are required to complete a review of the following material:

  1. Reading: MacDonald, Ross B. (2000). The Master Tutor: A Guidebook for More Effective Tutoring. 2nd Edition. Williamsville, NY: Cambridge Stratford Study Skills Institute. Chapters 1 and 2. 
  2. Copies of The Master Tutor are available at the Office of Academic & Career Success, Edison Building 1810H
  3. Preview the slide presentation:

The in-person training workshop will then focus on practical concerns for both effective individual and group tutoring.

Follow-up meetings will be scheduled to support tutors on an ongoing basis, and Center for Academic Success staff are always available to support both tutors and tutees.
