The website for Let Me Learn is www.letmelearn.org
   
  Also, I'd appreciate any insight on comparing "Let Me Learn" and the "4MAT System", by Bernice McCarthy: http://www.aboutlearning.com/.  I learned about the 4MAT system at NTA's spring conference.  It seems to me that Let Me Learn has more practical applications.  I'd like to use one of these programs as part of my tutor training, or at least introduce my tutors to the concept.
   
  Also, has anyone looked into any of the online tutor training programs that are available out there?  Any thoughts on the "Cmbridge and Stratford" online tutor training program?  
   
  I'd like to make it a requirement for my tutors to obtain some sort of tutor training prior to working with students, but I don't have the resources to provide on-site training.  I've looked at a couple of different online tutor training programs, but I either did not like the content or they were cost-prohibitive.  As of right now, I have decided to require  my tutors to read the book "Tutoring Matters" by Jerome Rabow and reflect on each chapter by wiriting a short essay.  Any suggestions or insights will be greatly appreciated.
   
  Thank you,

Sounds really interesting so I clicked on the link, but it took me to a
commercial site! I'll Google the university. Thanks for the info.

Subject: Re: Study Skills Workshops - request for research

My studies on learning self-efficacy and student agency suggest students
need to formulate new mental models or study strategy instruction
becomes simply a superficial exercise that does not transfer to new
settings. 

I studied the impact of metacognnitive instruction for developmental
readers and found that when they participated in meaningful discourse
about their thinking while learning the discoveries led to significant
measurable differences.

You may want to look at the new technology out of the Center for the
Advancement of Learning at Rowan University, I think the web address is
www.lml.org . Their Integrated Learning Model(ILM) incorporates some
very leading edge brain theory and interesting meta-awareness
training.As a learning model it has far more practical application than
any learning style research I have seen in my 24 years as an educator.

Hi Carol,
If you are looking for research, not too long ago the Learning
Assistance Review Journal had a very good study that indicated GPA is
not a good measure of Learning Strategies Programs, but that other
factors did improve such as efficacy and self-regulation - sorry I
cannot find it right now so I don't know the author.

We are less concerned about the number of attendees and more concerned
with motivation underlying attending - are they looking for a quick fix
or do they realize that they likely need to find new and better ways to
work.

Hi Carol,
