I use a DVD and its accompanying study guide which were produced by North Carolina State University for part of my undergraduate math teaching assistants' training. They start some great discussions as trainees add their own stories. I am not using them online, but I may look into it in the future.

There is a bit of money left over at the end of the fiscal year and I'd
like to purchase some new tutor training materials. Books, DVDs,
whatever you have used and recommend-I'd love to hear about them. I'm
especially interested in any material which focuses on training online
tutors and the differences between face-to-face and online tutoring.
