Melissa (and all)
A very excellent book is Steven C. Ender and Fred B. Newton's "Students
Helping Students." (A guide for peer educators on college campuses).  It is
available from Jossey-Bass Publishers (www.josseybass.com) and the ISBN is
0-7879-4459-9.  The book is very new, and contains a nice mix of theory and
practice, especially in the sections on understanding group process, problem
solving with individuals and strategies for Academic Success.  We use it  to
train tutors, peer mentors and SI Leaders.  We also use the video-based
series from North Carolina State University Undergraduate Studies Tutorial
Center.   Very good and specific to tutor training.   Lee Ann
