If you will continue tutoring/assisting during finals week this might be a good time to project ahead and look at what kind of situations will come up with students as they prepare for finals. Many new tutors are not ready for the pace during finals week is what we have found. Also, dealing with the students that are so emotional and have to pass their final to pass the class. My tutors are wiped after this week and its helps to get a veteran to chime in also.
Just some thoughts.

Subject: Final Semester Training
I am currently planning our final peer tutor training and the topic is Role Modeling. I have a few scenarios, but I want to spice it up a bit. I chose this for our last training this semester because I thought it would be educational as well as fun for my tutors, but after an entire semester of training dedicated to an attempt to achieve CRLA level one tutor certification, I am thinking the scenarios I have are to basic for my brilliant tutors! I have a combination of subject specific and study skills tutors that make up my 31 member crew, and most are undergraduates.
The training is on Friday, so any great ideas would be very much appreciated!
