Dear Diana,

Another alternative is to require demonstrated tutoring effectiveness that can be accomplished either
by taking a tutor training course (5-10 weeks) or self-directed reading and pre/post assessment (2-4 weeks).

Each requires the demonstration of tutoring effectiveness by the prospective tutor.

Many nationally that use an adopted text (i.e. The Master Tutor by Dr. Ross MacDonald) and pre/post
assessment (The TESAT-Tutor Evaluation and Self Assessment Tool) offer such options.  Plus, training
is standardized in all department/disciplines/offices/grant programs by using the same approach so
tutors can work campus-wide over the years.

Time is not the issue.  Results are!

I hope this helps.

Thank you to all who have responded to my query about requiring students to take a
tutor training class.  I know I can always depend on this group of professionals.

Hello,

This is an old subject, but because my college has transformed our tutor training courses, questions have been raised from our department as to whether or not we can require new and current tutors to take the level one course.  We have always encouraged them to enroll in the course, but can there be a requirement to do so? 

Please advise.
Thank you.
