You Can Use “What Works” TutorLink Practices to Change Fs to As, Bs and Cs.
“Why do increasing numbers of students have academic difficulty and flock to tutors for help? Why are parents so frustrated? They say, “If something could just motivate my son or daughter, I know he or she would do better”.
As tutors, we should know what we are supposed to do when a student asks us for help. Although every student presents a different scenario, most have some common denominators.
What does the research within our profession tell us about these common denominators? How can we easily utilize the denominators in simple equations to improve the probability of success?
Statistics teaches us that achieving simplicity is often a complex process. Let us first try to define The Tutoring Process1 in simple terms. Then, we will insert the common denominators to discover how tutors can help frustrated students learn how to solve their own problems.
TutorLink's “what works” research-based proven and promising methods, practices, assessments, and evaluations will pleasantly surprise you."
