How long will it take to start a tutoring program?
With some planning, tutoring programs can be quickly implemented. Most schools report that they are able to start producing positive reports and results after one semester. Many tutoring Directors report that they did not have any assistance or training and jumped into the task without guidance. Most agree that having a model program with strong tutor training components and information on goals, methods, and procedures would have been extremely valuable had they been available.
