“I look forward to sharing my expertise, best practices and research in the field of college tutoring to help you manage a program which better serves the students on your campus.ヤ
~ Johanna Dvorak, Ph.D.
Webinar Presenter

Colleges and universities have long incorporated tutoring in their retention efforts. However, it is often up to academic support professionals to develop best practices and make their programs visible on campus. This webinar will assist college tutoring coordinators and professionals in improving their programs and tutoring practices and will explore specific strategies tutoring professionals can use to best help students succeed academically.

Tutoring services, for example, have expanded to include varieties of group tutoring and online tutoring to adapt to the needs of today's students. Participants will be guided on how to develop these services to help students succeed. We will also discuss types of services that should be offered, organizing space and services, staffing and evaluation procedures, tutor training, and advertising services.

Participants will be able to gain ideas for best tutoring practices in the following areas:
  1. Organizing their centers: Offering various types of tutoring services such as appointment, walk-in, weekly group sessions, online tutoring or related models such as Supplemental Instruction.
  2. Organizing space: current space, expanding space, starting new or satellite centers
  3. Tutor Training: types of training, best tutoring practices
  4. Raising the visibility of our tutoring centers: marketing, campus connections
