Workshop Descriptions

Overview

As a new tutor it is important to remember that the student is the focus of your session and her/his specific academic support needs are the reason for your work together. That means that the student should determine the goals for the session; the specific content to work on; how much time to spend on each problem or question (within the framework of the overall time allotted to your tutoring session) and if additional appointments are necessary. In other words, it "isn't about you!"

However, you obviously play a large role in the success of the tutoring session. Your primary roles are to guide the student through the problem or concepts; to help the tutee gain confidence; and to help the tutee learn effective study techniques so that s/he can become a more independent learner.

Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Define the role of the tutor and the tutee in a tutoring session and differentiate between the two
  • Construct a mock introduction to a first meeting with a tutee
  • Discuss what takes place before, during and after a tutoring session
  • Explain verbally and in writing the recommended structure for a one hour tutoring session

Overview

Although most students come to tutoring sessions to get answers to specific questions or to get solutions to homework problems, what they really need is help with developing the critical thinking skills that would allow them to answer their own questions and/or to develop their own problem solving strategies. This session will provide a definition of critical thinking, and will show tutors how to teach their students specific learning strategies that lead to better critical thinking skills.

Objectives

After completing this session the tutors will be able to:

  • Explain the differences between what most students want from a tutoring session and what students need from a tutoring session
  • Define critical thinking and identify the thinking skills that tutors can teach students
  • Demonstrate strategies for teaching students to think critically
  • Discuss the role of metacognition, Bloom's taxonomy and the study cycle in helping students develop critical thinking skills
  • Model metacognitive thinking for their tutees

Overview

There are some unique qualities of a writing tutoring, making it different from tutoring subject areas like math or French. Writing tutors must be able to assist students at a variety of stages of the writing process, from brainstorming through polishing, and must be able to provide support on areas such as citing sources and using grammar correctly, writing thesis statements, and organizing ideas. This TutorLingo training will give tutors the tools for effectively helping students improve their writing. While there are some unique aspects to tutoring writing, this training will also cover best practices that can be generalized to all tutoring as well, such as actively engaging students in their sessions and encouraging students to be active learners.

Objectives

After completing this session the tutors will be able to:

  • Identify the key elements of a writing tutorial
  • Apply strategies to help tutees at varying levels of preparation and ability
  • Examine and prioritize tutees' writing concerns for their tutoring session
  • Discover ways to handle tutees' grammar concerns
  • Acquire an understanding of plagiarism and demonstrate ways of handling plagiarism in tutees' writing

Description

Tutors take on many different roles when engaging in a tutoring session or being part of a tutoring center. Tutors often believe that their sole role is to work with students on course material; however, the roles of a tutor include one-on-one facilitation, small group facilitation, mentoring as well as someone who reinforces study strategies, promotes independent learning and models positive, constructive academic behavior. As important as all these roles are, there are other roles that tutors should not take on. This training module addresses these issues and more. After participating in this video, tutors will have a clearer understanding of their role(s) and the limits of their role(s).

Objectives

After completing this session the tutors will be able to:

  • Differentiate between teachers and tutors
  • Define what a tutor is
  • Define the Do's and Don'ts of Tutoring
  • Discover the limits of a tutor's role
  • Learn questioning techniques as a facilitator of learning
  • Acquire knowledge which will lead to a clear understanding of the various roles a tutor
  • Understand the relationship between the tutor and the faculty

Description

In this video, Steve shares his insights with tutors on how to be effective teachers because effective tutors are, in fact, effective teachers. Effective tutors build relationships, identify challenges, break down steps and strategies, build skills and reinforce progress with practice. Once connecting on these levels, the tutors can begin their journey to help the tutee progress in simple, specific, slow, and steady steps. Steve will demonstrate how specific interventions/strategies can multiple their effectiveness across study skills by scaffolding. Though addressing three separate yet typical challenge areas (note-taking, reading, and testing), he helps the tutor connect each area by identifying warning signs and red flags and then applying simple interventions. The tutors are given opportunities to master the interventions themselves with strategically-placed "Time to Reflect" exercises to practice the skills. This further drives home the point that effective tutors have to be effective teachers and effective teachers model the behaviors they want their students to adopt.

Objectives:

By the end of this video, students will be able to:

  • Identify typical warning signs and red-flag behaviors common with note-taking, reading and testing challenges.
  • Apply a basic study strategy (TSD) that, once learned, will help tutees in all three identified areas.
  • Understand that testing as a skill consists of preparation and performance with distinct warning signs, red flags, and interventions for each.
  • Use the identified video strategies to assess their own note-taking, reading, and testing skills levels.

Description

Self-regulatory behaviors are at the heart of college success. Research shows that self-regulatory behaviors such as the ability to plan and prioritize, manage time, combat procrastination, and set goals positively influence college achievement. Consequently, it is imperative for learning support personnel, including peer tutors, to understand the relationship between these skill sets and student success. This TutorLingo interactive video functions to outline the importance of self-regulatory behaviors for both tutors and tutees: tutors as they balance the demands of their own course work and their new role as tutors; and for tutees as they identify the importance of self-regulatory behaviors and their relationship to classroom success.

Objectives:

After completing this session the tutors will be able to:

  • Understand the relationship between self-regulatory behaviors and academic achievement
  • Identify and Define Self-Regulatory Behaviors
  • Examine strategies to help tutees implement productive self-regulatory behaviors

You can buy the entire StudentLingo package (48 workshops) or we offer several a la carte options. Unlike a lot of other software companies, we don’t charge per user, so we can work with any budget. We recommend talking to other departments on campus to increase your purchasing power and to share the cost. Also, we do have a pay model whereby students pay directly. If you are interested in learning more about this option, give us a call.


Is there an admin view?

This is a feature of our platform, but comes at an additional cost. With the admin view, you get access to more advanced reporting, and you have it in real time. With the standard membership, you get monthly reports.


How have other schools leveraged reporting?
  • One of our partners, College of Southern Nevada, used StudentLingo to measure learning outcomes. in a study, one class had access to StudentLingo and the other cohort did not. 92% of the cohort with access to StudentLingo earned a whole letter grade higher than the cohort without StudentLingo.
  • A lot of our partners use the data to justify funding for grants, operating dollars, or for new program development.
  • The evaluation data is particularly useful in identifying what type of learning students prefer and the qualitative takeaways from viewing the workshop.
  • Some of our partners use the data to connect with their student information system, like Banner or Peoplesoft. 
  • I think a great way to get started on how you want to use the data is to ask yourself some questions:
    1. How will I know if StudentLingo was successful?
    2. What do I hope students will gain from access to StudentLingo?
    3. What data is important for me to know in order to show that StudentLingo is a worthwhile purchase?

No, each training is a stand-alone workshop, and they can be viewed in any order.
