Training

The Peer Tutoring Program offers three levels of peer tutor training in accordance to the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) certification guidelines: CRLA Level 1, CRLA Advanced Level 2, and CRLA Master Tutor. Tutor training focuses on both content specific and non-content specific tutoring. Tutor Training topics include but not limited to: The 12 Steps of the Tutor Cycle by Macdonald, Learning Styles Inventory, Blooms Taxonomy of Critical Thinking, and The Model of Strategic Learning by Weinstein. In addition, tutors attend lectures on topics related to their training and have an opportunity to attend local conferences on tutoring, where they may have a chance to present on a topic in which they are interested.
