Learning Outcomes for Tutors

Tutors often report that they learn as much from tutoring as their students. The WaLC's tutor training course (USI 202: Intro to Peer Tutoring) guides new tutors as they:

  • Identify connections between personal interests and abilities, programs of study, and the tutoring experience.
  • Reflect on their tutoring practice and formulate goals for personal learning and development.
  • Demonstrate an improved understanding of the tutored material.
  • Recognize different learning styles and use a variety of learning strategies in their tutoring sessions. 
  • Convey information in a variety of contexts and communicate effectively and responsibly with a number of audiences (students, faculty, staff, etc.).
  • Demonstrate effective time management and organization skills.
  • Gather and integrate information from a variety of contexts in order to address situations that arise in the work environment.
