Using the materials from KPU Peer Tutor Training Workbook – Level One:
- Use a Model to Create Session Plans on page 16
- Use Critical Questioning on pages 27 – 29
Review your current session plans in light of the 25 hours of tutoring that you have done so far. How have you integrated your experiences and the feedback that you have received from your tutees, trainers, faculty mentors, and Learning Strategists?
You are doing ongoing planning for your tutoring sessions. You will be sharing your plans with your Trainer and with other Tutors who tutor in the same subject areas. They will be able to help you adapt your plans and questions to the most probable situations that you may encounter. By this point you should have four to six different tutoring session plans, with reflected documentation. You may have developed exercises and worksheets for your tutees to help them learn the materials. You will have shared these with others and have posted them to your portfolio with your comments on their development.
After each tutor session that you do, you have also documented the session as noted on page 19 in your Level One workbook. In various disciplines this may be called journalling, field notes, diary, logbooks, etc. What is important is that you document what happened so that when you meet with the tutee next, you can refer to your notes and pick up from where you left off. Use a notebook to document your session plan, including the date, times, subject, goals, actions, etc. Do not write in personal information such as phone or student numbers that might breech confidentiality.
Now is the time to create a list of the materials that you have developed and written about. This will become the index of your portfolio.
