Tutor Education (AU 697/796: Tutoring Across Disciplines)

AU 697/796 is a required three-unit, semester-long course designed to support new LAC tutors in their development at the LAC. Over the course of the semester, tutors will explore best practices by studying academic and practical approaches to tutoring and teaching while gaining hands-on tutoring experience with SFSU students. Weekly reading and writing assignments as well as a final culminating project are required. By helping students learn, tutors will develop a more flexible and effective approach to their own reading and writing tasks, as well as add to their own repertoire of study skills. Through varied teaching and learning opportunities, such as observation and reflection, tutors learn to become more effective teachers and communicators. Class meets once per week.

Fall 2014 seminar times: Reading/Writing: Wednesday: 1:00-3:00

Math/Science: Wednesday 4:00-6:00
