Abstract

Excerpt

Each semester, we spend considerable time making sure our communication center consultants are trained to meet the specific needs of our students. With an ever-growing body of research and literature on best practices in tutoring students working on communication-related projects (AtkinsSayre & Yook, 2015, Smithberger, 2016, Turner & Sheckels, 2015, Yook & AtkinsSayre, 2015), it is important to have guides that help us plan activities designed to improve our services. A recent addition to this greater collection is Handbook for Training Peer Tutors and Mentors by Karen Agee and Russ Hodges (editors). At 448 pages, Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of tutoring that communication center professionals will find beneficial to their staff education and training programs.
