Becoming a Reading Tutor Webinar
Presented by NTA Board Member Bill Miklosey
The primary instructional goal of this module is that prospective tutors become aware of the characteristics of an effective tutor, how to develop mutually engaging tutor/tutee relationships, how poor reading skills affect a child’s emotional well-being, and how tutoring can help address both the literacy and emotional developmental needs of the struggling reader. A careful selection of words, providing effective feedback, and assisting the student in developing the attitude of “yes, I can do this” is addressed. Finally, the process of differentiating instruction and meeting a student’s targeted instructional needs in small groups is discussed.
