Ready, Set, KNOW (2003)

A Handbook for New Tutors

Many new tutors who volunteer with literacy networks feel nervous, scared or anxious and frequently wonder what they have gotten themselves into. This handbook tries to bridge the gap between a new tutor joining a literacy program and beginning his or her tutor training program. The author's intent is to show the new tutor as realistically as possible what it will be like when he or she starts turtoring, what will be expected of the tutor, as well as what the tutor can expect from the learner and the program coordinator.

This handbook includes information about
- Getting started with your learner
- Building a successful tutor-learner relationship
- Helping your learner set realistic goals
- Planning lessons and assessing your learner’s progress.
- Finding resources to use with your learner
