UNDER-PREPARED STUDENTS
When Harvard opened its doors in 1636 as
America's first college, many of its incoming
students were not yet proficient in Latin.
Harvard provided tutors to help these students
acquire the proficiency needed to succeed.

UNDER-PREPARED STUDENTS
In 1907, over half of the beginning students at
Yale, Harvard, Princeton, and Columbia failed to
meet entrancerequirements. Dr. Maxwell
attributes this to their fierce competition for
students.

Learning Assistance Centers
In California in 1972 An innovation in providing
tutoring and other support services following a
unique model which "mobilized" community and
campus resources to provide what Frank Christ
(1980) described as "a facility...where
learners, learner data, and learning facilitators
are interwoven into a sequential, cybernetic,
individualized, people-oriented system to service
all students (learners) and faculty (learner
facilitators) of any institution for whom
learning by students is important." This
innovation changed the goals and focus of
tutorial support at colleges and universities.
Instead of providing services to special
populations only (as a stigma, focusing only on
weaknesses), this innovation expanded tutorial
and other instructional support services to all,
including the staff, faculty, and administration
of the college or university.

Peer Tutoring
Roueche (1983), in a national study on elements
of success in institutions of higher education,
stated that one of the components of the success
of basic skill development programs for colleges
and universities was the use of peer tutors.

Tutor Training

In 1992, the National Center for Developmental
Education at Appalachian State University
completed a follow-up study of over 6000 students
enrolled in basic skill development classes
nationwide. The study cited that "tutor training
is the best programmatic predictor of successful
college developmental education basic skill
development programs" (Maxwell, 1993).

Level III Project Math Tutor Wisdom
This document is my Level III Tutor Certification
project. It contains information that I hope will
be of use to new and experienced tutors at the
Learning Support Center. A lot of this
information is actually practical wisdom which
I and other tutors have garnered during the years
that we have been there. To collect the content
of this paper, I have interviewed numerous
contemporary tutors with whom I work. I have also
consulted with several outside educators who
specialize in one-on-one education in the public
school systems. One in particular that Id like
to acknowledge is Cathy Hutchins who is a math
specialist in the Tempe Unified School
District.   One LSC tutor from who I learned
quite a lot, and who was there on the very first
day that I tutored 9 years ago, was Paul
Scheffey. Paul passed away this year (2005), and
I dedicate this project to his memory and to my
fond recollections of tutoring by his side for
all those years
