Tutoring has been called “the act of saying to somebody else, ‘Let me help you learn’ ” (Chin, Rabow, & Estrada, 2011, p. 2). Teacher preparation programs regularly encourage college students becoming elementary or secondary school teachers to tutor younger learners as an early school-based field experience. Tutors, acting as teachers, must learn how to provide ideas and information to aid and encourage students to accomplish learning goals. Tutors must also assess the effectiveness of their decisions about when and how to implement different instructional strategies to respond to students’ needs.
