Training for Tutors

The Tutor Training programs within the Learning Centres have been developed based on the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) levels.
All new tutors complete Level 1 training, and returning tutors continue their training to achieve Level 2 and Level 3 certification.

Becoming a Peer Tutor

Foundational concepts and situations are presented during each level of training for tutors. Then the process is supported and supplemented with ongoing  exercises, discussions, and reflection.

Tutor Trainees will receive a minimum of 15 hours of training, coaching, and mentoring at each level coupled with their active peer tutoring of at least 25 hours in each semester.

Tutors will complete Training Integration exercises in Moodle.

Training for Current Peer Tutors

Current TLC tutors can register here for upcoming tutor training sessions. Please confirm with your Learning Centre Coordinator the level of tutor training for which you are eligible to register. 

Tutor Portfolios

Peer Tutors create a personal portfolio of their tutoring achievements and major strengths. This draws on the individual's experiential processes, reflective thinking, analytical thinking, and metacognition.

These Tutor portfolios are stories about opportunity for self-reflection and demonstration of personal and academic growth.
