Hiring international students as tutors is a beautiful thing. These tutors add diversity, unique perspectives, and energy to tutoring centers, thus enriching students’ learning experiences. But what challenges exist when hiring and training these tutors? This session will explore best practices for training and supporting this important tutor population.

This session is appropriate for any administrator, tutor coordinator/trainer, or other professional who works in a peer assistance program. The workshop will be divided into two interactive segments. The first half will focus on training international tutors, and the second half will focus on specific ways that staff can support international tutors while they are on the job. Attendees will have the opportunity to reflect and plot next steps. Likewise, each participant will receive a packet with handouts referenced in our presentation. The presenters will use a Prezi or a PowerPoint and will make that available to attendees, as well.
