Numbers and data speak! Come learn how tutoring positively effects the tutor, which can be used to justify your center’s work and more financial support from administration. Studies in the field only address the effects on the tutee, but understanding the impact on the tutor can help in numerous ways.

The presenter for this session will begin with the limited research available on the impact of tutoring (and tutor training) on the peer tutor. Using real data from a survey she created and distributed to current/former tutors across the U.S., this presenter will then address ways in which tutoring positively affects the peer tutor and thus, retention, graduation and employment rates for these students. The session will then devote time to videos of tutors’ testimonies about the impact tutoring had on them both currently and for their future goals. It will conclude with a discussion about attendees’ experiences.
