This session will focus on best practices in supporting undergraduate peer tutors who speak English as a second language. The presentation will provide an overview of challenges faced by these multilingual peer tutors and will share training and support strategies developed for the peer tutoring program at [university name redacted].

Our 40-minute presentation will consist of three parts: an overview of the issues faced by peer tutors who are non-native English speakers and the relevant research; a description of the training and support strategies we’ve developed and put into practice; and an assessment of the efficacy of these support practices. The 20-minute audience interaction portion will include a small-group discussion followed by questions from the audience at large. This format will enable audience members to build bridges between the diversity of their own programs and come to a productive consensus on how to best support their own ESL tutors.
