This manual for peer tutors on tutoring community college students was developed as part of the EASE (Equal Access for Students to Education and Experience) Project at seven community colleges in northeastern Minnesota. The manual provides a general overview of policies, benefits, and responsibilities related to peer tutoring. It then offers guidelines and procedures for accomplishing the task. The latter part of the manual deals with students with special needs such as physical disabilities and/or learning differences, followed by suggestions and strategies for tutoring special needs students. Individual sections address the following topics: the community college learning center, the peer tutor, benefits of being a peer tutor, roles of the tutor, improving interpersonal effectiveness, policies on sexual harassment, a code of ethics for tutors, 21 guidelines for peer tutoring, learning styles, time management, the questioning circle, teaching the writing process, graphic organizers, spelling, math, difficult tutoring situations, learning strategies, assistive technology, compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, a quick reference guide to preferred terminology in speaking of people with disabilities, general suggestions for working with people who have disabilities, characteristics of various disabilities, notetaking, test accommodations, and recording of textbooks. An appendix provides reproducible forms. (Contains 16 references.) (DB)
