Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book offers a scholarly and practical perspective on tutoring both as an art and [as a] science. It is a must read for those who hope to be effective tutors, for those who intend to establish serious tutorial programs, for educators and policy-makers." --Walter R. Allen, Professor of Sociology and African American Studies, UCLA "...The authors do more than prepare tutors to teach; through poignant vignettes and judicious advice, they prepare tutors to form relationships and, in the process, to learn more about themselves." --Sonia M. Nieto, University of Massachusetts "This book targets and solves the many relationship problems between tutors and clients with insight and sensitivity" --Selma R. Zimmerman, New York City Board of Education "What the novice tutor needs is reassurance. That is exactly what Tutoring Matters offers through the accounts of others and the concrete details that are so clearly presented in this book. Well done!" --Wilbur Rippy, New York's Bank Street College of Education "The most practical, concrete, appealing, and intellectually coherent preparation material I have seen. We will use it, not only in our school tutorial program, but also in our work with juvenile detention systems and the homeless." --Mark A. Chesler, Community Service Learning Programs, University of Michigan "I believe that tutoring is distinguished from teaching by the nature of the personal relationship that is built between the tutor and his or her charge. This book makes that point with crystal clarity." --Richard Cone, Joint Educational Project, University of Southern California "Essential strategies; key insights. A 'must have' sourcebook for literacy tutors." --Robert W. Maloy, co-author of The Essential Career Guide to Becoming a Middle and High School Teacher and Schools for an Information Age "...A much needed book for everyone who is called upon to assist others in the process of learning and discovery...I for one found much of value for my own work, even after 30 years of teaching..." --Helen S. Astin, University of California, Los Angeles

I do quite a bit of tutoring and this manual has been invaluable. The book covers almost every situation that could arise between a student and his/her tutor, and gives excellent advice based on real-life situations.

This manual is excellent for dealing with possible tutor-tutee or tutor-parent issues. It covers everything, including differences in race, gender, religion, socio-economic status, and sexual orientation. I found it extremely helpful in my tutoring "career," and it has helped me better relate to and motivate my students.

I was surprised to find this book very unhelpful in my new tutoring business. It mainly discusses the relationship between the tutorer and tutoree and provides no information on tutoring techniques, etc. A real disappointment!

This is so not what I was looking for. It's just some pompous ass going on about building relationships with "underprivileged" students to make himself feel godlike even though the majority of people have enough sense to do this on their own. Seeing as the title says it's "everything you always wanted to know about how to tutor," I expected that it might actually contain guidelines on how to structure a tutoring session and strategies for improving students' comprehension and retention of the material. Nope, not here, just a bunch of fluff. I hope this guy isn't as shameless about taking his tutee's money as he was about taking mine.
