About Teach Tutors™
Providing peer tutors and aides with quality training is a critical part of creating successful tutoring and instructional aide programs; however, when I first began facilitating programs in my Northern California school district, I was unable to find an appropriate training curriculum. Over the years, I have spent countless hours researching and working with students, tutors, administrators, aides and teachers learning how to best meet this need. As a result, I have created an effective, practical and easy-to-use  peer tutor and paraeducator/classroom aide training workbook  designed to help individuals acquire critical skills to be successful working with students. I know that you will find it to be an essential curriculum for preparing your peer tutors and classroom aides to work in the classroom!
I recently updated the training materials to include additional topics such as interacting with individuals with disabilities and teaching study skills. (See the  Table of Contents  for a full listing of topics covered in the workbook.) The digital PDF version of the peer tutoring and instructional aide curriculum provides convenience and savings to schools, academic institutions and organizations as it is delivered to you right away and allows you to make copies for your program participants as needed! Since launching Teach Tutors in 2006, I've had the opportunity to speak with educators from all over the United States who have been using the workbook to train their middle school, high school and college-aged peer tutors and adult instructional aides, mentors and volunteers. There are also several schools who use the peer tutoring and instructional aide training workbook outside of the United States including schools in Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Ireland and South Africa.

Lastly, Teach Tutors has several Pinterest Boards which you can visit for additional great ideas, tips and free resources related to peer tutors, student mentors and paraprofessionals. You can follow the Pinterest Boards if you would like to receive a few new tips or lesson ideas each month. Please take a look around and let me know what you think. I am always happy to hear your ideas, suggestions and feedback. I would also truly appreciate it if you would let your friends and colleagues know about the website and the 
peer tutoring curriculum that I have developed. If you have any questions or if there is any way that I may assist you, please do not hesitate to contact me . I wish you much success!
