What the Research Says

Get to know the tutor and his/her strengths/weaknesses
Get feedback on students
Get feedback on your teaching
Make rules/expectations for class and assignments clear
Get to know the teacher and his/her philosophy and expectations
Clarify how you will interact with the students in the classroom
Make sure you understand all assignments
Offer feedback on how students are doing
Ask for feedback on how you are doing
All the research we found focused on peer tutors, so some of it wasn't helpful; however, we did find a few common themes:

Benefits instructors
Benefits tutors
More students go to the writing center
De-centers authority in the classroom
Teamwork is important
Communication is key
