Transcript of 6PQ Tutoring Method

6PQ Tutoring Method
Explanation and Benefits of the 6PQ Method
The 6PQ method involves six levels of questioning and is designed to get the student actively involved and be proactive.

Benefits of questioning verses explaining
• Questioning encourages the student to be active participants in the learning process
• Questioning helps us clearly determine what the student knows from what is uncertain
• Questioning allows students to discover the answers; therefore, the learning is more meaningful
1. Preface
Preface—The preface question should be very caring and broad.
What is it exactly that I can help you with?
What are you having trouble with?
In what way can I help you?

Before moving on from the preface question, you may need to paraphrase the information provided by the student.
2. Pace:
The pace question will set the tone for the remainder of the session.
Tell me all you know about ______________________.

Explain _______________ as best you can.

Before moving on from the preface question, you may need to paraphrase the information provided by the student.
3. Probe
This is where you will really dig deep to evaluate complete understanding of the topic.
Why?
Can you give me reasons?
What makes you think so?
Would you tell me more about ____________?

Can you give me an example?
Before moving on from the preface question, you may need to paraphrase the information provided by the student.
5. Prompt—
This is where you will guide the student, step by step, to discover for themselves.

The Church was restored on April _________?
The average of 5 and 3 is 4. How did I get that?
What is the first step in this process? Second step? Third step?
4. Prod
The prod questions encourage the student to speculate and guess.

If you had to guess, what would you say?

I understand that you don’t know, but what do you think it could be?

What is your gut instinct?

Before moving on from the preface question, you may need to paraphrase the information provided by the student.
6. Processing
Allow the student to think through the information—by restating what they learned.

Now that you understand this concept, how would you compare it to another concept?
How do you see this concept fitting into the entire course?

Now that you get it, would you like to work through some examples?
So, now, what can you tell me about _____________________?
Now, tell me everything you know about _________________.
Exceptions
There are times when you don’t have to go through all six steps. The student may discover the answer
on any step.

There are times when questioning won’t work, and you’ll have to explain. In this case, try to put the
explanation in question form.
