Become a better Tutor. Register for a Tutor Training Session!

Next training session Thursday, August 24

July 28, 2023 — 

The Academic Learning Centre offers free training sessions for writing and content tutors throughout the year. The workshop uses the text, Master Tutor, by Dr. Ross B. MacDonald (Cambridge Stratford Study Skills). The manual is complemented with other resources including tutor training videos and intercultural training resources.

The Academic Learning Centre will be providing Tutor Training on-campus this year before classes start on August 24th from 1:00-4:30 p.m. Tutor Training is free and open to all UM students. Registration is available at Tutor Training Registration (August 24th).

The Academic Learning Centre’s Tutor Training is designed to improve the overall quality of tutoring on campus and has been provided since 2004 to a wide variety of tutoring programs at the University of Manitoba. Participants benefit by learning about the role of a tutor and the tutoring cycle and by improving critical thinking and communication skills. Tutors who attend training and complete the assigned activities also earn recognition on their Experience Record 

Although tutors often intuitively use effective strategies during their appointments, tutor training can significantly improve the way a tutor thinks and interacts with students. Investing time in tutor training will improve the overall quality of tutoring on campus. The ALC has been providing tutor training on the UM campus since spring 2004. Tutors from Disability Services, ACCESS programs, Aboriginal Focus Programs, the ALC Writing Tutor Program, ALC Content Tutors, Bison Sport Plus, Campus Life, UMES, UM Peers, and the U1 Mentorship Program have taken part in previous training sessions.

The Academic Learning Centre offers students a variety of academic support services.
