TutorTIPs Symposium: Home

Tutor Symposium

Professional development is vital to ensuring MDC tutors are providing the best support possible to our students. Learning Resources has worked together to build a tutor training program known as TutorTIPs. All new tutors, lab instructors, instructional assistants, and other personnel that deliver supplemental support to students will go through our Tutor Training Intensive Program (TutorTIPs). The first phase involves a 10-hour training combining face-to-face sessions, online tutorials covering a variety of topics recommended by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA), and the National Tutoring Association (NTA) and shadowing. Tutors must complete this training within the first two weeks of being hired to ensure that all tutors have the same foundational skills, be versed in a variety of tutoring modalities, and meet the standards of the accrediting bodies.

Additionally, Learning Resources hosts an annual TutorTIPs Symposium that brings tutors together across the college to network, learn, and present best practices.  We look forward to working with each of you as we travel on our journey to explore and implement new strategies to continue focusing and supporting our students.
