Tutor Essentials is an easy-to-use, rigorous online tutor training program used by K-12 schools to train community members and/or teachers as tutors. Tutor Matching Service partnered with Purdue University to develop Tutor Essentials, which is used by schools across the country to enhance their tutor training program. It is a self-paced course endorsed by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).
Designed to be used as a component of your tutor training program or as stand-alone training, Tutor Essentials is a self-paced, online course that equips tutors with the tools and tactics necessary to become a great tutor. The highly engaging course includes interactive elements such as real tutoring scenario videos, quizzes, and the creation of a personal tutoring philosophy statement. The entire training program takes 3-5 hours. The course can be completed in one sitting but also gives tutors the ability to save their work and complete it over multiple sessions. Tutor Essentials was developed by Purdue University in partnership with Study Edge, with input from CRLA certification volunteers, Emory University, Clemson University, IUPUI, and others.
