Example Tutoring Session Structure

Key Insights

A strong tutoring curriculum should maintain a consistent structure from session to session.

  • While content will change across sessions, session design and flow should stay the same.
  • When session structure is routine, tutors will deliver more consistent and effective sessions. Instead of spending prep time internalizing directions and pacing, they can focus on content.
  • When students know what to expect, they can better internalize what is expected of them. Because each session has a consistent rhythm, students will feel safer and more engaged.
