Tutor Observation Questions

Complete the following questions using your notes from the tutoring session you observed.

  • Remember: cognitive scaffolding is the heart of the tutoring process. It bridges students from where they are with a concept or skill towards where they need to be. It works on a continuum: 1) I do while you watch and ask questions -- 2) I do and you help -- 3) you do and I help -- 4) you do while I watch and ask questions.
  • For example: What surprised you in the session? Or: what strategies or techniques did you see the tutor employ that you plan to try in your own tutoring?
