Peer Tutoring 11

Other

This Blended course is a combination of research, self-reflection, tutoring and applying what you have learned.

Teaching and tutoring are not methods to give students answers, but to help them understand the process of learning.  For example, if you give a child a cookie – do they know how to make cookies?  No, but if you teach them how to make cookies, they will then make their own cookies and eventually will have the confidence to make something different – they may eventually make their own recipes and become a chef!  But, that will not happen if you only give them cookies – or answers.
