Peer Advice

Perhaps the most effective training in peer mentoring and tutoring you can receive is not found in a textbook or a theoretical lecture, but rather in the experience you gain over time working directly with your peers.  Whether you are just beginning as a mentor or have substantial experience, you also can benefit from the lessons your co-workers have learned in their years of mentoring at Hanover College.  The menu to the left is a compilation of tutor tips and advice that cover a broad range of topics, from conducting one-on-one meetings to handling open hours at the Learning Center.  Keep them in mind as you develop your own mentoring techniques. We welcome you to contribute your own ideas as you learn through your work at the Gladish Center for Teaching and Learning.
