Over the past 20 years I’ve created a variety of visualizations to illustrate my ideas. Some of my pdf articles, like this one, originated as blog posts at http://tutormentor.blogspot.com(10-21-13). Since I want to refer to this often in future years, I am repackaging it in this format. I hope you’ll read the rest of this article and follow the links to additional information and ideas. If you agree, please form a group and begin to share this information regularly.
I’ve often been asked “What type of tutoring or mentoring do you do?”
and have had difficulty communicating the idea that volunteer tutors/mentors represent “extra adults”helping kids living in high poverty neighborhoods of big cities who have too few people in their lives who model diverse jobs and career opportunities, and who are working to help these kids move through school and into adult lives and careers.
