Tutor-Mentoring (EDUC 401)

In EDUC 401: Tutoring and Mentorship in Higher Education, we look beyond the specifics of content-based tutoring, and think more broadly about how students learn—and how one learns to learn.

What stands in the way of a student's ability to engage with academic material? Each student we work with will bring in a unique set of skills and knowledge as well as a unique set of factors that have prohibited him or her from being academically successful at the UW.
