This handout summarizes four learning dimensions as outlined by the Reading Apprenticeship (RA) Framework and how these dimensions could relate to tutoring. Often, educators think of tutors as “mini-subject-experts.” However, tutors are not intended to duplicate or reiterate course content. Rather, tutors are better-suited to serve as experts in the learning process. Tutors are in a unique position to help students make social and personal connections to classroom learning. By working with peers, tutors can help students build learning skills and the ability to master classroom concepts. Consequently, this handout is intended to introduce a discussion around broadening the definition of “tutoring” to include attention to both the “affective” as well as the “cognitive” domain. This instructional tool was developed by 3CSN’s Learning Assistance Project, whose mission is to professionalize tutoring and raise the professional profile of learning assistance across California.
