On-Line Resources for tutors, mentors, parents, students

The Internet contains a wealth of resources for anyone to use for learning, teaching, tutoring and/or mentoring.

Tutoring and Mentoring mean different things to different people.  They also have different meanings that change based o­n the social/economic environment of the children and youth who receive tutoring and/or mentoring.  The T/MC created a power point essay, titled Defining Terms, to try to show the various forms of tutoring/mentoring needed by kids living in high poverty, inner-city areas. We feel each of these categories is important, however each needs advocates who focus o­n making sure each type of tutoring/mentoring is available to as many youth as possible.  We focus primarily o­n volunteer-based tutoring/mentoring.

However, our web site library has resources to support any type of tutoring/mentoring, for youth in any social/economic environment.  Visit the Learning Resources section to view the links. Visit the Reference Materials Link to find o­n-line encylopedias, dictionaries, etc.  Please add your rating and comment so future visitors will choose to visit sites based o­n feedback you and others provide. If you know of other learning, tutoring or mentoring web sites that are a useful resource, please submit the link to add to the library.



Note: Use the discussion section to share ideas for effective tutoring and mentoring, and to tell of o­n-line resources that have been helpful to you.
