At my college, we utilize both professional and peer tutors. How can we best leverage the years of experience of our professional tutors to train new peers? Enter the Best Practices essays, wherein veteran tutors write about their most useful techniques, which become required reading for new hires. Inclusion of the Best Practices essays in the training manual has helped new tutors learn tutor pedagogy, learn more about their peers, and determine whom to go to with questions. At the same time, the experience of writing the essays has helped other tutors better understand their own strengths and feel more confident in the role of mentors.
