They will learn and demonstrate good pedagogical tools that promote learning in chemistry. They will be trained with effective one on one teaching methodologies such as Socratic dialogue, concept modeling and scaffolding. They will also be instructed in methods that will help identify common chemical misconceptions that cause the learner difficulty with chemistry. Active tutoring, totaling 15 hours during the semester, will allow the tutors to use the identification tools and instructional methods mastered so that they can become adept at working with all types of learners and subject material. This service learning training equips each student with lifelong tools that may be used to provide community service as an effective tutor.
