CADE Offers Tutor Training for TA’s

Will you have a TA who tutors this semester? CADE is offering TUTOR TRAINING FOR TEACHING ASSISTANTS. In addition to introducing key concepts of how to plan and evaluate the effectiveness of an individual tutoring interaction, we will help TAs recognize the line between helping a student understand concepts without inadvertently doing the work (or the thinking) for the student. For more information about how we can help your TA work effectively with your students, please call Amy Crouse-Powers at x2819 or email her at Amy.Crouse-Powers@oneonta.edu.

CADE Ambassadors

CADE Ambassadors can come speak with your classes about the services CADE offers. Peer tutoring is available for many 100- and 200-level courses. Peer and professional writing tutoring are also available. Email Amy.Crouse-Powers@oneonta.edu or call x2819 to request a CADE Ambassador for your 100- or 200-level fall course.
