The third chapter explains the components of effective communication. Exercises are provided for developing effective communication skills. The fourth chapter describes the skills necessary to maintain a monitored, controlled, and warm environment conducive to learning. The fifth chapter provides an overview of basic principles that deal with use of time, effective practice, and means by which people learn. Help is provided for analyzing tutoring structures and techniques. The sixth chapter provides an opportunity for the tutor to identify teacher and teaching characteristics important to education as well as an opportunity to explore responsibilities associated with tutoring. The general procedures for tutoring are introduced in this chapter. The seventh chapter provides information basic to many content fields, and practice exercises for each content area.
