Defining Terms

The words tutoring and mentoring mean different things to different people, based on the social-economic status and age of the youth being served, and of the different goals being served. Some times our pictures and videos help people understand how a tutor/mentor program connects kids from high poverty areas with adults and learning experiences from beyond those neighborhoods.

The Tutor/Mentor Institute (T/MI)  has published more than 1000 blog articles, focusing on a wide range of issues, illustrated by this graphic. Do a Google search for the words "tutor mentor" plus any of these words, and several links on the first page will point to articles posted about that topic. Use these to expand your own understanding of problems and potential solutions.  T/MI has also created over 60 short PDF essays, such as one, titled Tutor/Mentor, Same Words, Different Meaning - defining the terms ,  to help leaders understand the different forms of tutoring and/or mentoring that exists.
