Virginia Western Community College takes tutoring seriously! They have an active CRLA certified tutoring program. Their tutors are very good at what they do. This comprehensive 4-hour training event demonstrated ways tutors (and other educators who were present) could used metacognition to enhance their work with students. Participants gained a thorough understanding of metacognition and the role it plays in student academic success. Participants concluded the session with strategies and resources to go beyond helping improve students’ grades to helping reshape the learning experience.
