The New England Peer Tutor Association (NEPTA) 19th Annual Conference

Nichols College, Dudley, MA

April 6, 2013


Congratulations to our staff on their presentation at the NEPTA conference involving ways to manage challenging tutoring scenarios.  The tutors presented strategies and solutions for managing some of the more common challenges faced in a university tutoring center, such as repeat appointments that show little improvement and controversial, inflammatory paper topics.  Here is the completed PowerPoint that they presented at the conference, including analysis of a survey distributed to Writing Center staff about their preparadness for handling challenging scenarios.
