The road to fluency in reading and writing is a long and bumpy one. What can one-on-one tutors do to encourage their students to stick with it? Research shows that students who establish realistic goals, monitor their progress, use relevant curricula, develop effective learning skills, and have a sense of agency in their learning are more likely to persist in their educational pursuits. This workshop material includes instructional approaches and learning tools to focus student resolve and improve the chance of educational success.
