With this accomplisment, the tutors have the training they need to support the
Center for Academic Success' (CAS) mission in promoting self-efficacy
and metacognitive development to advance student success.
Topics that may be covered in training include: techniques for successfully beginning
and ending a tutor
"It was important for us to have all of the tutors CRLA certified because it
shows our tutors are formally recognized by an internationally accepted
standard of skill and training. Moreover, the certification gives positive
reinforcement for tutors doing successful work from an international organization,"
CRLA certification benefits the LSU Shell Tutorial Center, the students who receive services, and the tutors themselves. Tutors are encouraged to add the completion of their university’s tutor training program to their resumes or curricula vitae to demonstrate their leadership and comprehension abilities.
