Cultural Awareness

In this National Student Support Accelerator webinar, we’ll be discussing the importance of practicing and maintaining cultural awareness in tutoring. 

This video will first focus on introducing the importance of culturally aware tutoring, as well as the benefits of these practices. It will then discuss actionable steps that tutors and programs can take to ensure that their instruction is both culturally relevant and inclusive, as well as how to address cultural awareness during Pre-Service training. Lastly, this video will provide examples of relationship-building questions that tutors can ask students in order to foster more trusting and open communication, as well as a better understanding of students’ backgrounds and experiences.
