Abstract: In recent years there has been a greater willingness for schools to utilise the availability of parents, para-professionals and peer tutors to assist developing and struggling readers. As a consequence, a number of research studies have focused on the many benefits of tutoring, and have also identified critical elements that have contributed to successful home and school intervention programs. This paper discusses the most recent findings on literacy tutoring intervention practice and its application to the appropriate training of skilled tutors.
