    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.
