Over the course of the semester we have used this blog to post about different topics and methods associated with peer tutoring. Although i have never been much of a blogger, having a resource to extend our thoughts to other students across the country has been incredible fulfilling. Blogging is rather impersonal, but it is a forum in which we can address issues and problems that may otherwise go unanswered. Using tone and different writing styles can be helpful to get a better feedback from our peers, but by posing questions and posting comments we have developed a mutual respect with one another and has made us all better writers and tutors.
Dealing with people that i have never met has actually been more beneficial than talking with people that i know. Being blind to who is talking is helpful because it opens the opportunity to be completely honest with the person on the other end of the connection. New perspectives and new ideas are also generated when we utilize minds not only here in Boulder, but also from students around the country from Pennsylvania to North Carolina.
