This tutoring guide is designed specifically for education majors who assist fellow students that have not successfully passed the mathematics portion of the Praxis Examination. This exam is required for all education majors, and all three sections must be passed before the student can complete upper level courses. This guide includes two tests,which closely resemble the actual mathematics test, a quiz on measurement, various worksheets, and answer keys. Furthermore, this guide contains several suggestions for the tutor to follow before, during, and after the actual tutoring session has taken place. To compile the mathematics questions and problems presented in this tutoring guide, I merely organized actual problems I had used with students I tutored during my junior year at Northern Illinois University. To categorize the actual problems into specific types, I collaborated with Dr. Diane Kinder and Maria Ovalle, who was a fellow tutor. The suggestions I listed at the end of the guide were based on my own observations regarding techniques that were successful, as well as helpful tutoring hints I located in books and other related literature. This guide has been specifically designed to be implemented during a one-on-one tutoring session.
