Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A review of student tutoring and mentoring and the strategies needed to recognize and implement its benefits in a variety of educational environments. The 21 contributors from the UK, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa, outline the cases of university students serving as peer tutors, and mentors in primary schools, museums, and prisons. The essays acknowledge the difficulties of instituting mentoring in developing countries, and discuss practical models for setting up "tutoring schemes" which stress administrative and guidance concerns for both the student teacher and learner.
