Abstract

This report provides an overview of an educational psychology internship at the College of the North Atlantic, St. John's Campus. Part One describes the role and activities of the Counselling Services Office, the specific tasks and skills I engaged in, and my general observations about the work site. Part Two is a summary of research that explored participants' impressions and opinions of the peer tutoring programme that is administered in conjunction with the counselling services office of the Division of Student Services. The results indicate that the participants view the programme as a valuable service offered by the college. While the programme contains many of the components recommended for effective tutoring a key recommendation is that training for tutors and a programme evaluation procedure be designed and implemented.
