I’m noticing the subjects of tutoring and/or mentoring coming up more frequently in recent weeks. This might be a little like buying a blue car and you start seeing blue cars everywhere. In other words, I might notice this because my books are being used increasingly in these settings.
I know of organizations that are beginning to look at the potential for helping struggling readers with tutoring clubs or mentoring. I’m in contact with a national ministry that reaches over a million kids each year. They’re exploring the possibilities of using my books to tutor kids because they’ve noticed a need.
Prison ministries are also taking a look at my books since most prisoners have reading issues.
My publisher has extensive workbooks available (as shown above) for each of my 7 books, along with reading activity packs. There is great interest in these tools since my action-adventure & mystery books for boys already demonstrate that they keep readers interested with their fast pace, humor, and cliffhanger chapter endings.
What’s your experience with using books for mentoring or tutoring? I’d be very interested to know what you’re doing or what you've observed.
