This book presents and discusses a wide variety of principles involved in being an Adult Basic Education tutor. It is a highly personalized view of the field, “:irreverent”: in the sense of expressing certain views that are not necessarily those in the mainstream. Readers can peruse these 101 brief essays, accepting those ideas that appear acceptable, questioning those they regard as questionable, and rejecting those they judge rejectionable. The style is informal and colloquial to the point of being “:breezy”:, in contrast to the more academic approaches to the field. It is, at least, I believe, an entertaining way for a prospective (or working) tutor to spend an hour or so on a rainy afternoon.
