5. How Will you Inform Your Program About Your Student's Progress
Reports, journals, and logs will help you keep a record of your student's activities and the progress she is making. Each program develops its own procedure and uses its own forms which they distribute to their volunteers.

Do's and Dont's of Tutor Reports
- Do maintain a daily or weekly log of your tutoring activities.
- Don't estimate hours or assessments. Ever.
- Do send your report in on time.
- Do fill out all required fields such as number of meetings per week, hours spent tutoring, hours spent lesson planning, goals met, sessions missed.
- Don't assume that if you've missed a reporting deadline that you don't have to send your reports in. Send them in as soon as you are able.
- Do notify the organization immediately of any major shifts or changes in your tutoring.
- Don't wait for program staff to call you about your reports.
