Transferring Tutoring Techniques to TAship

Check out the following Faculty Focus blog post about the instructional impact of transferring one-on-one tutoring skills into large lecture hall classroom settings on campus.  The researchers behind this educational project identified nurturance, reflection, and “progressive” thinking tasks among the successful tutoring techniques adaptable to a large college classroom environment.  Which of these instructional skills do you implement in your TA duties?  How successful have they been?  What are some other possible pedagogical approaches from one-on-one student support that can benefit whole-class instruction?
