     Ignore the nuts and bolts administrivia and look at the categories of being good a tutor. Skill sets, strategies, that tutors would tap into to be a good tutor - what does it mean to be a ggod tutor - what skills do I need - ultimately you can look at this difference between good tutoring online and in person.

I think part of the problem is that the studies tend to focus on different aspects of metacognition and study them independently.  I have found that often the context is important as well (i.e. it may be different for teaching non native speakers English than it is for teaching science or online vs face to face). I find that self regulated learning encompasses a lot of what your post was asking about, so I have those types of articles mixed in here.  I tried to primarily include undergraduate research, but not all of the articles do so.
