This paper analyzes the function of the concept mapping (CM) in face-to-face tutoring. Through the study of 63 tutoring sessions developed during 36 months with 6 postgraduate students and the audio-writing recording of 200 pages of tutor’s notes, the topics on which the CM is used are analyzed, its functions on the conversational processes between tutor and student, and other elements used in visual-conceptual representation. This analysis enables to recognize the CM as a flexible tool that allows organizing the tutoring sessions and that integrates with wider narrative structures; the CM is preserved into the hypermedia; as both a graphic organizer and as interface to access to the information, and as mediator of the interthinking processes between tutor and student. This research contributes to document and develop new instructional approaches for universitary tutoring within CM. It is also suggested ideas for a new function for CmapTools.
