A set of tutorials (some of which were already mentioned) are  
collected on the Scheme Cookbook:


I find the first link there (Joe Marshall's tutorial) particularly  
interesting as it introduces pattern matching on dotted pairs before  
pattern matching on and templates with ellipses.  (This is  
interesting to me because I learned about and used ellipses in macros  
long before I grokked dotted pairs.)
