Reasons Why Peer Tutoring is Successful
Students feel more comfortable asking questions in small groups rather than large classes.
Peer tutors have often experienced the same difficulties and can help students through the learning process.
Students meet with the same peer tutor throughout the semester, which provides continuity and consistency to the assistance given.
Tutors help students develop and improve their study skills and learning strategies, as well as their self-confidence with regard to course material.
