  • Why peer tutoring?

    • Students at all grade levels participating in tutorial programs, improved their reading performance more than the expected gain for the typical student at that grade level. (AmeriCorps 2001)
    • Peer tutoring usually resulted in significant cognitive gains for both the tutor and the tutee. (Britz, Dixon, and McLaughlin 1989)
    • Peer tutoring is the most cost effective way to improve both math and reading performance. (Peer Research Laboratory 2002)
    • Effects on both tutors and students were positive in the areas of learning, attitude toward subject matter, and self-concept. (Cohen and Kulik 1981)
