Peer tutoring is helping other students or peers move themselves forward academically. In a peer tutoring session, it is important for a tutor to take time to build a rapport with the student by asking probing questions, which require more than a yes or no answer. A tutor should remember not to do the work for the student if even the student doesn't seem to get the answers as quickly as they should. A tutor should not forget how important body language and good listening skills are. Without them, a tutoring session will not go very well. In addition to asking effective questions and making verbal responses to your students, giving proper and constructive feedback is always a good way to help your students learn.
