Peer teaching / peer tutoring

Tutoring other pupils/students/colleagues is called in English peer teaching. In other words, teaching an equal. Thus the peer in Leerpeer. Peer teaching has many advantages which we will discuss here.

In addition to the advantages, people are critical about the quality. A random student cannot teach as well as an experienced tutor. Fortunately, this disadvantage can be remedied to a large extent by giving the student-teachers the right instruction and by letting them gain experience.

Benefits for the learner

If you get help from a peer, the other person is much more comfortable in your environment than if they were twice your age. This way you can explain subjects to each other in a slightly different way that you might understand much better. Also, students are often better able to relax and accept help from the other. This way you also have a better interaction with each other together.
