Welcome to the Online Peer Tutoring Resource Center!

We launched this site in November 2013 to support you, the k-12 educator, in developing and maintaining peer tutoring in your classroom, school or district- and to promote strategies that help students bond through shared learning. On this site you will find links to resources for setting up different types of programs as well as research on best practices. Our blog is another rich resource that showcases successful peer tutoring practitioners, expert advice from educators and informative articles on pressing K12 education topics. Our forum provides the opportunity to similarly learn from each other, ask and answer questions, and to share experiences, challenges and successes. Please help us build this learning community by providing feedback and sharing resources of your own!
