The Peer Tutoring Resource Center (PTRC) has quickly risen as a top website for peer tutoring in k-12 thanks to the educators who submit resources and contribute towards the blog. While this site’s main focus is the curation of resources that are beneficial to k-12 peer tutoring practitioners – educators who incorporate peer tutoring methods into their teaching, you’ll find that we present other related topics that are of interest to peer tutoring practitioners. This site also lists resources for topics such as collaborative learning, cooperative learning, project-based learning, deeper learning, character education and other practical teaching strategies.
The PTRC invites educators and experts who have practical experience or in-depth knowledge of the aforementioned topics to write informative articles for our blog. Can’t find your topic of interest? You’re welcome to tell us why your topic would be useful to this site’s audience of k-12 educators.
