AC Peers is Research-Based
AC Peers has developed the structure needed to make peer tutoring a predictable, measurable and dynamic support to student learning. Our model is based on a number of well-supported premises, including the following:
- Children are able to serve as effective instructors for peers and younger children;
- Peer tutoring results in numerous academic and non-academic benefits for both tutor and tutee;
- Meaningful work is an important component in adolescent development;
- Given increasing class size, decreasing school budgets, and escalating time pressure on families, children often need more academic support than can be provided in school or by family members.
