The way we interact with peers pervades our everyday lives both in and outwith the school environment. In most workplaces peer tutoring helps new employees learn new skills. In schools when we get student to work together to promote learning we call this process ‘peer tutoring’. In this process we normally define and fix roles. However, these roles switch. It is normally the tutor that gets most benefit from tutoring. This was both students get to act as tutor and the benefits are maximised for both. This is called reciprocal role peer tutoring.
