  A peer tutor  is anyone who is of a similar status as the person being tutored. bENEFITS OF PEER TUTOR Confidence Booster Studying with someone their own age typically makes students feel more comfortable and relaxed. They don’t feel as intimidated with a peer as they might with a teacher, and may be less hesitant to ask questions. Peer tutors can share their own struggles with subject material, such as explaining the difficulties they encountered with a particular math problem or historical concept and what strategies they used to overcome it. This helps the learner feel like she is on the same level and that if the tutor did it, she can do it too. The benefits which staff report are: For mentees:    Gain practical advice, encouragement and support    Develops a supportive relationship     Assists with problem solving    Improves self-confidence    Learn from the experiences of others    Increase your social and academic confidence    Develop your communication, study and personal skills    Develop strategies for dealing with both personal and academic issues    Identify goals and establish a sense of direction    For mentors:    It widens your understanding of the organisation and the way it works    It enables you to practice interpersonal skills    It provides personal satisfaction through supporting the development of others    Improve communication and personal skills    Develop leadership and management qualities    Reinforce your own study skills and knowledge of your subject(s)    Increase your confidence and motivation    Engage in a volunteering opportunity, valued by employers    Enhance your CV    Increase your circle of friends    Gain recognition for your skills and experience    Enhances student retention  One method by which peer mentoring enhances the rates of student retention is through assisting new students to become accustomed to the new academic setting quicker. The relationship built between the mentee and mentor provides the mentee an outstanding feeling of being associated with the larger academic community, rather than feeling lost. aCTIVITIES LISTENING Order-the-lyrics This activity is a variation on the above, giving students practice in noticing the subtle differences between lyrics in music. The game plan:      Pairs get a set of the song lyrics cut up into lines.    As they listen to the chosen song, they have to put the lyrics in the right order on the table. Repeat the song if necessary. You can always have a sing-along after the activity is completed! Song gap-fill Songs are a great way to engage reluctant listeners, as they can be tailored perfectly to fit the  preferences of the students. Why not use the latest pop song? Lyric repetition is welcomed here! The game plan:      Give each student/pair the song lyrics with some words missing. To make it easier you can  put the missing words in a box at the top of the page.    Play the song, pausing if necessary. The aim is for the students to fill in the missing words.    Once at the end, go through the answers to see which student/pair got the most correct. tELEPHONE: In this game, students are responsible for listening carefully to their peers as well as successfully relaying a message. It encourages students to determine similar sounding words from one other, and can be used as a starter activity to introduce any topic.  In this game, students are responsible for listening carefully to their peers as well as successfully relaying a message.

The game plan:      Create two teams of students and set up both teams in lines. The end of each team line should be at the whiteboard.     Whisper a word or sentence to the student farthest away from the whiteboard, and then have them whisper the message they heard to the next student.
