Peer Tutor (elective)

This is a semester program in which the student acts as tutor to students needing special help. After being interviewed and accepted by the teacher, the student is given in-service training in methodology, curriculum, materials, and equipment used in the classroom. Under the supervision of the teacher, the tutor works with small groups of students and is responsible for preparing the presentation of the assigned lesson, directing the exercises for the lesson, and assisting in evaluation. His/her interaction with his/her student provides the individual attention necessary to improve motivation and performance, as well as the personal environment that encourages social growth.
