Peer Tutoring: Student Achievement and Self-Concept as Reviewed in Selected Literature.
Land, Warren A.
This literature review focuses on research concerning the effect of peer tutoring on student achievement and self-concept in the modern classroom. Studies of peer tutoring and student achievement deal with the effects of tutoring on the instructional process, student attitudes and interests, student motivation, and pupils' self-direction. More recent studies have been concerned with improvements in achievement for both the tutor and the tutee. Studies reported on the effects of tutoring on self-concept examine effects on attitudes toward school and self; self-esteem, basic reading skills, and vocabulary; and motivation to learn. Effects of tutoring on behavior and interest in the school process are also reported. Although most programs have been designed to help the tutee, studies suggest that, in some cases, the tutor may have received the greater benefits. (AS)
