Students unlock their potential with Peer Tutor
Students at Seaham High School have excelled through using Peer Tutor, a peer-to-peer learning app which helps young people progress and achieve in a safe and secure environment, anytime, anywhere.
The innovative mobile app is a low cost, high quality alternative to traditional private tutoring, ideal for supporting young people through their GCSEs and A Levels.
Mia, a student at Seaham High School who has benefitted from Peer Tutor said: “I feel like I’ve been put at an advantage, not only in my exams but just in overall schoolwork because it’s helped me develop a better outlook on work and questions.”
The easy-to-use app provides students with access to personalised, one-to-one lessons, Q&A platforms and a feedback service, all provided by high-achieving students.
Achieving brighter outcomes
Joanne Pyke, a teacher at the school commented: “Peer Tutor is a fantastic way for students to research and look into their own work, and be able to find out where they need independent revision or extra help. The students really see the benefits and the outcomes, and I see it too in their results.”
Another student commented on the convenience and comfort of the mobile app as they don’t necessarily have to talk to anyone face to face and they have their phone on them the majority of the time.
Isobel added: “From using Peer Tutor and seeing the benefits of how it can help, I now want to help other students.”
Creating a level playing field
Wayne Harrison, Founder of Peer Tutor said: “I created Peer Tutor to help make a level playing field for young people. We believe that household income shouldn’t dictate educational outcomes of young people.
“Research shows that the most disadvantaged students are almost 2 years behind their wealthier peers by the time they finish their GCSEs, however, students can make an additional 5 months progress when they work with a Peer Tutor. What’s more, all peer tutors are DBS checked and verified so parents can rest assured knowing their child is safe.”
