Benefits of Near Peer Tutoring

Not only can a near-peer mentor provide personalized, up-to-date academic guidance, but also he or she can do so with the empathy that only someone who has recently been in the student’s shoes can provide.


Our Instructors

What truly sets GoPeer apart is our instructors. We’re extremely selective — we hire fewer than 5% of applicants, and our tutors come from top-tier colleges & universities. We believe that GoPeer’s instructors are the best in their field and provide mentorship that other tutors don’t offer.

You can view the qualifications & experience of available GoPeer Tutors at GoPeer.org.

GoPeer’s Innovative Approach to Tutoring

Whether a student needs help with homework, studying for an exam, SAT/ACT test prep, or simply wants to learn something new — the way GoPeer Tutors teach helps students build confidence, master concepts, and apply their learnings for long-term success.

At GoPeer, we know that no two students learn the same way! Some students are visual learners who process information with help from images and spatial relations. Other students may prefer to talk through concepts to understand them. No matter how they prefer to learn, we believe that every student deserves 1-on-1 personalized instruction tailored to their needs.

This belief is a GoPeer cornerstone and a North Star that guides the development of our teaching methods and technology.

During the first introductory session, the student and the tutor will discuss specific learning goals and needs. After that, the tutor will personalize the lesson accordingly. The tutor will bring in outside material and curriculum when needed. Students can also use their coursework to focus on the material most relevant to them.


The Three Pillars of GoPeer Pedagogy

Growth mindset

GoPeer Tutors use encouraging language to promote Growth Mindset, a concept pioneered by Stanford professor and leading motivation researcher Carol Dweck, PhD. Growth Mindset is the idea that we grow and better ourselves by learning from mistakes because a positive and supportive learning environment helps students do their best.

Socratic method

GoPeer Tutors ask guiding questions so that students take a more active role in reaching solutions. There’s a misconception that strong teaching is someone explaining something at you. We believe a collaborative approach rooted in Socratic inquiry is crucial for that long-term understanding.

Learning, not cheating

GoPeer Tutors do not just give away answers. Instead, tutors utilize the Socratic Method and encouraging language to help students learn concepts so that they can confidently apply them long-term — on homework, tests, and in their future classes.

Of course, these are just a few of the ways in which GoPeer supports personalized, one-on-one learning.


After the lesson

The learning doesn’t stop when the session is over. To keep parents and guardians in the loop, the tutor adds a summary of the student’s lesson progress after each class. Because the classes are 1-on-1, if a student falls behind, our instructors are able to accommodate them and adjust the teaching strategies accordingly. We regularly check in with parents to make sure that everyone is on the right track.
