Good job!
If this program was here last year, I would have passed Maths 2. Good job whoever this program.

One of the BEST peer tutor!

I feel that this helps me to understand the questions better due to the elaboration in the principles used for each questions to solve the problem.

The tutor knows how to explain.

The tutor is my friend so I am perfectly comfortable learning from her.

The tutor is one of the cleverest students I have ever met in MMU and I hope he continues teaching us in all the remaining peer tutor sessions.

It was the best class of tutorial with the best teacher!

Looking forward to more lessons in the future, because it allows me to understand the topic better.

The tutor is very kind as well as so helpful.

Dedicated peer tutor!

from peer tutors

Teaching others is like having revision for myself. Some of the things taught are used in my current study. It improves my communication and social skills. Tutors and students can be friend easily.

I'm actually doing revision for myself at the same time when I was preparing for the class. I can now speak more fluently in public compared to the first time becoming a peer tutor.

When I share what I know with my peer friends, I was able to discover and understand some part that I overlooked before. All in all, I was able to grasp and apply the subject I teach in a much more efficient way.

Sharing knowledge with others requires communication and interpersonal skills. Since it provides a win-win benefits for both the tutor and the students, I hope this program remains in the near future.

After joining this program, I have to prepare the materials to be discussed in the class every week and some of them are even what I have learnt but forgotten. This actually helped me to recall what I have learnt and help me in the subjects that I'm currently taking.

In this process, I'm able to know more people and even make new friends with them. The best part is, I actually feel glad when they really appreciate the help I've given. I'm feeling proud to be a part of this program, please keep it up! Thanks!
