Mentor & Tutoring Programs
What is Peer Mentoring?
Peer mentors are upperclassmen who are trained in basic teaching and counseling skills. Their goal is to help other students develop effective study habits, learn to prioritize, improve decision-making skills, and ultimately, to help their peers excel.
Peer mentoring uses the power of one-to-one and peer-to-peer interaction which has been shown to be more effective, in some circumstances, than the traditional teacher to student tutoring situation.
What is Holy Trinity’s Peer Mentoring Club?
The Peer Mentoring Club is a one-hour-a-week commitment for both mentors and “mentees.” It is a quiet, focused time for students to receive academic support from their peers who have already taken the course and have practical advice to offer. All are welcome to attend Peer Mentoring, regardless of their grade level.
What does it take to be a Peer Mentor?
Any student in grades 10-12 can become a Peer Mentor by fulfilling the following requirements:
- Must complete the training seminar on basic teaching and counseling skills.
- Must have at least a B+ average in the subject that you wish to tutor.
- Must attend Peer Mentoring sessions from 3pm - 4pm in the Tiger Café every Wednesday
