    Abstract

    In a University of Central Lancashire (England) program, upperclassmen support learning of peers through small-group peer tutoring in study skills, earning academic credits for doing so. The program targets courses with difficult content, predominance of lectures, and low rates of teacher-student interaction. Evaluation indicates reduced course withdrawal rates. Peer tutor recruitment, training, support, and assessment procedures are described. (MSE)
