In the context of a large-scale dissemination project, ten different peer tutor projects were conducted, and procedures and outcomes are reviewed in this paper. Pre-and post-test data are reported for all studies, while four studies also have baseline data and two studies have comparison group data. Two studies have follow-up data for the short and long-term respectively. The evidence reviewed suggests that peer tutored Paired Reading accelerates children’s reading progress, with peer tutors gaining more than tutees.
