Students helping other students can be a powerful form of peer-support, and an effective way to enhance learning. While supporting their peers, students take responsibility for their learning process, which enhances their engagement, while providing an opportunity to acquire important problem solving, communication and management skills. This form of support can take many forms, such as helping with assignments, sharing class materials, offering encouragement and advise. Working together and providing support to people in their own age-group can be beneficial for both parties involved, fostering mutual understanding and trust, motivation, feeling of competence and independence, alongside with several cognitive, social and emotional benefits.
