Academic peer support is a type of mentoring relationship in which a student receives academic guidance and support from a peer who has more experience or knowledge in a particular area. Peer support can take many forms, including one-on-one mentoring, group tutoring sessions, and study groups. Academic peer support can be particularly beneficial for students who are struggling academically or who may feel more comfortable seeking guidance from a peer rather than a teacher or academic advisor. It can also provide opportunities for students to build relationships and community within their academic program.
