Leadership in Action: Peer4Peer Online Peer Tutoring Platform

BVG News, Upper School
By: Nikhil Marwaha and Sydney Caduc, Grade 12

Last March, our community experienced a time of great uncertainty. Faced with this challenge, Peer4Peer was founded with a mission to create stability. The organization’s goal is to connect peers with one another and foster a positive learning environment in this challenging environment. Peer4Peer is an online peer tutoring platform run by students, for students. At Bayview Glen, we are very fortunate to have the privilege of a private education and online learning. However, we know this is not the reality for most students. Peer4Peer works to break the imbalance between resources available to the public system and the private school system. This initiative has been brought to Bayview Glen to help introduce students to new opportunities, further develop their learning skills. In addition, increase student’s confidence in their knowledge as a tutee or to share their own understandings and experience with others as a tutor.Last March, our community experienced a time of great uncertainty.

We may be socially distant, but we continue to learn together.
