The study attempts to investigate the concept of peer tutoring and its impact on learning. Peer tutoring can be applied among the students of the same age group or students from different age groups. The students learn from each other in an organized way through the process. It is a well-organized and beneficial learning experience in which one-student acts as the tutor or teacher and the other one serves as the tutee or learner. Peer tutoring creates an opportunity for the students to utilize their knowledge and experience in a meaningful way. In this process the tutors reinforce their own learning through reviewing and reformulating their knowledge. On the other hand, the learner or tutee gets one on one attention. Peer tutoring enables both tutor and tutee to gain self-confidence, the tutor by observing self-competence in his or her capability to help someone and the tutee by gaining positive reinforcement from the peers. Therefore, peer tutoring has a very positive impact on the process of learning.
