Peer to Peer

A peer partner can be a productive way for students to keep each other motivated and on task. School is hard and it can sometimes feel lonely on your own. A peer partner who shares similar academic goals and commitment levels can help turn school into a shared, motivating experience. The partners can hold each other accountable to due dates and progress on projects, and check in on study strategies and ways to get unstuck when they’re stymied. Float the idea as a way to remove you from the equation. It’s not for everyone and a certain level of maturity is needed for it to be successful, but with the right partner, this collaboration can be empowering, mutually beneficial, foster independence, and instill confidence.
