"Whatever it takes, failure is not an option;" the meaning of this quotation is the underlying philosophy of the Peer Tutoring Program. Peer Tutoring is an intervention opportunity for any student who needs additional assistance in a course. The peer tutors are students who have at least a 3.2 GPA, who have mastered in-depth training in the tutoring process, and who have the desire, determination, and drive to support other students while working with teachers in a collaborative manner.
Peer Tutoring is a program that adheres to the philosophy, "By learning, you will teach; by teaching, you will understand." Moreover, the program lives out the thought, "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." Desiring to create and foster a place conducive to learning, peer tutors, with compassion, professionalism, confidentiality, flexibility, and dependability, recognize that they do have the gift and calling to make a difference in students' lives.
Designed by Libby Smith in the fall of 2004, the Peer Tutoring Program is an on-going, ever-changing intervention for students and staff at Triton. The program is built on the strong foundation she established as she followed her vivid vision of enabling student success.
