Do students always have to take turns during peer tutoring?

No. Some peer tutoring models like the ClassWide Peer Tutoring (CWPT) model developed at the Juniper Gardens Children’s Project (University of Kansas) use a reciprocal peer tutoring format. That is, each student in the peer tutoring dyad or triad has an equal amount of time serving as both the tutor (teacher) and tutee (student) during each peer tutoring session. Other models like the Peer Assisted Learning Strategies (PALS), developed at Vanderbilt University, select one student to serve as the tutor and the other as the tutee for the entire tutoring session. Research shows that both models are effective.
