PTC-CSJ Pilots Peer Tutoring with Alabang Elementary School
20 July 2021
PTC-CSJ Foundation piloted a peer tutoring initiative with Alabang Elementary School (AES), one of its partner schools for the Growing Good to Great Kids (3G) Program in Muntinlupa City.
The pandemic has presented challenges to young learners, especially given the Department of Education’s blended learning approach.
Thus, the peer tutoring initiative was meant to help and enrich the learning experiences of 20 struggling Grade 6 learners of AES.
For four Wednesdays in June at one hour per subject, the students participated and learned from three young volunteer tutors in Math, Science and English.
The three tutors included two Grade 8 students from the Philippine Science High School and a second year college student from the Ateneo de Manila University.
During the Closing Program, the learners expressed their thanks and positive feedback to the three tutors. They also appreciated receiving incentives, including Jollibee gift certificates donated by Jollibee Group Foundation and prepaid load cards from PTC-CSJ.
