SCSE Associate Chair (Academic), Prof Vun Chan Hua, Nicholas, and SCSE Associate Chair (Students), Assoc Prof Quek Hiok Chai graced the session.

The Peer Tutoring and Peer Coaching Programme provides additional learning opportunity for students to improve on their understanding of the subjects and their grades via peer help. Both peer tutors and coaches are selected from the pool of academically competent students whom underwent a short training session by the NTU Learning and Pedagogy Division on effective teaching methods & delivery.

The key survey findings and feedback for previous semester STG sessions by the student coachees and tutees were presented during the session and areas for improvement were also highlighted to the new group of tutors and coaches. This session allows the peer tutors and coaches to meet up with their respective course coordinators to network and to understand the expectation from the course coordinators for their respective STG courses. The course coordinators would brief, guide and provide important pointers to their respective peer tutors and coaches. At the same time, it is also an avenue where the past peer tutors and coaches could share their experiences and tips with the new peer tutors and coaches.
